Malaysia secures three major international conferences

Malaysia won the bids to host the World Tunnel Congress (WTC) 2020 in conjunction with the 46th International Tunneling and Underground Space Association (ITA-AITES) General Assembly; the 17th World Congress for Endoscopic Surgery of the Skull Base and Brain (ENDO KL) 2020 and the Congress of the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) 2022.

Together the conferences will attract 3200 delegates to the country, 60 per cent of which are expected to be from overseas.

Malaysia Convention and Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) CEO Datuk Zulkefli Hj. Sharif said the conference wins reflect Malaysia’s commitment to becoming the “top-of-the-mind country of choice globally for business events”.

“All these augur well for the continued dynamic growth of the business events industry in the country,” he said.
