Pooling together resources and ideas, ICCA Malaysia members will offer a variety of technical study tours covering Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC), Putrajaya International Convention Centre, Penang and Sabah for qualified delegates. Two ICCA Malaysia members – KLCC and Sarawak Convention Bureau – are also sponsoring congress registrations for Malaysian association executives, and five ICCA Young Professional Scholarships.

The ICCA Malaysia Committee also took the opportunity to talk with ICCA president Nina Freysen-Pretorius on how to leverage on the opportunities as the host country.

In addition to the wide ranging congress program, which will feature the Best Marketing Award and The Copenhagen Denmark Lecture, this year’s President Choice Session is titled “Building bridges in a broken and unequal world: What can leaders do?” Drawing on experiences as a leader on campuses and communities in South Africa after the end of apartheid, Prof. Jonathan Jansen will share actions that can be implemented to bring divided people together and how international conferences can be an effective platform for building bridges in an unequal world.

More than 800 delegates from all over the world will converge at Borneo Convention Centre Kuching from November 13-16.
