MACEOS Plans to Set New Policy to Grow

November 21, 2016

Currently with over 100 members, the Malaysian Association of Convention and Exhibition Organisers and Suppliers (MACEOS) plans to expand its membership. In discussions with local government, new organisations will need to become members of MACEOS before being granted a license to operate.

Separately, MACEOS recently launched its first Professional Exhibition Management and Professional Conference Management course in Kuala Lumpur and Kuching, aimed at training the labour force for the growing events industry in Malaysia. Similar programmes will also be held in Penang and Sabah later this year.

MACEOS president, Vincent Lim, stated, “Growing our membership is one of our main focus as this will enable us to have a bigger voice in the business events industry in Malaysia. This is a continuous effort. Our subcommittee has expanded its wings in the northern region and Sarawak and soon we will expand further to the southern region and Sabah."
