Growth Expected for Malaysia's MICE Market

September 19, 2011

The Malaysia Convention and Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) is looking to build on the growth recorded from MICE last year and is aiming to grow Malaysia’s business travel arrivals from the current 5% of total arrivals to 8 percent by 2020.

MyCEB reportedly supported 28 convention bids worth US$146 million in 2010. Through MyCEB’s recent campaign, a further 16 events have already been confirmed for this year, with a further 33 in the pipeline. The bureau has also launched a new international events unit along with an industry partnership programme to encourage local associations to bid for hosting rights at international conferences.
