ASIA – The Malaysia Convention and Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) has partnered with the International Association of Professional Congress Organisers (IAPCO) to run a regional seminar and training session on professional conference management for meeting planners.
 
To be held 14-16 March 2012 in Kuala Lumpur, the seminar will feature speakers such as Mathias Posch, President of the International Conference Services (ICS) Canada; Sarah Storie-Pugh, Ambassador of Congrex UK London; and André Vietor, MD of the Viajes Iberia Congresos, Barcelona, Spain.
