I would also like to place on record my grateful appreciation to the past EXCO, Jason Yeh, Outgoing Chair and current ICCA first Vice-President; Keiko Nishimoto and Anna Case, former Deputy Chairs who made meaningful impact and supported the growth of the Asia Pacific chapter. The new EXCO are here to continue that legacy and we look forward to working with the new leadership to serving the ICCA Asia Pacific community.”

Ashwin Gunasekeran, CEO Penang Convention & Exhibition Bureau (PCEB) Malaysia, who currently heads the ICCA Malaysia Committee, now takes on the role of Chair. He will be supported by Keiko Nishimoto, Research Fellow Kyoto University Graduate School of Management Japan, who was re-elected as Deputy Chair/Treasurer, alongside Eric Abramson, International Project Director Guangzhou Yuexiu International Congress Center China, as co-Deputy Chair.

Gunasekeran said he was “honoured” to be elected as the Chair for the ICCA Asia Pacific Executive Committee. “I look forward to forging ahead with a whole series of initiatives with the EXCO and ICCA Asia Pacific Office so together we can continue to grow as a collective voice of ICCA,” he said.
