Penang hosts its largest convention yet

Penang recently hosted 16,000 delegates from 70 countries for five-days at V-Malaysia 2018, an annual convention organised by QNET.

It is the fifth consecutive year that V-Malaysia has chosen Penang as its convention destination.

The event was supported by Penang Convention & Exhibition Bureau (PCEB and took place at the end of April at Setia SPICE Convention Centre and Setia SPICE Arena. Themed ‘One People. One Planet. One Purpose’, the conference serves as a platform to motivate individuals to not only improve their lives and the lives of others, at the same time to celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship.

Also celebrating the 20th anniversary of QNET, the opening ceremony of V-Malaysia 2018 on 24 April was attended by the caretaker chief minister of Penang and chairperson of PCEB Lim Guan Eng; executive chairman of QI Group, Dato’ Sri Vijay Eswaran and deputy chairman Joseph Bismark. Joining them were also QI Malaysia chairman Tan Sri Megat Najmuddin Megat Khas; QNET Malaysia chairman, Datuk Pahlawan Tuffile Nawab.

“I would like to thank QNET for organising the conference in Penang for the fifth consecutive year and congratulations on your largest convention yet in Malaysia,” said Lim during the conference’s opening ceremony.

The first V-Malaysia to be held in Penang was in 2008 where it celebrated its 10th anniversary. The conference returned to Penang again in 2014 before continuing the streak and, last year, V-Malaysia recorded a total of 15,000 delegates in Penang.

V-Malaysia 2018 includes a series of training programmes, motivational speeches, unveiling of new lifestyle products, various entertainment events and an exhibition.
