Penang Convention & Exhibition Bureau (PCEB) is preparing to host the inaugural ICCA (International Congress and Convention Association) Asia Pacific Chapter Summit 2019, 5–6 December.
The Summit will be organised by the ICCA Asia Pacific Chapter and co-hosted by PCEB and Anderes Fourdy, a Malaysia-based PCO.
It will be held at the Setia SPICE Convention Centre in conjunction with Malaysia’s largest Business Events conference, BE @ Penang, co-organised by PCEB and Fourdy.
“We are delighted to congratulate Penang as host of the first-ever ICCA Asia Pacific Chapter Summit and the bid team for having prevailed in the face of stiff competition from a strong field of bidders,” said ICCA Asia Pacific Chapter Chair, Jason Yeh in the official announcement.
“The combination of the ICCA Asia Pacific Summit being held in Penang together with BE @ Penang is a great correlation to further educate and encourage the strong bond within the Business Events industry,” added Ashwin Gunasekeran, CEO of PCEB.
“We look forward to welcoming the delegates in December, and we are certain that they will have a constructive, fun, engaging and an ‘Experiences Unfiltered’ time in Penang,” Gunasekeran said.
