The Malaysia branch of leading destination management company Destination Asia has launched a professional conference organiser (PCO) division, in response to growing demand for specialist management of conferences and events in Malaysia.
Based in Kuala Lumpur, the new team will be lead by Grace Dong (right), who brings 12 years of professional conferencing experience to her new role as director of conference and incentives, and Anitha Krishnan (below), appointed business development and conference planner.
Services include finance solutions, integrated product solutions, research, venue sourcing and contracting, complete event management, sponsorship programmes, marketing and promotion support, exhibition management, printing services and strategic sales and marketing.
Case study: UK familiarisation
Destination Asia Malaysia showed British delegates the sites and event opportunities in Kuala Lumpur and Langkawi during a five-day trip in October.
Participants came from nine UK-based event companies, thanks to the collaborative efforts of Tripglobal Marketing Connections (GMC), UK, Malaysia Airlines, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Kuala Lumpur and Four Seasons Resort Langkawi to organise the event.
Itinerary highlights included a city tour of Kuala Lumpur on Harley Davidson bikes (main picture) and island hopping around Langkawi.
