MBEW 2019, organised by Malaysia Convention and Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB), is scheduled to take place on August 28 at the Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur under the theme: Progressive Momentum.
To encourage sustainable event practices and reduce the use of plastic and non-recyclable items, MBEW 2019 is introducing a hashtag campaign (#mbeNOWASTAGE) and participants are encourage to bring their own water bottle to the conference.
The conference agenda is designed to allow participants to share knowledge, establish new and influential contacts and be involved in the business events industry through series of talks led by experts.
