One of Khani’s missions will be to “bring the voice of Asia Pacific membership to the ICCA global board of directors”. This includes encouraging ICCA to invest more towards Asia Pacific region while undertaking a strategic market intelligence study for the region.

“Even though I am new to this large ICCA family… I am not a total stranger to the business events industry,” Khani said.

Khani was appointed to the Malaysia Convention Bureau’s board of directors in 2017 while he served as deputy director general of Tourism Malaysia.
