Malaysia in training for post-pandemic bidding war
Members of the Malaysian meetings industry have been developing their skills and knowledge in anticipation of a ‘much more challenging’ market when the pandemic recedes.
More than 100 delegates attended a workshop – called MyBE Knowledge: Innovative Bid 2021’ – organised by The Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB).
The virtual event – the seventh in the series – was aimed at those who are involved in securing business events through lead generation and bidding process.
“Make no mistake, we cannot be complacent as the post pandemic era bidding will be much more challenging. Therefore, we need to equip ourselves with the right information, data knowledge, market intelligent coupled with the innovative ideas, creativity, solutions, and secret recipe to win” said Noor Ahmad Hamid, the chief operating officer of MyCEB.
The programme consisted of two faculty speakers – YBhg. Prof. Dato’ Dr. Hanafiah Harunarashid, the Consultant Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) Medical Centre, and Douglas Archer, the Conference Manager of World Cargo Alliance (WCAworld) sharing their experiences from the perspectives of the local host and client.
Prof. Dato’ Dr. Hanafiah, said: “I am thrilled to share my experience in bidding for Asian Congress of Surgery 2019, and I hope the sharing helps to emulate future bid for Malaysia. As a member of MyCEB’s Kesatria Congress Ambassador Programme, I am pleased to support the MyBE Knowledge: Innovative Bid as bidding is my passion”.
