Malaysia is prepared to showcase our capabilities in hosting major international business events, and we are confident that our country will pull off a great show. MyCEB also takes the opportunity to congratulate the organiser of Enlit Asia, Clarion Event Pte Ltd for their remarkable work and we are looking forward to supporting them in next year’s show,” said Mr. Zain Azrai Rashid, Acting Chief Executive Officer of MyCEB.
Enlit Asia is an annual conference that unifies two influential events in the power and energy sector, POWERGEN Asia and Asian Utility Week, which has long been a beacon of innovation and collaboration in the industry.
“We are thrilled to bring Enlit Asia 2024 to the vibrant landscape of Malaysia, where innovation converges with tradition. This event promises to illuminate new pathways in the energy sector, showcasing Malaysia's commitment to a sustainable and dynamic future power system,” said Simon Hoare, Event Director, Enlit Asia.
The transition also symbolises the successful ongoing collaboration and synergy between Malaysia and Indonesia in the field of business events. Apart from the handover ceremony, MyCEB’s visit to Jakarta is a follow-up from last year’s trip to further strengthen the bilateral relation between the two countries in becoming the preferred destinations for business events.
“Last year's impactful results demonstrate the strength of our regional collaboration. We value our neighbors and their shared lessons. This year, we aim to engage with more Indonesian counterparts to enhance the business events industry and strengthen ties with Indonesia's news agency. This advances Malaysia's reputation as a premier global destination for business events. We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to our counterparts in Indonesia for their hospitality and trust in us,” Mr. Zain further noted.
