After the 55th ICCA Congress in 2016, Sarawak is now ready to welcome another ICCA event, a hybrid one this time. The Asia Pacific Regional Hub for ICCA Congress 2020 will be held from 31st October until 5th November 2020 at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) with BESarawak as the local host and organiser.
Themed “ICCA Tribe Legacy”, the event will highlight the importance of business events beyond delegate expenditure, which lies at the core of BESarawak’s mindset. . The 6-day hybrid Regional Hub Congress – to run simultaneously with the main ICCA Congress 2020 at Kaohsiung, Taiwan – will bring together association executives, local and national industry professionals and ICCA members to follow on-site education sessions which will be live-streamed in Kaohsiung.
“Sarawak is delighted that we will have the opportunity to share with fellow Congress participants our wider perspective that conventions bring both economic and long-term legacy impacts. Sarawak is proud to be one of the world’s leaders in this conviction. Legacy building is a “win-win” for the local host organisations, professional sectors, government entities and the society at large. In short, everyone benefits from convention legacies,” said Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture and Minister of Youth and Sports, Datuk Haji Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.
