Sarawak’s Legacy Awards Make an Impact

An initiative from the Sarawak Convention Bureau, the Anak Sarawak Awards (ASA) recognise the legacy impacts of not only conventions, but also of the convention hosts as well. It is the first award in the country to officially accolade the contributions of convention hosts, industry partners and the media to the growth of the sector.

Dr. Ravi Chandran, winner of the previous Convention of Excellence Award at the 8th Anak Sarawak Awards 2016, explained that the ASA has inspired professionals to harness their potential as convention ambassadors for the betterment of the general society. He added that professional development is only one aspect of any congress in yielding legacy impacts.

“Beyond recognising excellence of the sector, the ASA functions as a legacy enabler; bringing together decision makers from various functions and sectors to co-create purposeful projects which will indefinitely impact the delegates, the destination’s community, destination partners and many more,” said Amelia Roziman, Chief Operating Officer of the SCB.
