Sabah Tourism Board reaches out to business event organisers1 Apr 2022
KOTA KINABALU (April 1): The Sabah Tourism Board has called on business event organisers to reach out for assistance in planning and holding major national and international conferences in the state.
Tourism, Culture, and Environment Assistant Minister Datuk Joniston Bangkuai said constant engagement with the board is key to ensuring that all stakeholders work collaboratively to prepare for the return of business events.
With the Malaysian border now open, Joniston said they anticipate more business conferences and exhibitions will take place in the near future as industry players choose Sabah as a venue for business events.
“The Sabah Tourism has launched ‘Sabah: BE here for you’ campaign in 2020, targeting the Business Events industry. It is still running to this day, and the campaign involves a RM5 million grant incentive from the state government.
“Eligible applicants can apply for this grant up to RM100,000 maximum per group, for both national and international events meetings,” he said, inviting business event organisers to take advantage of the opportunity.
Joniston, who chairs Sabah Tourism Board, was speaking at the BE (business events) Get Together dinner reception here, on Thursday…
