The Malaysian Government has decided to reopen the business events sector, allowing the industry to host domestic events with up to 250 participants effective immediately, under comprehensive Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). The Business Events Council Malaysia (BECM) welcomes this decision. The announcement demonstrates the recognition and importance of the business events industry in contributing to economic recovery and affirms the Government’s confidence that the sector can operate safely, and provide a controlled, regulated and secure environment for the commencement of events.

“The entire industry is excited to have been given the green light to resume business events, and we would like to express our appreciation to the Government for their support and understanding. We would also like to thank the Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) for their critical role in communicating with the Government during this time and working with us to develop and present our SOPs, which are focused on ensuring the safety of everyone involved in business events.”, says the Chairman of BECM, Mr Alan Pryor.
