Kesatria Gala Evening 2018
Posted on Jan 15, 2019 by admin@MIMLS
MIMLS was invited to the "Kesatria Gala Evening 2018" held on 4th December 2018 (Tuesday) at the Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. It was organised by the Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB), a non-profit organisation under the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia. With the theme of 'Batik Malaysia', the event was graced by YB Datuk Mohamaddin bin Ketapi, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia, who's also the Chief Patron of Kesatria Malaysia.
MIMLS was represented by our President-Elect Mr Khew Jye Kang and Honorary Secretary Mr Tan Kian Shing. Other than MIMLS, many other professional associations and industry leaders were invited to this event. Three new conference ambassadors have been inducted this year, namely Prof. Dr Goh Bak Leong (Past President of Malaysian Society of Nephrology), Assoc. Prof. Dr Norhayati Abdullah (Vice President of Malaysian Water Association) and Prof. Dr Tan Maw Pin (Treasurer of Malaysian Society of Geriatric Medicine).
Kesatria Malaysia Programme is modelled on the best of similar programmes internationally, also known as the Conference Ambassador Programme. It is an initiative by MyCEB whereby leaders of key industry sectors who have previously hosted large scale international events, voluntarily assist in identifying and encouraging other potential local hosts to bid for and stage international conventions in Malaysia. The gala dinner is held annually to honour the champions from Malaysian key economic sectors and to celebrate the contributions of these Kesatrias.
