Posted on Dec 20, 2019 by admin@MIMLS
MIMLS was invited to the "Kesatria Gala Evening 2019" held on 12th December 2019 (Thursday) at the Pavilion 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. This year's event is also held in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of MyCEB.
MIMLS was represented by our President Mr. Khew Jye Kang, Past President Ms. Faridah Robiah Ismail, Honorary Secretary Mr. Tan Kian Shing and Council Member Ms. Harvinder Kaur Lakhbeer Singh. Other than MIMLS, many other professional associations and industry leaders were invited to this event. Four new conference ambassadors have been inducted this year, namely Prof. Ir. Dr. Dominic Foo (Past Chairman for Chemical Engineering Technical Division, The Institution of Engineers Malaysia), Mr. Jack Shen Lim (Honorary Treasurer, Malaysian Pharmaceutical Society), Prof. Dr. Harikrishna K.R. Nair (Founding President, Malaysian Society of Wound Care Professionals) and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nazirah Hasnan (President of Malaysian Association of Rehabilitation Physicians).
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.
