A division of Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB), an agency under the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, Malaysia (MOTAC), it was established under the Government’s Economic Transformation Programme (Entry Point Project 7) to identify, promote, facilitate as well as support viable international events to be staged in Malaysia.

“Malaysia Major Events has been participating in SportAccord Convention for the past five years, and this will be our first time as a Gold Partner. SportAccord Convention has given us an amazing platform to meet and network with international sports federations and presidents. This has resulted in positive leads, which have turned into several winning bids for Malaysia in terms of international sporting events. We are excited that the Convention will be hosted in Bangkok and we anticipate a lot more participation from the ASEAN region.” said Tony Nagamaiah, General Manager of Malaysia Major Events (MME).

Commenting on the partnership, Nis Hatt, Managing Director of SportAccord Convention said, “We are delighted to hear that Malaysia Major Events has gained significant value as a SportAccord Convention partner over the years. Their investment in becoming a Gold Partner for the first time is testament to the successes they have attained from previous Conventions. It is a real pleasure to have Malaysia Major Events onboard as a Gold Partner.”
