From 4 – 6 February 2015, over 5,000 participants and 70 exhibitors will cover a 5,000 sq metre exhibition space at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, forming a platform for real estate professionals and investors in the country, and from across the region to do business, network, and form partnerships. Attendees and exhibitors will comprise regional and international real estate developers, investors, financiers, architects, urban planners, and other real estate service providers.

Besides the exhibition, Cityscape Malaysia 2015 will also play host to a plethora of knowledge-sharing and networking events including the Malaysia Real Estate Summit, where members of the real estate industry will be able to share knowledge, exchange views, develop new relationships, and analyse investment opportunities in the vibrant Malaysian real estate market. The Islamic Property Finance Forum, a one-day tailored forum, will provide real estate companies with tangible tools on how to explore the world of Islamic Finance as it relates to real estate, such as sukuk.

‘Toques’ in the Air for Worldchefs Congress 2018!

Kuala-Lumpur-Convention-CentreIt was a win worth tossing one’s ‘toque’ (a chef’s tall white hat) in the air when the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre’s (the Centre) award-winning culinary team heard Malaysia had won the bid to hold the Worldchefs Congress 2018, especially when the host venue will be none other than…the Centre.

 

And according to the Centre’s Executive Chef, Richmond Lim, the win is made all the more prestigious given the 2018 congress will only be the second time in the organisation’s 86-year history that the event will be held in South-east Asia.
“The team can’t wait to host the over 1,000 delegates of the culinary world’s crème de la crème. They want to get started now on brainstorming for ideas to ensure we ‘leave no stone unturned’ in our efforts to showcase the best produce and ingredients Malaysia has to offer and to ensure these culinary experts have a truly unique Malaysian gastronomic experience they will never forget!”
A delighted Alan Pryor, General Manager, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, said the selection of Malaysia for the event recognises the country’s business tourism capabilities. “This is a huge honour for the country, Kuala Lumpur City and of course, the Centre. We’re looking forward to putting Malaysia’s growing culinary industry on the global stage and sharing her culinary diversity with some of the world’s best chefs.”
Organised by the World Association of Chefs’ Societies (Worldchefs), the bi-annual event gathers culinary heavyweights from around the world to discuss developments in the culinary field and compete in the Worldchefs Global Chefs Challenge. A trade show component will showcase the latest products in the global food and beverage industry.
Worldchefs Congress is expected to generate an estimated RM11 million (US$3.4 million) in economic impact for the country and draw an attendance of around 1,000 delegates.
Founded in October 1928 at the Sorbonne in Paris, France, Worldchefs is a global network of chefs associations dedicated to maintaining and improving the culinary standards of global cuisines through education, training and professional development of her international membership. The global body currently has 100 official chefs associations as members that represent over 10 million professional chefs worldwide.

Third International Conference on Small Island discussed the importance of aviation in the growth of the island

Third-International-Conference-on-Small-Island-Developing-States-300x147As leaders from small island states around the world gather in Samoa for the Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States, a group representing the aviation industry  applauded the conference’s support for both sustainable tourism strategies and the development of sustainable transport systems in the small island states.

 

Michael Gill, executive director of the Air Transport Action Group said that air transport plays a vital role in the lives of people on small island states around the world: “Aviation supports 1.7 million jobs and $37 billion in GDP in small island states around the world. Around 151,000 people are employed within the industry itself at airports, airlines and air traffic management organisations and the rest are within the supply chain and in tourism supported by aviation. That tourism is a vital source of foreign revenue for islands – one that can be more sustainable than other sources of income such as fishing.”

“Perhaps more importantly, air transport provides connectivity for island residents – those seeking higher education or healthcare, to do business or to visit friends and relatives overseas. With the right conditions, our Aviation: benefits beyond borders report forecasts that air transport could support nearly 3 million jobs and $83 billion in GDP across small island states by 2032.”

The draft outcome report of the conference states that “tourism represents an important driver of sustainable economic growth and decent job creation… transportation and mobility are central to the sustainable development of small island developing States. Sustainable transportation can enhance economic growth, promote trade opportunities and improve accessibility… We also recognise the importance of the efficient movement of people and goods in fostering full engagement in local, regional and global markets and the potential for sustainable transportation to improve social equity, health, the resilience of cities, urban-rural linkages and the productivity of rural areas of small island developing States.”

Gill said: “We applaud the leaders meeting in Apia for their support for the sustainable development of both local tourism industries and the transport links that connect their islands to economic and social opportunities around the world”.
