Sarawak to Develop World’s First International Journal of Business Events and Legacies

By | 2022

Business Events Sarawak will publish an international journal of business events and legacies, with the collaboration of Australia’s Curtin University campus in Malaysia, while the Universiti Teknologi MARA Sarawak and the Sarawak Research Society are strategic partners in expanding the journal’s reach and visibility across professional networks.

Currently, there are nine journals on business events, but none have been found to review business events as a whole, inclusive of corporate meetings and corporate incentives. Sarawak’s international journal of business events and legacies will be the first research publication in Southeast Asia, to focus on both business events and legacies.

The international journal of business events and legacies, will address pressing contemporary issues within current events, and  related legacies, featuring strategies; case studies, and viewpoints, in which the industry’s capabilities on event planning and delivery are highlighted.

It will be a resource for industry students, practitioners, researchers and policymakers to understand the relationship between hosting business events and correlating activities, such as; economics, entrepreneurship, hospitality, management, marketing and tourism.

Ms. Amelia Roziman added: ‘’BESarawak will be signing a memorandum of understanding with the International Convention and Congress Association at IMEX Frankfurt this year. Global partnerships with ICCA and similar associations, will give the journal further international recognition.

Presently, there are 44 members from 15 countries who will share their resources in the making of the journal. These members are from; Malaysia, Singapore, UK, Italy, France, Spain, Australia, China, USA, Oman, Libya, Serbia, Iran, Greece and Switzerland.

According to BESarawak, international collaboration is expected to increase in the future.

Statement on the Crisis in Ukraine Issued by the Events Industry Council

By | 2022

Events are designed to bring people together, for the common good. By their very nature, events do not discriminate between race, ethnicity, gender, social class, cultural identity, or borders.

The Events Industry Council strongly denounces the war in Ukraine and condemns the clear violation of international law. We are deeply disturbed by the humanitarian crisis unfolding, which will ultimately impact other countries and regions across Europe and are concerned for the safety and well being of the people of Ukraine.

The military invasion of Ukraine is in direct conflict with the values that all of us who serve the Events Industry Council and our global community passionately believe in, and we strongly oppose any form of violence and oppression that negatively impacts the safety and security of those that work in the events industry across Ukraine, their families, colleagues and indeed all Ukrainians.

All of us at the Events Industry Council, and our global EIC family, have been deeply moved by the bravery, courage and resolve of the Ukrainian people and the incredible show of support from our own community and across the world.

We stand firmly with Ukraine and urge all parties to work towards a peaceful resolution.
