The countdown for the two events co-hosted by the Asian Federation of Exhibition and Convention Associations (AFECA) and the Malaysian Association of Convention and Exhibition Organisers and Suppliers (MACEOS), is now on. The AEC+ EXPO joins 150 or more exhibitors from Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan, Japan, China and other Asian regions to promote the best each nation has to offer during this three-day event beginning from November 11 to 13 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.

Walter Yeh, President of AFECA said, “This endeavour goes a long way toward establishing AEC (ASEAN Economic Community) which is based on robust regional development, with the ASEAN region composing the 7th largest economic region with 10 percent of the world’s population.”

AFECA he further stated, will do its part, to enhance the emerging AEC community by playing its role as the exclusive MICE association for Asia to exhibit at EXPO.

This November’s events will also include the AFECA Awards, AFECA Forum and the AFECA Asia MICE Youth Challenge to commemorate AFECA’s 10th anniversary that aims to inspire young MICE professionals by showcasing their achievements.
