The Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) to lure more Meetings & Incentive groups from China with Malaysia Twin Deal ++It is all-systems-go for the Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) as it geared up to visit China for its third roadshow from the 23-30 August 2013. This comes shortly after the appointment of Travel Link Marketing (TLM) as their representative office in China. TLM has offices based in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou will be responsible for assisting MyCEB in securing more wins for the country.
MyCEB team and its industry partners will be covering four cities namely Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing. This roadshow is made even more significant as it will be MyCEB’s first roadshow in Chengdu, a strong indication of the bureau’s presence in China. MyCEB leads a delegation of 11 industry partners including Sabah Tourism Board, YTL Hotels, Resorts World Genting and Mayflower Acme Tours.
Amongst the programme that has been planned during the roadshow are the highly interactive Malaysia Open House and Spice Market, table talk sessions where MyCEB and its partners will be meeting key China’s meetings and events planners and corporate houses . At the same time, the Bureau will also be introducing its latest offering - the Malaysia Twin Deal ++ (MTD ++). The MTD++, a global campaign is aimed to support Tourism Malaysia’s objective to welcome 28 million international tourists to the country under the Visit Malaysia Year 2014 campaign. Participants of the roadshow are also entitled to a lucky draw session, where they will win a trip to Malaysia with flight tickets sponsored by Malaysia Airlines.
According to Ms Ho Yoke Ping, General Manager of Sales & Marketing, MyCEB, “This trip to China is particularly special to MyCEB as we are not only bringing the MTD ++ but it is also to introduce our new representative office in China. At the same time, it is our first time introducing our world renowned Spice Market to China. This will be complemented with the Malaysia Open House and other cultural showcase. We hope that our counterparts in China will enjoy the experience of our unique Malaysian culture and hospitality through these activities.”
The MTD ++ is tailored to enhance the experience of international corporate meetings and incentive groups through Deal 1 and Deal 2. The privileges included in Deal 1 for delegates range from welcome gifts to cultural showcase during dinner or even a complimentary dinner. Deal 2 on the other hand offers various exciting incentive rewards for meeting planners such as a vacation for two in Kuala Lumpur and an iPad mini. This is applicable for agents who bring in an accumulative 500 participants and above.
In addition to Deal 1 and Deal 2, the MTD++ was designed to include special value added benefits in collaboration with participating hotels in Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Langkawi, Sabah and Sarawak. These special value-add items include discounts on meeting packages, complimentary rooms with minimum 25 paying rooms and free welcome amenities. The impressive line-up of participating hotels includes global brands such as Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, Le Meridien, Four Points by Sheraton, Berjaya Tioman Resort and 31 more hotels.
