CEO, Malaysia Con­ven­tion & Ex­hi­bi­tion Bureau (MyCEB) The ma­jor fac­tors in­flu­enc­ing In­dian cor­po­rates’ choice of venue for

or­gan­is­ing MICE trips are:

Strate­gic Lo­ca­tion

Malaysia is eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble from any part of In­dia with in­creased di­rect flights of­fered by both full ser­vice air­lines and low cost car­ri­ers. It is con­sid­ered a medium haul des­ti­na­tion in terms of fly­ing time, as most flights be­tween Malaysia and In­dia take around 4–7 hours, mak­ing it a pre­ferred des­ti­na­tion for host­ing busi­ness events.

Com­fort and Lux­ury Ex­pe­ri­ence

Be­ing a multi-racial coun­try where all forms of re­li­gion, cul­tures and tra­di­tions are ac­cepted and re­spected, Malaysia is able to cater to the var­i­ous di­etary re­quire­ments of del­e­gates from In­dia. MyCEB helps fa­cil­i­tate and ad­vise event or­gan­is­ers on places and venues which are able to cater to spe­cific di­etary re­quire­ments of del­e­gates (veg­e­tar­ian, low-sugar, low-sodium diet). Most venues in the coun­try of­fer a cus­tomis­able menu, based on re­quire­ments of meet­ing plan­ners and del­e­gates. There are a lot of In­dian restau­rants in Kuala Lumpur and all ma­jor cities in Malaysia across var­i­ous bud­gets, from high-end to high-street. For ex­am­ple, Bom­bay Palace, Pas­sage Thru In­dia, Na­maste and Sar­a­vanaa Bha­van. With a strong pop­u­la­tion of Malaysians be­ing In­dian, cul­tural and lan­guage sim­i­lar­ity be­tween Malaysia and In­dia makes it a pre­ferred des­ti­na­tion for meet­ing plan­ners. The del­e­gates will def­i­nitely feel at home and be at ease with the warm and friendly Malaysian hos­pi­tal­ity.

Ease of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion

English is widely spo­ken across the coun­try. Malaysia ranks num­ber 1 among non-na­tive speak­ing Asian coun­tries in the English Pro­fi­ciency In­dex Coun­try Rank­ings.
