Penang Convention & Exhibition Bureau (PCEB) introduced its business events support programme – Privilege Penang at the Penang Networking Dinner in conjunction with IMEX Frankfurt.
Curated to cater to Business Events Penang’s key markets, Privilege Penang has two exclusive support programmes – Meetings & Conferences and Incentives, which aims to further entice organisers to host their business events in Penang.
The Privilege Penang support programme introduces various tiers of benefits that is suited depending on the different number of delegates for the event. Ranging from hosting welcome receptions and welcoming luncheons with Penang’s famed delicacies and souvenirs to half-day guided tours and cultural performances, Privilege Penang’s support packages are worth up to €20,000 for events hosted in Penang.
“Privilege Penang provides attractive and competitive supports the bureau is able to extend to planners. Penang has been performing well in recent years, and we are confident that the attractiveness of Penang as a destination, its competitive cost of hosting events and wide array of facilities will continue to pull in events. Privilege Penang is a commitment from the state to develop the Business Events sector in Penang,” said Ashwin Gunasekeran, CEO of PCEB.
To add greater value to Privilege Penang, PCEB has collaborated with its strategic airline partner – Malaysia Airlines. Qualifying events can enjoy benefits such as having Malaysia Airlines as the official airline for their events, discount rates for site inspection trips, hosting of speakers and hosted buyers, special rates for Malaysia Airlines’ inflight advertising platform and much more.
Penang successfully hosted over 200 international meetings with 106,265 delegates from across the globe in 2018. With a convention capacity of 30,000 and 14,389 rated hotel rooms, Penang is among the leading destinations in the region for corporate meetings & incentives and a rising association meetings destination.
