Organised by the Asia-Pacific Association for Biomechanics (APAB), brought in by The Malaysian Society of Biomechanics (MSB) and supported by various authorities especially MyCEB, APCB is the biggest biomechanics conference to be held in Malaysia. The annual event provides platform to encourage, foster, and promote research in the field of biomechanics in the Asian-Pacific region, and build a community for the industry.
As the second ASEAN country to host APCB, Malaysia is expecting to welcome approximately 800 delegates for the event, with an estimated RM 8.37 million in economic impact.
Datuk Zulkefli also said that Malaysia is excited to bring its multiculturalism to the table when delegates arrive. He continued, “Malaysia has always been unique in the sense of our heritage and culture, forming a charm of our own. Business visitors are sure to gain the experience of various cultures all in one nation, something that has kept our industry alive apart from the country’s facilities when it comes to business events”.
Representing the local organiser, Professor Ir. Dr. Noor Azuan Abu Osman, Chairman of MSB said that, “It will not be easy to organise such a big APCB event, but I will give my own personal assurance that we will make Malaysia proud and will strive to do a great job in organising this event”.
He also commented, “Bringing top-level Biomechanist to Malaysia is not only a great platform for our Malaysian biomechanist to present our work in front of top scientists but also having them coming to this event will help create a very strong legacy in the field of biomechanics in the region”.
