Besides taking on roles as PPV centres.
At the same time, MyCEB has teamed up with industry players to identify and nominate representatives as volunteers from each of organisation per state under Business Events and Tourism Industry for this programme. Over 200 BE practitioners had volunteered their time as BE Stewards to ensure the smooth-running of the vaccination programmes at various PPVs.
Among the PPVs for the BE Stewards Programme are the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Center (MITEC), Setia City Convention Centre, Shah Alam Convention Centre, Austin International Convention Centre (Johor), Borneo Convention Centre Kuching, Sabah International Convention Centre, Langkawi International Convention Centre, and Setia Spice Convention Centre (Penang) and many others.
The implementation is planned to help revive the tourism industry that has been severely affected by the pandemic outbreak. This commitment can be a catalyst for the country’s tourism industry to bounce back, in turn assisting the country in accelerating the recovery phase economy in line with the National Recovery Plan.
