“Penang holds great promise as a preferred destination for tourism and various business events activities.”

The PITE 2021 Digital Show’s programme will incorporate key components such as business matching between buyers and exhibitors, as well as creating an extensive marketplace for the travel and business events industries to welcome back future international businesses into Penang and Malaysia within the next few years.

Other parts of the programme include virtual networking sessions and some education sessions, all taking place virtually in a simulated exhibition centre. The show will have more than 100 buyers, with 40 exhibitors from Penang and throughout Malaysia.

“As we start to prepare for the possibility of international travel soon, it is important for us to proceed with our existing marketing efforts, while still revolving around the message of safety and security in travel and in organising events,” said Ashwin Gunasekeran, CEO of PCEB during his speech.

“Penang holds great promise as a preferred destination for tourism and various business events activities especially for the European market, namely ones from Corporate Companies, Travel agents, Incentive/ Motivation Houses, Meeting Planners as well as Associations,” he shared.
