KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 30 (Bernama) -- The 10th Anak Sarawak Awards, dedicated to the business events industry, is calling for submissions from business event planners from Malaysia and overseas who have organised events in Sarawak, registered business event partners and national and international media.
The closing date for registration and submission of entries is Oct 31, 2022.
To be held on Nov 29, 2022, the awards ceremony is held in conjunction with Business Events Sarawak’s (BESarawak) annual signature convention, Business Events Tribal Meet (TriBE Assembly) in Kuching, Sarawak, BESarawak said in a statement today.
The famed Anak Sarawak Awards will be themed ‘Reawakening the Spirit in the Rainforest’, symbolising the resurgence of business events and the courage of Sarawak’s industry partners to show determination and leadership after a particularly tough two years.
Outstanding achievements and notable contributions to the industry will be recognised through five categories, namely Young Leader Award, Business Events Award, Outstanding Achievement Award, Journalism Award and Sarawak Legacy Award.
“Sarawak Legacy Award is the newest category this year, in recognition of conventions that focus on delivering environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) impacts.
“The introduction of this category marks legacy impact going into full force since Sarawak had officially embarked on the positive and long-term impacts of business events as the industry’s new direction in 2021,” the statement said.
Meanwhile, Sarawak's Minister of Tourism, Creative Industry and Performing Arts, Datuk Seri Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said ever since Sarawak reopened its borders to the world in April, the state has hosted a number of homegrown, national and international business events.
“Stakeholders such as associations and industry partners are the reason behind this incredible revival, and their determination, dedication and readiness to get back on track are thrusting Sarawak further up into the global business events arena,” he said.
BESarawak chief executive officer Amelia Roziman noted that in the last two years, many business event planners and industry partners had to deal with postponements, cancellations and lost business opportunities.
“The themes of TriBE Assembly and Anak Sarawak Awards represent the progress in our industry,” she said, adding that the Sarawak Legacy award would motivate industry contributors to think beyond barriers and become accomplished architects of their future.
Themed ‘Reimagine Our Future’, the TriBE Assembly will see prominent associations, industry players, media and keynote speakers from around the world holding dialogues and knowledge-sharing sessions, focusing on the future of business events.
It is expected to draw a crowd of more than 200 business event leaders from Malaysia, the Asia Pacific and Europe.
