Convention Listing Services
The Sarawak Convention Bureau can assist you in promoting and marketing your convention. Our objective is to help you attract more delegates. Effective promotion can also help secure increased sponsorship opportunities.
Delegate-Boosting Marketing Subsidy
If you provide details of your forthcoming convention by completing and returning the event-listing form, you may be eligible for our Delegate-Boosting Marketing Subsidy of up to RM 5,000 per convention.
On-going Event Promotion
Details of forthcoming conventions are published in our official Calendar of Events, which is promoted on our website and provided to local and international media for the purpose of generating additional publicity. The calendar is also provided to relevant government agencies, industry organisations and other interest groups.
Choosing Dates To Attract Delegates
When choosing the dates for your convention, it is essential to check what other events are taking place around that time to avoid conflict with similar events.
It can often be advantageous to schedule your event close to a festival or local public event, in order to encourage delegates to attend and extend their stay. However it is important to check flight and room availability if the adjacent festival or event is popular with overseas and out-of-town visitors.
Sharing Data & Information Resources
Access to accurate data on confirmed meetings is important for our on-going research and statistical purposes. And it is equally important for the successful planning and promotion of your event. We will gladly share our data resources and contact network with you, and in return we would like to ask you to share your event data with us.
The reason for this is simple. The State Government of Sarawak is investing millions of ringgit in improved convention infrastructure and it is important that we are able to measure and report on the economic impact of our convention industry. Data on visiting delegates is also required in assisting future planning and to help potential investors and developers gain a greater understanding on the state of the market.
We look forward to working with you in making your convention a success, and thank you for sharing information on your forthcoming events.
