The MOU serves to enhance the collaboration between the Centre and IEEE Malaysia Section, and includes the hosting of IEEE Malaysia Section’s AGMs, attractive meetings packages customised for IEEE and a client incentive fund and bid support to help to attract regional and international conferences. IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organisation dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.

In order to enhance the bids, the Centre is also offering a Conventions Value-Add Programme worth RM100,000 for any regional and international conferences held at the Centre, as well as its Cultural Showcase, which provides a snapshot of the country’s rich and diverse cultural heritage through nine interactive activities.
