The visit also marked Freysen-Pretorius’ first official trip since assuming the position in November 2014. As the guest-of-honour at this year’s edition, Freysen-Pretorius, together with the Centre’s General Manager, Alan Pryor, launched the Professional Development Grant which will provide three young local association executives with the opportunity to attend the 55th ICCA Congress 2016 in Kuching, Sarawak. Freysen-Pretorius was especially delighted for the opportunity to visit Kuala Lumpur given it is the headquarters of ICCA’s Asia-Pacific office. “The Asia-Pacific region is a growing market for business tourism and Malaysia is ideally placed to maximise on the opportunities with her safe and stable political climate, world-class infrastructure and well-established service and hospitality industry.  “With all this in mind, the timing and destination of my first trip as president worked out very well indeed.” “We were honoured to have Nina at this year’s Association Seminar, to share her knowledge and expertise with our local associations,” said Angeline Lue, the Centre’s Director of Sales & Marketing. “We’re confident the information shared on the global meetings industry, international best practices and the future direction will benefit local players keen to host future regional and international congresses linked to their respective association.” Also involved in this year’s interactive dialogue with Freysen-Pretorius was Martin Lewis, Managing Director of CAT Publications Ltd which specialises solely in magazines, directories, live events and web sites for the conference and incentive travel markets. In addition, there were presentations on the ‘Kuala Lumpur Tourism Master Plan 2015 – 2025’ by Kuala Lumpur City Hall’s Head of Tourism Unit, Noraza Yusof, and ‘The Benefits Beyond Tourism’ by Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau’s (MyCEB) Market Research Manager, Manisa Nor. The Association Seminar is a yearly gathering; under the Centre’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) umbrella, that brings together leading Professional Conference Organisers (PCOs), decision-makers of national associations and industry professionals to share knowledge and experience on international best practices in the delivery of successful meetings.
