Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) launched the "Meet in Macau" corporate networking lunch and mini mart in Malaysia and Singapore last week to arouse local MICE planners' interest to boost more business into Macau.

A delegation of 20 business tourism officials and trade representatives from Macau presented the latest MICE development and stimulation plans of the city to over 80 and 110 local corporate and trade representatives at the corporate networking lunch, followed by a seminar and mini mart held in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore respectively on July 20 and 22.  This is the fourth consecutive year MGTO organized the annual event to promote Macau's MICE business in Malaysia and Singapore. 

The promotional activities of MGTO held in the two markets aim to network and update key MICE planners, travel agents, corporate clients and airline partners about the latest tourism developments and incentive programmes in Macau, while encouraging more international companies to choose the Macau as their desired MICE destinations in Asia.

Mr. Licénio da Cunha, Head of Product and Special Projects Department of MGTO, in his opening remarks at the corporate networking lunch in Kuala Lumpur said, "Macau has developed itself into an increasingly popular destination for companies and corporations worldwide, as an ideal location to stage important meetings, rewarding incentive programmes, large conferences and public exhibitions."

He further expressed that Macau does not just provide for holiday makers and vacationers, but also for the professional and executive crowd, "Macau will enchant and surprise everyone with its grand array of hotels, venues and facilities that make it a convenient, affordable and wondrous destination for corporate parties and events."

Feedback from both guests and Macau trade partners indicated that the event was both useful and informative. The MGTO representative office in Malaysia and Singapore also had an influx of enquiries from meeting planners after the event.

On the occasion, an outdoor campaign named "Macau – The Right Mix of Business & Leisure" was launched at the Raffles Place Park by the MGTO Representative Office in Singapore from July 19 to 22, to echo with the "Meet in Macau" session.  Attention-grabbing images were displayed at the lawn area while information flyers about "MICE in Macau" were distributed, with an attached survey coupon for readers to complete in exchange for a Macau souvenir.
