KUCHING, 30 September 2022: Malaysia’s first awards ceremony dedicated to the business events industry—Anak Sarawak Awards—is making a comeback for its 10th edition in conjunction with BESarawak’s annual signature convention, TriBE Assembly, this 29th November 2022 in Kuching, Sarawak.
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 will be announced in five categories: Young Leader Award, Business Events Award, Outstanding Achievement Award, Journalism Award and Sarawak Legacy Award.
Sarawak Legacy Award is the newest category this year to recognise conventions that focus on delivering environmental, social and governance (ESG) impacts. Introducing this category marks legacy impact going into full force since Sarawak officially embarked on the positive and long-term impacts of business events as the industry’s new direction in 2021.
“Since Sarawak reopened to the world in April, a favourable number of homegrown, national and international business events have been hosted throughout the State—a strong sign of revival,” said The Honourable Dato Sri Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah, Sarawak’s Minister of Tourism, Creative Industry and Performing Arts. “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. Award winners will each receive a maximum claimable of RM10,000 to attend any business event in their field of interest anywhere in the world.”
The right education and encouragement are necessary for the industry to continue moving upward and forwards. “The last two years have been about postponements, cancellations and lost business for many business event planners and industry partners,” expressed Amelia Roziman, BESarawak’s CEO. “The themes of TriBE Assembly and Anak Sarawak Awards represent the train of progress that our industry is riding to become what it is today. With the Sarawak Legacy award up for grabs, we hope to motivate industry contributors to think beyond barriers and become accomplished architects of their future.”
Anak Sarawak Awards is supplementary to the main event, Business Events Tribal Meet —commonly known as TriBE Assembly. The convention will be themed ‘Reimagine Our Future’ where dialogues and education sessions will centre around the future of business events from multiple angles featuring prominent associations, industry players, media and keynote speakers from around the world.
TriBE Assembly is expected to draw a crowd of more than 200 business event leaders from Malaysia, Asia Pacific and Europe. Anak Sarawak Awards is open to all business event planners from Malaysia and overseas who have organised events in Sarawak; registered BEPartners and national and international media. Submit your entries by 31 October 2022.
