Where on Earth is Sibu?

Sibu’s depth and character as a business events city make it one of the best cities in Sarawak to organise and executive business events, especially in the areas of freight transportation, shipping, shipbuilding and timber sector. The city’s global reputation in these sectors have resulted in various investment opportunities for associations and trade bodies.

With a population of over 163,000 residents, community values are important here. Historical sites, museums and landmarks are well-preserved; a reflection of how significant the past is to the people’s progress today. The city is also famed for its annual Sibu International BASE Jumping event that turns Sibu into a city of adventure.
