Message from the President

Greetings to all!

Since its establishment in 2005, AFECA has continued to become the leading association for the Asian exhibition and meeting market. Starting out with 6 members, AFECA in just a decade has expanded to more than 130 members across the entire Asia-Pacific region with a membership roll that includes Australia, Bahrain, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. AFECA’s main goal of is to become the premier MICE association in Asia, as well as the foremost communication platform for all within the industry.

This website was launched in Fall 2016, bringing the tightly knit Asian community together as one, and collectively promoting Asia as a top destination for MICE events. Inside includes information on our individual members, as well as all of Asia. With top notch facilities, Asia is the next major growth region in the world, and this AFECA website will bring you one step closer toward reaching all this untapped potential and talent.

I offer my gratitude to former President Edward Liu and founding President Dilys Yong for building the fortune of AFECA. I also look forward to everyone utilizing this new website as we reach for new heights and make Asia the best in the world.

I wish everyone great health and prosperity!
