AFECA names best in Asia's MICE industry at second awards ceremony
The Asian Federation of Exhibition and Convention Associations (AFECA) celebrated its 11th anniversary and held its second AFECA Awards ceremony in Xiamen earlier this month in recognition of the best performers in the industry in Asia.
AFECA board members and advisory council members, including president Walter Yeh, honorary president Dilys Yong and president of Xiamen Convention & Exhibition Association (XMCEA) Zheng Zhi, awarded important members and individuals for their contributions over the past year during the event.
Awards handed out include the Outstanding Trade Exhibition, Outstanding Consumer Exhibition, Outstanding Convention/Congress Award, Outstanding Service Award, the Young Professional Award as well as the Outstanding Venue Award, the first time it is being presented.
“This year marks the 2nd AFECA Awards, and after last year’s success, we received even more interest and nominations this year. All nominees represent excellence and outstanding performance in the Asian MICE industry and showcases how far the industry has advanced over the past years,” said Yeh.
In conjunction, starting this year, winners will be given a symbol of recognition by AFECA. These AFECA Recognized logos – split into AFECA Recognized Event, AFECA Recognized Venue and AFECA Recognized Service Provider categories – is an endorsement of quality, innovation and sustainability of organisers by the association.
