The annual Malaysian Media Conference, or MMC, has now been postponed to October 23 as the industry scrambles to find its footing since the announcement of the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) extension last month.
The landmark event is now in its 14th year and serves as a check-point for industry professionals to come up to speed on what’s the state of the nation when to comes to all things media in marketing communications.
“We are all off to staggered starts since RMCO and I felt that we should give more time for the industry to settle down, and decided to push the event by another month,” comments Prof Harmandar Singh aka Ham who, with MARKETING magazine, has been organising this event for almost one and half decades.
“Our registration numbers have also been down and I hope that industry players who wish to see us make this happen will support us by sending two or thee pax. The registration fees are 100% HRDF-Claimable and it is the only event of its kind in our industry,” says Ham, who spends most his waking hours tirelessly publishing the WEEKENDER which enlightens the industry for free every Friday.
The full-day Conference on October 23 showcases 20 speakers and panelists and will be held at the Sime Darby Convention, which adheres to the highest COVID-19 protocol standards*.
* Ham himself is an ExCo member of MERCY Malaysia and has been active since the virus hit Malaysia in late January. “Permit me to thank some truly amazing companies and individuals from our industry who stepped up to support us in our fight against COVID-19. You know who you are, and you have my utmost respect,” adds Ham.
