DMC Destination Asia Malaysia shared itinerary highlights with micenet as Malaysia was “somewhere new for many participants”.
Based at Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur, delegates attended a conference on the first day, while children and teenagers’ activities were held at Superpark, Avenue K and Berjaya Times Square Theme Park. Spouses had a special cooking class and shopping at Pavilion Shopping Mall.
Dinner was at a traditional Indochinese-cuisine restaurant surrounded by natural beauty that felt far from the city. However, the menu was distinctly Malaysian, with pop-up stalls, cultural activities and dance performance, plus a photobooth.
Day two had only a half-day meeting and dinner at a new flagship restaurant at Bamboo Hills with chargrilled dishes served amid a Batman theme.
The next day’s heritage walking tour saw the group taking in the Royal Selangor Club, Independence Square, the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, River of Life, Central Market, the exterior of the Maha Mariamman Temple, Guan Di Temple and Chinatown, tasting local delicacies along the way and tucking into a Peranakan lunch.
Optional activities on day four included an “Ultimate Foodie” tour, visit to Sentosa Villa in Janda Baik with cultural activities, or golf at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club. The closing gala dinner at an exclusive and classy restaurant in Petronas Twin Towers featured entertainment by a jazz band and a comedian.
A major challenge was the gala dinner being on a public holiday in Malaysia, but the team’s close collaboration with Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau, which facilitated the program, and the venue, made the challenge imperceptible to guests.
Destination Asia Malaysia attributed the incentive trip’s success to the strong team managing and coordinating the event, including multilinguists offering support where required.
“Team members showed passion in delivering service to keep both the client and participants happy. It was great to see attendees’ enthusiastic participation in group activities and having such a fantastic time bonding together,” said the DMC.
