Pacific World (www.pacificworld.com), the integrated global DMC and Event Management organisation has been awarded ‘Best Incentive Programme’ at the Malaysia Business Events Awards for Excellence (rAWr Awards) for the “WINNING TOGETHER” Sales Kick-Off Meeting. This is the second time that the rAWr Awards has shown Pacific World recognition, having awarded them ‘Best Incentive Programme’ in 2013.
Recognising Award Winning Results (rAWr Awards) rewards outstanding achievements in the Meeting, Incentive, Convention and Exhibition (MICE) industry in Malaysia. rAWr Awards are a joint initiative between the Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) and the Malaysian Association of Convention & Exhibition Organisers (MACEOS). Founded in 2013, this bi-annual award presentation is judged by a panel of independent industry experts within Asia.
Selina Chavry, Global Managing Director of Pacific World comments. “For this year’s winning event, Pacific World Malaysia team once again showed what they are capable of by designing both a memorable experience as well as delivering the message “WINNING TOGETHER” at a Sales Kick-Off Meeting, which brought 375 sales and marketing personnel together in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia”.
Catherine Chong, Country Manager, Pacific World Malaysia, commented, “For this event we created the ‘Winning Together Photo Hunt Challenge’ which was an outdoor teambuilding event that pushed teams from various countries to strategise, communicate and motivate each other towards a shared common company goal while exploring the city in a fun and interactive way. Attendees were introduced to the culture and heritage of Malaysia with the chance to experience the festive Chinese New Year.
The ‘Winning Together Photo Hunt Challenge’ also instilled the value of giving back through a CSR activity, which is a key difference from the past teambuilding events. Donations went to a volunteer relief organisation.
In addition to being awarded ‘Best Incentive Programme’ Pacific World also won the “Youth Scholarship Award” which is open to employees or nominees within the business events industry that are 25 years old or younger. Samantha Lau of Pacific World Malaysia is first winner of the Youth Scholarship Award that recognises deserving young talents in the industry.
