Indonesia passes the baton to Malaysia for Enlit Asia 2024

Malaysia has set the stage for the next instalment of Clarion’s Enlit Asia which is slated to be held from 8-10 October 2024 in its capital city of Kuala Lumpur. Supported by Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB), Enlit Asia 2024 is expected to draw 12,000 visitors from more than 50 countries, generating an estimated economic impact of RM134.6m (US$28.8m) and RM8.2m in visitor expenditure. The handover ceremony was officially held in Indonesia Convention Exhibition (ICE), BSD City, Jakarta, 14 November.

“We are honoured to be the next destination for Enlit Asia and excited at the opportunity to host a world-class event that will bring together the brightest of minds in the power and energy sector,” said Mr. Zain Azrai Rashid, acting CEO of MyCEB.

Enlit Asia is an annual conference that unifies two influential events in the power and energy sector, POWERGEN Asia and Asian Utility Week.

“We are thrilled to bring Enlit Asia 2024 to the vibrant landscape of Malaysia, where innovation converges with tradition. This event promises to illuminate new pathways in the energy sector, showcasing Malaysia's commitment to a sustainable and dynamic future power system,” said Simon Hoare, event director, Enlit Asia.

The transition also symbolises the successful ongoing collaboration and synergy between Malaysia and Indonesia in the field of business events. Apart from the handover ceremony, MyCEB’s visit to Jakarta is a follow-up from last year’s trip to strengthen the bilateral relation between the two countries in business events.

“Last year's impactful results demonstrate the strength of our regional collaboration. We value our neighbours and their shared lessons,” Zain noted.
