This event today in Shangrila KL was to appreciate the work of some individuals who were named as ‘Kesatrias’ [warriors] for successfully bidding and hosting international conferences in Malaysia. Besides prominent individuals who were celebrated today, many others including me were invited as we all have contributed to some extent in organising conferences in Malaysia. We are looking forward for many more international conferences in Malaysia as we have proven to be a great venue for meetings.
