The Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) today announced that Malaysia will be the proud host of the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) Experience in 2014. It is scheduled to be held from 13-15 February at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) with the objective of bringing MDRT’s Annual Meeting experience to producers in other countries.
Modelled after MDRT’s world renowned Annual Meeting, the MDRT Experience delivers innovative sales technique and ideas, technical information and motivational concepts for those in the life insurance and financial services business. The MDRT Experience is open to both MDRT members and non-members.
Founded in 1927 and also known as The Premiere Association of Financial Professionals, MDRT consists of nearly 36,000 of the world’s leading life insurance and financial services professionals. As 64 per cent of its members are based in the Asia Pacific, the MDRT Experience has been held in several Asian cities including Bangkok (2006), Chiba (2008), Seoul (2010) and Singapore (2011) as an effort to increase its membership and brand awareness in the world’s largest and fastest growing economic regions.
“This is the first time that the meeting is being hosted in Malaysia,” said Mr. Zulkefli Hj. Sharif, Chief Executive Officer of MyCEB. “We are expecting to welcome approximately 5,000 attendees from 20 countries worldwide to Malaysia in 2014. This event is estimated to generate close to RM50 million in economic impact to the country and RM 30 million on visitors’ expenditures which will highly benefit Malaysia’s economy,” he continued.
From past events, the MDRT Experience offers approximately 100 speakers during its motivational Main Platform presentations, education focus sessions and insightful breakfast and evening sessions. Participants are also presented with an opportunity to network with other top financial services professionals from around the world.
