New journal to spotlight the impact of business events legacies


Curtin University and Business Events Sarawak (BESarawak) have signed a Memorandum of Agreement to research business events and their legacies.

The International Journal of Business Events and Legacies will address issues on business events and legacies featuring strategies, case studies and viewpoints in which the industry’s capabilities on event planning and delivery are highlighted.

“Business events are rich in many ways and we want the journal to reflect that wealth,’ said BESarawak’s CEO, Amelia Roziman.

“Association and incentive events are superb economic drivers that deliver cutting-edge knowledge, solutions and innovation to drive social, sectoral, environmental and political developments.”

Currently, there are 44 members from international associations across 15 countries who will share their resources in the making of the journal including Malaysia, Singapore, UK, Italy, France, Spain, Australia, China, USA, Oman, Libya, Serbia, Iran, Greece and Switzerland. International collaboration is expected to increase in the future.

Meanwhile, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Sarawak and the Sarawak Research Society signed a MOU respectively as strategic partners to expand the journal’s reach and visibility across multiple professional networks.

BESarawak will also sign an MOU with the International Convention & Congress Association (ICCA) at IMEX Frankfurt this year.

“Global partnerships with ICCA and similar associations will give the journal added international recognition,” Roziman said.
