MaTiC, the Malaysia Tourism Centre
27 August 2018 |7.00pm-11.59pm
A much-anticipated event during the Congress, the Cultural Evening brings delegates together for a taste of local food and culture. The event will be a great chance to experience culinary and artistic performances.
The event will be held at MaTiC, the Malaysia Tourism Centre. MaTiC is a one-stop tourist centre for foreign and local tourists. It offers services and facilities such as tourist information counters, mini auditorium, amphitheatre, meeting rooms and event venues.
The Cultural Evening will start at 19:00 – 19:30 with roaming activities in the entire MaTiC complex with pocket cultural shows: Joget (A traditional Malay dance), Lion dance, Kuda Kepang (Horse dance), buskers and stilt walkers.
19:00 – 21:00 The Malaysian Spice Market (Parking area of MaTiC) will feature a concept of cocktail reception that transports participants on a “time travel” back 600 years ago to the era of the Malacca Sultanate where a mock set-up of a thriving spice market ambience is re-enacted complete with “traders” ie. Malaysian delegation (sellers) in traditional costumes.
20:00 – 21:00 There will be cultural performances at three (3) venues: WOWKL Theatre hall, MaTiC Auditorium, and MaTiC Amphitheater.
21:00 – 24:00 There will be more songs and dances at WowKL.
The Congress name badge must be worn to gain entry. Access will not be granted without a proper name badge. There will be opportunities to buy souvenirs at the event.
