MICE Unveiled: Exploring the Vibrant World of Convention Centre Jobs and Beyond

In the dynamic realms of tourism, hospitality, and events, the acronym MICE resonates widely, symbolizing a burgeoning market centered around event organisation. MICE encapsulates not only the intricacies of event planning but also encompasses the broader spheres of travel and tourism. The diverse landscape of convention centre jobs spans various levels and hospitality sectors, including meeting and event planning, food and beverage service, maintenance, and property management. Similar to other roles in the hospitality sector, convention centre positions demand a versatile skill set and a proactive, adaptable mindset to navigate the ever-changing nature of the industry.

While the challenges are inherent, they contribute to a lively and dynamic work environment where no two days are alike. Students engaging in convention centre jobs are thrust into a melting pot of professions, hobbies, and interests, rubbing shoulders with world-class business leaders, thought influencers, celebrities, and even Comic Con enthusiasts. While convention centre roles may not adhere to the predictability of a 9-5 desk job, they offer excitement, variety, and an unexpected array of career paths and opportunities.

Understanding the nuances of this captivating industry, the School of Hospitality and Tourism at SEGi took the initiative on January 30, 2024, to embark on a visit to explore the newest and largest convention centre. This immersive experience provided students with an in-depth understanding of the multifunctional world-class facilities and modern structural designs. Industry trips like these serve as the initial point of interaction for students with the dynamic hospitality landscape, offering insights into convention centre operations and Business Events (BE). The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Malaysia’s premier award-winning venue, became the focal point of exploration during this visit, proudly owned by KLCC (Holdings) Sdn Bhd, a PETRONAS subsidiary, and managed by Convex Malaysia Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between KLCC (Holdings) Sdn Bhd and ASM Global.

While participation in this visit is voluntary, students are encouraged to seize the opportunity to gain practical insights into industry operations and immerse themselves in real-world scenarios. Beyond the educational aspect, such visits offer students a welcomed respite from routine classes, allowing them to engage, have fun, and foster their learning. Here’s to empowering the next wave of industry professionals!”
