15 September 2020, Kuala Lumpur – Leading local event organiser, Above Creative Events (M) Sdn. Bhd. (ACE or the Company) celebrated a major milestone in their illustrious business history with the recognition by the Malaysia Book of Records for having organised the ‘Most Number of Virtual Annual General Meetings in a Month’, in the month of June 2020.
ACE overcame business challenges and setbacks following the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic and Movement Control Order (MCO), to help public listed companies deliver on their annual responsibility of organising their respective Annual General Meetings (AGMs).
“It was especially challenging for events. Many had to be cancelled and many more were postponed. The pandemic created a lot of fear and negativity, which impacted the country’s economy. However, we took this as a challenge and pivoted our event management services, and moved quickly from physical to virtual events,” said Nicklas Ng, Project Director of ACE.
ACE went on to become the event organiser for 67 virtual AGMs in Malaysia. ACE achieved several firsts, amongst which was Ranhill Holdings Berhad first Virtual AGM on 21 April 2020. To date, they continue to receive encouraging response to their virtual events. Amongst the notable brands ACE has organised virtual events for are: EcoWorld International Berhad, Nestle Berhad, Petronas Berhad, SP Setia, to name a few. A detailed list of the AGMs is attached in the Appendix.
“We organised 67 Virtual AGMs (not including Virtual Extraordinary General Meetings, Virtual Conferences, workshops, launch and awards events, etc) within the month of June 2020. I believe with this record, it will bring more encouragement to the industry people, and bring Malaysia’s event industry to a global standard. With the exposure of our virtual event services, we hope to elevate the local event industry and bring it to the next level by promoting our services to other countries such that it will benefit more people, at the same time, elevate innovation and put Malaysia on the global map!” Nicklas concluded.
