With a target of RM5 billion in business leads, the 12th International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition & Conference Malaysia (IGEM 2021) is South East Asia’s largest trade event for green technologies and ecosolutions. It is dubbed the engine for green growth as the world prepares to embrace greener and more sustainable operations by adopting the principles of Economic, Social and Governance (ESG) in all aspects of business operations. Throughout the years, IGEM has successfully generated over RM30 billion in business leads since its launch in 2010. IGEM, to date, has attracted more than 490,000 visitors from over 79 countries.
IGEM 2021 returns with its second virtual edition, held over six months from July to December 2021 and offers new levels of accessibility through exciting integrated features for an enhanced user interface on its platform. There is now more avenues for experts in the green technology field to actively participate in live or recorded conferences. This also makes IGEM 2021 accessible 24/7 by participants across the globe, enabling a more dynamic and efficient exchange of insights and ideas on how the region’s green economies can work together in new partnerships.
This year’s theme of “Redefining Sustainability” underscores Malaysia’s commitment, direction and efforts on climate change and green technology amid addressing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Between July to December 2021, there is a series of dedicated topical events, conferences and activities, featuring prime industry leaders and experts to focus on targeted areas within the sustainability sector every month:
Overall, the Virtual IGEM 2021 is hosting more than 100 conference sessions, webinars and pocket talks, in addition to the signing of Memorandum of Understandings (MoUs). There is also the IGEM Business Week – a dedicated slot held each month that not only fosters a more efficient method of pre-planning meetings but offers more focus and convenience for exhibitors and visitors in scheduling their virtual engagements. The scheduled dates for the IGEM Business Week are 12-16 July, 9- 13 August, 13-17 September, 11- 15 October, 8 12 November and 13-17 December.
As one of IGEM’s long-standing strategic partners, MIDA continues its efforts to attract quality investments into the country and encourage investors to make Malaysia as their preferred investment destination while adopting sustainability elements. MIDA organises a series of pocket talk sessions on green technology investment opportunities in Malaysia. Participants can expect updates on the latest government policies, incentives, facilities and support services available for local as well as foreign investors in the green technology industry. Moreover, there will also be opportunities to directly connect with MIDA via live chat and video conference (VC) until 31 December 2021.
All organisations and green entrepreneurs are encouraged to sign up and come together in redefining sustainability to rebuild a more resilient and greener postpandemic economy, in line with the shared prosperity initiative of the newly announced Twelfth Malaysian Plan (12MP).
