The Sabah Nite 2012 which aims to foster friendship, business networking and promote tourism and culture, as well as honour top achievers from Sabah in the Klang Valley, will be held in Shah Alam next month.
What started as an idea less than two weeks ago has now become a certainty, with preparations going at full steam to get the event going on March 17 at the Selangor Youth and Culture Complex in Section 7, Shah Alam.
The gala night — with the popular Sabah catchphrase “Ini Kali Lah” (This Is It) as the tagline — is the brainchild of two Sabah businesswomen based here, Marilyn Mona Pamajah and Kartini Ibrahim, who are spearheading the organising committee.
They told Bernama that the event, to be held in collaboration with the Sabah Liaison Office here, targeted 1,500 people.
“We can accommodate up to 1,800, depending on the response,” said Kartini, the managing director of TechnoTrend Global, an event management and training provider.
“Through this event, we aim to provide a platform for Sabahans, particularly those in the Klang Valley, to get together and for corporate leaders in Sabah and their counterparts here to network with one another,” she said.
Top achievers who have carved a name for themselves in the corporate world here, as well as students who excel in their studies will also be honoured at the event. “We are identitying the candidates,” said Marilyn Mona, a partner at Berembang Akuakultur Sdn Bhd.
On the networking for businessmen, she said, the event would provide an excellent platform for businessmen in the peninsular and those from Sabah to establish contacts.
The event will also feature performances by artistes from Sabah such as the Akademi Fantasia alumni Noni, Ebi, Yaser, Ekin and Felix. The organising committee is currently negotiating with several more Sabah artistes to perform during the event which will also feature cultural performances as interludes.
Tickets are priced from RM100. More information can be obtained from Kartini at 018-9188030, Marilyn Mona at 016-2398484 and the Sabah Liaison Office at 03-92851372.
