This joint effort reflects the venue's and exhibition organiser's commitment to leading Malaysia's both the exhibition and food and beverages (F&B) sectors towards a sustainable future. The partnership, originating from the Centre and MIFB's dedication to advocating sustainable practices, aims to inspire and transform the exhibition sector and its supply chain. MIFB, a leading F&B trade show, serves as the perfect platform to unite the industry towards promoting humane and sustainable consumption.

Hellen Woon, MIFB Event Director, stated, "I believe leading trade shows like MIFB are the right platforms to bring together the industry in not just promoting green events but also advocating for responsible consumption. Business events should not just be about hosting a successful trade show but also ensuring lasting impact as a key outcome. We are delighted that the Centre, Traders Hotel and Impiana KLCC Hotel are on-board to transition towards cage-free eggs, reflecting our hospitality and events industries' commitment towards ethical business practices."

She added, "84% of Malaysians surveyed by the Humane Society International agree that the welfare of farmed animals is important and most prefer to purchase cage-free eggs. The industry players are working to meet consumer demand. This also translates to consumer behaviour in other aspects of life including when they attend business events or dine at restaurants."

John Burke, General Manager of the Centre, said, "We are thrilled to collaborate with a partner who is passionate and committed towards responsible consumption. Working together is essential for promoting sustainability within our industry and our collaboration with MIFB signifies that Malaysia's business events sector is on the right track. We encourage all our other hotel and business events partners to join us in this transition, and we hope that more F&B players will also follow suit. We believe increased demand will drive greater supply and contribute to a more sustainable future for all."
