Developed by Desaru Development Holdings One Sdn. Bhd., Desaru Coast promises something for everyone from business to leisure travelers.
“The move for Desaru Coast Conference Centre to join ICCA membership is part of the destination’s efforts to position the venue as a MICE destination to the global market. We want to provide business travelers the opportunity to attend conferences and exhibitions amidst a beach yet being just 30-45 minutes away from the city’s hub,” said Muhammad Zainal Ashikin, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Desaru Development Holdings One Sdn.
