The launch of Hospitality Entertainment Solution was held in conjunction with TM SME BizFest 2013’s Klang Valley stop at Sunway Convention Centre, Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Held for the second year running, the SME-specific event with this year’s theme of ‘Expanding Further’, is targeted at the mass SME market comprising Micro and Small markets including those operating businesses from home.

Among the highlights of the event were business networking sessions, seminars by business icons and a wide range of ICT solutions on exhibitions by TM and its business partners. SMEs will be able to empower their businesses through knowledge sharing and acquisition while also interacting and establishing networks among themselves and TM at the event.

Known as BizSpotz sessions, participants were invited to attend seminars which feature successful business icons who shared and imparted their journey and views in the business world. Among the business icons appeared at the knowledge sharing sessions were Giulio Xiloyannis, Marketing Director, Zalora Malaysia; Datuk Wira Dr. Haji Ameer Ali Mydin, Managing Director, Mydin Mohamed Holdings Berhad; Azizan Afandi Head, Planning and Coordination Secretariat Department, Broadband Management Division, Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC); and Kenny Hoo, Founder & Chief Researcher, Good Feng Shui.

We have a comprehensive suite of more than 40 innovative products and services designed to increase SMEs productivity and efficiencies. We would like for SMEs to know that; from basic telephony services to advanced ICT innovations, they can always count on TM to be their reliable business partner. This is also evident through the launch of TM’s latest solution for buildings with high tenancies, the Hospitality Entertainment Solution, which comes not long after the launch of our HyppTV for Business solution,” added Azizi.
