MMC Group successfully organised a Familiarisation Visit to Senai Airport City Sdn Bhd (SAC) and Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas Sdn Bhd (PTP), for members of the media based in Kuala Lumpur and the southern region.

The media delegation consisted 19 journalists and photographers from various media organisations such as TV3, RTM, The Edge, Focus Malaysia, New Straits Times, The Star, The Sun Daily, The Malaysian Reserve, Utusan Malaysia, Kosmo, Bernama, Nanyang Siang Pau and Sin Chew Daily.

The visit proved to be a good platform to strengthen MMC Group’s relationship with the media and promote the company as a premier utilities and infrastructure group with diversified business portfolios.

The trip began with a visit to SAC in Senai. Upon arrival, the delegates were received by Mr Gan Seng Keong, General Manager of Group Property, along with his team. Mr Gan started with a briefing session to introduce SAC as a reputable master developer in Johor that provides infrastructure and facilities for high-value added industries. Following the briefing session was a short tour to the I-Park industrial area.

Members of the media later headed to PTP, Malaysia’s most advanced container terminal in Gelang Patah, to learn more about the ports and logistics industry and latest developments at PTP. The PTP briefing session was led by Mr Marco Neelsen, Chief Executive Officer of PTP, accompanied by PTP senior management. The briefing session ended with a Q&A session, before the delegation were taken for a comprehensive port tour which included a boat ride to the terminal and free zone areas along Sungai Pulai.

The media visits to SAC and PTP were part of MMC Group's stakeholder engagement session. Besides increasing the company’s brand position and garnering positive media coverage, the event also provided the media with interesting experiences and encouraged them to learn more about MMC and its operating companies.
