ICOBM 2014 Report: Dinner, Tour & Press
A successful conference will not be completed without a memorable dinner event. For ICOBM-2014, Three Sixty° Revolving Restaurant and Sky Bar @ Bayview Hotel was selected as the official dinner venue. As the one and only revolving restaurant and the first roof top bar in Penang, this revolving restaurant provided our participants with a panoramic 360º-rotating view of Georgetown and its surrounding coasts, while dining and/or chilling out at terrace.
A post-conference tour was also organized; the UNESCO Georgetown Heritage Tour, where participants visited and toured the UNESCO heritage area, a Penang Batik factory, various religious places, chocolate boutique & factory, jetty communities and Universiti Sains Malaysia, before satisfying the taste buds via a visit to the food trail of local street foods.
The event was also reported by local press and has appeared in local newspapers. It is hoped that this will enhance the public’s awareness and interest in science, and the continuous efforts of academicians and industries in harnessing potentials from microorganisms for the benefits of mankind.
