Anam, Proud Host of WAS#9

8-11 April. Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre

Anam is delighted to be selected by GSMA’s WAS leadership to host the prestigious WAS#9 event in Malaysia next April.

Anam set up its Asia headquarters in Kuala Lumpur in 2015 and we are really looking forward to welcoming WAS delegates to this wonderful corner of South East Asia. Malaysia is a founding member of ASEAN, the 10 state Association of South East Asian Nations as well as a member of the Commonwealth. Positioned just north of the equator the country has land border with Singapore & Indonesia to the south, Thailand to the north and is home to 30 million people. It’s vibrant capital is Kuala Lumpur with a population of almost 3 million.  The country (roughly similar in size to Germany) comprises two similarly sized regions, Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo separated by the South China Sea into and offers a diverse landscape mix of rainforest, mountains, caves and islands and which is home to an estimated 20% of the worlds animal species.  We do hope you enjoy your visit to Malaysia.
