The concurrent sessions were so interesting that we had a hard time choosing which ones to attend. We went home feeling relieved knowing that accountants can actually have control over fintech, provided we start to embrace the change now. Wishing you all a continuous success!

This was my first accountants’ Conference and it was a great experience. The syllabus was especially commendable, with most of it revolving around digitalisation rather than the usual accounting and auditing standards. I also enjoyed the exclusivity of the Premier Lounge.
While it was a positive experience overall, there were some points for improvement in future: swifter rectification of the technical glitches on the slides and screens, selection of professional announcers or Toastmasters members as moderators to add liveliness to the discussions, and inclusivity of topics on youth and the younger generation in the profession to appeal to younger accountants.

Due to work commitments, I have never managed to attend the MIA Conference. This year upon my colleagues’ urging, I decided to attend. My first-ever MIA Conference was a pleasant surprise - it was very well organised and I did not expect so many participants! The booths were great, the venue was great, the app was excellent, and the different sessions were relevant and apt for the present challenges.
I especially liked the sessions moderated by the BFM radio announcers; that was a plus point. Syabas!

The Conference featured a very enriching 2-day programme presented by talented and distinguished speakers of varied industries and backgrounds, both local and foreign. The programmes’ content covered relevant and pertinent areas of concern faced by accountants, in bracing for the transformation and diversity in the digital landscape and technologies impacting the business and accounting environment. The Conference also provided an excellent platform for information sharing and networking among participants of similar industries, disciplines and practices to enhance their knowledge, in order to add value to their services to customers and employers.

Attending the MIA Conference was a professionally rewarding experience as I was able to socialise with like-minded colleagues. The experience was valuable, inspiring and made me aware of what the future would be like for accountants. Even the hallway conversations were quite interesting as delegates came from almost everywhere. Totally and extremely worth it.

The sessions were good, very informative and happening. Perhaps future Conferences could include more topics on audit.

Overall, the Conference was an exciting experience and I had the chance to connect with friends from different industries and experiences. The Conference topics were relevant to the current issues and highlighted the current economic conditions in the country and around the world. I loved the entertainment on the second day during lunch and the last session - Oh My English - was fun to watch.
I hope that MIA will continue organising great conferences in the future. I would love to come again if given the opportunity.

As usual, the MIA Conference is a yearly awaited event. It is an amazing event as we are able to meet fellow accountants from all over Malaysia - getting to know each other and exchanging views.
The MIA Conference is also a sharing session with great speakers, which allows the delegates to increase their knowledge. Topics discussed are up-to-date and in line with the current developments.
I'm truly ecstatic this year not only because I had the opportunity to attend the MIA Conference 2018 but I was the luckiest delegate and won the grand prize in the Lucky Draw - a return flight ticket to Tokyo, Japan. Thank you to MIA!
Senior Manager Finance Ahmad Zaki Resources Berhad
This was my third year attending the MIA conference and I am very grateful to my boss and company for sponsoring me.
This Conference was excellent because I can update myself on accounting issues and standards. I appreciated this year’s focus on robotics adoption in recording and managing data in digital wave, as coincidentally, my company just invested millions in a new ERP system. The sessions provided exposure on the challenges faced as well as the drawbacks and solutions in optimising the utilisation of robotics to manage accounting data. Furthermore, I can meet and listen to amazing panel speakers and network with other accountants.
The Conference was fruitful as it provided much information and entertainment. I look forward to attending this conference every year.
