AOEMM will be hosting the 24th Asian Congress on Occupational Health 2026

During the 23rd ACOH 2023 in EXCO Daegu, South Korea. The Academy of Occupational and Environmental Medicine Malaysia (AOEMM) send a delegation which was led by the president Dr Abu Hasan to bid for the 26th Asian Congress on Occupational Health 2026. The bid was supported by Business Event Sarawak by Sarawak Convention Bureau and the Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB).

As part of the effort for the bid for ACOH2026, the AOEMM setup a booth to promote the bid. The proposed venue for the ACOH2026 will be at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) in Sarawak. We brought many ‘gifts’ and gimmick for the booth. The highlight was Mr Brooke, the Orang Utan puppet which travelled all the way from Kuching. The booth was manned by our two very capable executives, Ms Hema and Ms Sherry and supported by Donny Tan, Senior Business Development Manager – Conventions and Exhibitions Business Events Sarawak.

The contender for the bid was the Philippines College of Occupational Medicine.

Dr Abu Hasan presented the bid during the meeting of the Asian Association for Occupational and Environmental Health. The other country representative that attended the meeting included India, Indonesia, Japan, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, and Malaysia. During the meeting, AOEMM and Malaysia was selected as the host for the 24th ACOH in 2026.

ACOH 2026 with the theme “Navigating Global Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Occupational Health: Shaping the Future for Sustainability” will be held from 5-8 August 2026 at the Boneo Convention Centre Kuching, Sarawak.
