2018 Worldwide Meeting

We are thrilled to announce that our Annual Meeting for 2018 will be held in Penang, Malaysia, March 20th – 23rd! We are very much looking forward to sharing this amazing and beautiful location with you.

One of the very best benefits of the network is our Annual Meetings, where we can all come to one place, at one time, and meet our partners from all over the world.

Our meeting Co-sponsor this year is Mr. Ismail Rasyid of PT TRANS CONTINENT. As our Gold Sponsor, they not only raise the profile of PT TRANS CONTINENT, but they make a difference in what you end up paying for your meeting registration. Along with our other sponsors, SEABRIDGE GLOBAL LOGISTICS, who is our lanyard sponsor, I hope you take the opportunity to thank these special members for what they’ve done for you.

Penang is a very special destination. We highly recommend you use the following links to find out more about it and to answer any questions you may have about weather, currency, electrical, customs, et al.

Meeting Format

Our meeting officially starts off with our welcome cocktail reception, on Tuesday, March 20th at 7:30pm. This cocktail reception is for members, their guests and spouses. There will be some welcoming remarks and it will feature light snacks, a full bar, soft drinks and water.

Our formal meetings begin at 9am for the next three days, with presentations and free flowing coffee and tea throughout the day.

ONE on ONE sessions will start at 10:30am, and will continue until 12:00pm, at which time we will break for lunch. ONE on ONE sessions will resume at 1pm and continue until 5pm each day. Lunch is included each day as part of your meeting package.

As with last year, we will continue our policy of members issuing Penalty Cards for members who do not attend their scheduled ONE on ONE meetings. We will share these names with the entire group.

ONE on ONE meetings will be scheduled using our in house scheduling software. In scheduling ONE on ONE meetings, keep in mind the sooner you register for the meeting, the more options you will have to schedule meetings and for others to schedule with you.

ONE on ONE meetings are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis. Once again, and we hear this every year, for those who wait to the last minute to register, the ONE on ONE Meeting slots of those you might want to meet with can be filled up, with no openings. Register for the meeting as soon and as early as possible.

We highly recommend you consider bringing at least two representatives from your company to cover that many more ONE on ONE meetings. We offer a discounted registration rate for additional company members to attend.

SUGGESTED DRESS CODE: For meetings it is suggested you dress business casual. Please no T-shirts in the meeting rooms, but do dress comfortably.

New Member Orientation

This is for new members only. If you have never been to a Globalink Worldwide Meeting, or if you are a new member, having joined our group since the last meeting, we highly encourage you to attend our NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION. These are well attended. In the orientation we get a chance to meet each other, and get to know one another before the opening cocktail party. We also go over a few of the basics as to how Globalink works and how to maximize the return on your Globalink investment.

The NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION will take place our first day before our opening cocktail party. Please check THE AGENDA for times and location.

The Gala Dinner

Our GALA DINNER is scheduled to open with a cocktail party at 7:30pm, on Thursday, March 22. This includes the cocktail party, a full dinner and professional entertainment, and is another great opportunity to get to know your partners in a fun setting.

The GALA DINNER will also be an informal event and will be loads of fun.
