MIRI: Former Sarawak Convention Bureau Chief Executive Officer Jill Henry was awarded the Darjah Gemilang Bintang Kenyalang Sarawak — Johan Bintang Kenyalang (Honorary) from the state.

The conference of the award was held in a leading resort and spa in Miri.

The award known also as “Order of the Star of Hornbill Sarawak” is specially for foreigners who have rendered exceptional and meritorious service or deeds to the Sarawak, its government and the people.

Jill Henry is indeed no stranger to the people involved in MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) as she has helped Sarawak secure over 180 conferences, bringing in approximately RM202mil in direct delegate expenditure.

Aside from that, she has also helped position Sarawak as a pupular MICE destination while placing Kuching on the world map in International Congress and Convention Association’s (ICCA) Asia Pacific City Ranking for the first time.
