Organising Chairman's Message

Dear colleagues and esteemed guests,

Selamat datang!

It gives me great pleasure and pride to invite you all to our 29th Malaysian Urological Conference in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah from 26th to 28th November 2020. We are excited to have you all come over to the majestic beauty of the Land Below the Wind, Sabah in Borneo. For the first time in it’s history, we are conducting our annual conference on the shores of Sabah, at Marriott Hotel Kota Kinabalu.

The theme of “ Bridging the Gap, Scaling the Heights” aims to highlight the different practices that we as urologists adopt from various parts of the world, in different economical and infrastructural settings when dealing with the same problem.  As the old adage says, one size shoe does not fit them all, the challenges that we urologists face and how we adapt to the ever fast-paced changing technology remain a conundrum. Thus, using this platform, we hope to bring together experts from all over the world as well as within our South Asia region to share their views and ideas in addressing these issues. This 3-day conference promises to be more inclusive of other urological topics. There will be Masterclasses, interactive discussions, platforms for young urology trainees to present at the main conference itself, nursing workshops and talks and many more.

Whilst in Sabah, extend your stay and enjoy the beautiful views of the majestic Mount Kinabalu, loose yourselves to the wonders of the Kinabatangan National Park, dive with turtles in Sipadan Island or snorkel with the fish at the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. Enjoy the sights and sounds at the local Gaya Street Market and try different fresh seafood dinners at the various seafood restaurants lined all over Kota Kinabalu city.

Kota Kinabalu is an excellent hub for connectivity with many flights direct from Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Korea and Taiwan. With Malaysia hosting Visit Malaysia 2020, what better opportunity to visit us if not now? Book your spots early and don’t miss out on an opportunity of a lifetime… A fantastic working holiday for you (and the family).

Come and join us and enjoy the local sights and sounds as well as the local hospitality. Sabahans are known to go out of their way to make you feel at home. I look forward to seeing each and every one of you in Sabah.

‘Boleh bah kalo kau’

See you in Sabah!
