Seizing the opportunity of the night,  the Association leadership highlighted pressing challenges faced by the industry and urged the government to address them. The pressing challenges included short-term rental accommodation, online travel agencies platforms, unfair terms of business operations where only registered & licensed hotels are being asked to follow rules and regulations as well as service tax thresholds that had never been revised.

Furthermore, eight Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreements with CHUBB Insurance Malaysia Berhad; TPLINK Distribution Malaysia Sdn. Bhd; GLENVEX Sdn. Bhd (GLENVEX)& HYGIEIA Growth Ventures PLT (WeCuci); GUA Sdn. Bhd (ibilik); Infra Bunga Sdn. Bhd.; The Asean-Retail Chains Franchise Federation (ARFF); Business Networking Club KL & PJ (BNC); and the Malaysia Obstacle Race Sport Association (MORSA) were signed during the event, strengthening affiliations and enhancing benefits for MYBHA members.
