SHAH ALAM, Oct 4 (Bernama) -- Invest Selangor Bhd (Invest Selangor) has launched a smartphone application (app) for Selangor International Business Summit (SIBS) 2019 visitors to make it easy for them to navigate their way to exhibitors’ booths.

“Visitors can also register as SIBS 2019 participants through the app and schedule appointments or meetings with participating companies, exchange information and communicate with other visitors.

“The app also allows buyers to schedule their meeting with exhibitors much earlier to discuss business opportunities,” he told a press conference here, today.
