The Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) has successfully led 10 Malaysian animation studios to the Hong Kong International Licensing Show 2016 from 11th to 13th January 2016.

As Malaysia ranked the third most preferred location in Southeast Asia for global services*, MDeC seized the opportunity to focus more on the fundamentals of creative multimedia by exhibiting the best Malaysian content at the show, hence showcasing to the the global market that Malaysia is on the right track to be the leader of creative digital content provider.

Among the participated companies were Animasia Productions, Animonsta Studios, Backbone Entertainment, Digital Durian and many more.

The 13th HKTDC Hong Kong International Licensing Show has attracted a record of more than 19,500 visitors. The rise was attributed to stronger participation from the Chinese mainland, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, and the United States as well as from Hong Kong. The show was held alongside the HKTDC Hong Kong Toys & Games Fair, HKTDC Hong Kong Baby Products Fair and Hong Kong International Stationery Fair to open more opportunities for cross-over business and knowledge sharing.
