IBTE’s Acting Deputy Chief Executive Officer (Academic) Norjemee bin Jenek said the festival serves as a celebration of the achievements by the students and future graduates of the institute.

“The Pesta Konvo IBTE 2023 aims to promote the employability of our graduates, while also building a platform for networking post-convocation and to encouraging our graduates to be more adaptive and entrepreneurial,” he said.

Some 1,842 students will receive certificates during the 31st convocation ceremony at the International Convention Centre, Berakas on November 23. Following the speech, Johnsgaard-Lewis officiated the festival before touring of the exhibitions and booths at the campus’ multi-purpose hall featuring a plethora of activities set up by the students.
