MISA ’21 / ’22 Submission period extended

Dear MDBC members,

With the recent high number of public holidays and the overwhelming number of requests, we are extending the deadline for submissions by one week to Friday, 20 May 2022. We hope that this extension allows your organization to present your submission(s) effectively for MISA ’21 / ’21 along with your inspiring video.

MISA ‘21 / ’22 is a great opportunity for potential partnerships from around Asia and Europe as many of our impactful MDBC members will be attending. This will be an exceptional time to finally meet MDBC
members and non – members, and build trust face to face again. Also, it will help your organization gain invaluable insight into potential partnerships with targeted organizations. Besides that, MISA opens a
range of opportunities to gain exposure by sharing your organization’s best practices and getting inspired by global innovative organizations.

We would like to thank those who have submitted their nominations and wish you the best of luck! For the ones who are still working diligently on their submissions, we look forward to receiving them
before Friday, 20 May 2022.

If you feel that some of these categories are not appropriate for you, but you do have a business partner / vendor that would be eligible, please forward this information to them.  MISA is open to all* and we look forward to the sharing of best practices at the MISA ’21 / ’22 event.

*Please note: While MISA is open to all (Members and Non – Members), specific categories are restricted to Members Only.  

Best of luck to all who are competing!
