Kuching Hosts DISCON 2024: Rotary’s Global Gathering for Hope

Kuching, the vibrant heart of Sarawak, East Malaysia, is gearing up to welcome the esteemed members of Rotary International for the much-anticipated District Conference (DISCON) 2024. Scheduled from 17-19 May, this grand event, under the banner ‘Celebrating Hope,’ epitomizes Rotary’s unwavering dedication to fostering hope worldwide.

Hosted by the Rotary Club of Kuching, DISCON 2024 is more than just a conference; it is a jubilant congress. This gathering is a unique opportunity for Rotary members and friends to connect, exchange ideas, and jointly applaud their global impact.

The choice of Kuching as the venue adds an extra layer of allure to the event. Known for its magnetic charm and cultural richness, Kuching is a melting pot of traditions and natural splendor. The city invites attendees to delve into its unique heritage, enjoy its culinary delights, and experience the legendary warmth of its people.

Highlights include a round of golf at the prestigious Sarawak Golf Club, a scenic welcome dinner by the Sarawak River, and a series of thought-provoking sessions led by distinguished speakers. The Governor’s Banquet stands as the event’s crowning jewel, promising an evening of exquisite celebration and fellowship.

One of the most anticipated features of DISCON 2024 is its attempt to set a record in the Malaysia Book of Records for the largest gathering of people in ethnic wear, accompanied by a choreographed dance. This vibrant display aims to celebrate the diversity of the Malaysian nation and the global Rotary community.

Adding a touch of environmental consciousness and hope, the Rotary Club of Kuching’s adoption of a baby orangutan born in the wild in Sarawak is a significant highlight. During DISCON 2024, attendees will witness the official naming of this baby orangutan, aptly named ‘Hope,’ symbolizing Rotary’s theme for 2023-2024, ‘Create Hope in the World.’ This event reflects the organization’s commitment to positive global impact, harmonizing with the natural world.

Rotary International District 3310 extends an open invitation to its members and friends worldwide to join this grand celebration in Kuching.
