THE Subterranean Penang International Conference and Exhibition Centre (Spice) in Bayan Baru became like the United Nations when some 10,000 distributors from 60 countries of direct selling company QNet congregated at the arena for the company’s annual convention.
This was how Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng described the venue when he graced the opening of the convention earlier this month.
“I did not imagine I could walk in and find 10,000 people from 60 countries in the arena.
“This is like the United Nations. You might call it the UN of entrepreneurs from QNet,” Lim said.
The distributors came mainly from countries such as India, Kazakhstan, UAE, and Ubezkistan.
QNet, founded by Penang-born businessman Datuk Seri Vijay Eswaran, the company specialises in selling wellness and lifestyle products.
“Our global QNet family has seen through 15 remarkable years, growing bigger, stronger, and better.
“For this year’s homecoming, our battle cry reminds us of what we have been doing throughout our business, not only to diversify in this industry, but also to elevate ourselves and our community,” said QNet managing director JR Mayer.
QNet offers a range of products via its e-commerce platform.
The company has 25 offices and agencies worldwide.
