What's The ROI On The Merdeka Parade?

What's The ROI On The Merdeka Parade?

Malaysia Day and Merdeka is always an exciting time for Malaysians, and this year is no different, with thousands of people swarming in to Dataran Putrajaya to witness our annual parade. Apparently, this year's attendance is considered one of the best in our history. So what does it actually take to organise a choreographed event of this magnitude? We discuss this with Joe Sidek, who directed the George Town Festival. Then, we ask our listeners to share their thoughts on whether events like this get them pumped up.
