Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre to host over 30 high-profile events in 2018

The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre is busy gearing up to deliver the ultimate delegate experience in 2018, with 30 confirmed major high-profile events already on its calendar. These events are expected to attract close to 440,000 delegates and visitors to the centre.

Speaking on the sidelines of its 11th consecutive attendance at the Global Meetings & Events Expo (IBTM) World 2017, Angeline van den Broecke, Director-Sales and Marketing, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, shared, “Our philosophy of delivering innovative and value-add solutions that are personalised through our partnership approach, creating bespoke experiences and memorable customer journeys, has been accepted and embraced by clients across the board. Our highly knowledgeable and professional team, commitment to continuous investment in venue maintenance and efforts to adapt our business model to meet new expectations and market conditions, have also played an important part in why we have such a strong calendar of events to look forward to next year.”

The centre’s expansion also continues to progress and is due to be completed in mid-2019. The extension will provide an additional 11,000 sqm of flexible and multi-purpose space, which means more room to comfortably accommodate larger exhibitions and international association meetings, as well as concurrent events, allowing new and current clients to grow their activities and/or events significantly. The mixed-use commercial development will enhance the Centre’s existing world-class infrastructure, grow Kuala Lumpur’s reputation as a premier business events destination and help attract more international events to Malaysia.
