The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre is starting the new year strongly with over 200 business and entertainment events, as well as seven new international bid wins in 2023.
The confirmed events are set to attract over 700,000 delegates and visitors to the venue throughout the year.
“We have an exciting year ahead of us and are delighted to commence 2023 on a positive note with 30 per cent repeat business and 28 new conferences and exhibitions,” said Alan Pryor, the Centre’s general manager.
“We are also excited to have recently won seven new bids for high-profile association meetings between 2024 and 2030 that are expected to attract 16,000 international delegates to Malaysia.”
The Centre has 18 international and national conventions, 35 exhibitions, and about 160 corporate meetings and events on calendar for the year so far, with more to be added in the coming months.
The venue will see a range of debutant trade shows including Intelligent Manufacturing, CyberDSA, E-Mobility Asia and many more.
International conferences such as the 38th Asia Pacific Academy of Opthalmology Congress, Aesthetic Medicine & Surgery Conference, Energy Asia, World Renewable Energy Congress and World Women Leadership Summit will be taking place at the Centre between January and December.
“Adding value to our diverse customisable event spaces and supporting facilities, are a range of new services that are available to our clients,” said Pryor.
“We now have a dedicated team to assist with event conceptualisation, content and experience design, production planning, event set-up and tear-down, supplier liaison, and everything through to the successful delivery of the event.
“Our aim is to offer end-to-end services and solutions so clients and event organisers have everything they need to seamlessly execute their events, all under one roof.”
