Trenchless Asia 2023 establishes Kuala Lumpur as Asia hub

Trenchless Asia

The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre recently hosted Trenchless Asia 2023 marking the third time the rotating biennial event has been held at the venue.

Trenchless Asia 2023 welcomed 3,000 delegates from around the world and featured 150 exhibitors representing 27 countries. With 24 individual conference sessions, the event surpassed all expectations and achieved significant growth compared to its previous edition in 2018.

“As a burgeoning city with long-term urban development plans, and with such strong support from the trenchless community and stakeholders here, Kuala Lumpur has been established as the trenchless hub in Asia,” said Paul Harwood, managing director of organiser Westrade Group.

“The show returned to Kuala Lumpur after a break with response from exhibitors and delegates so overwhelming that this year’s edition was scaled up by 50% and the multi-track conference programs had attracted more delegates than expected.”

Taking up a total of 5,000sqm, the Centre’s purpose-built exhibition halls with huge loading bay opening and an extensive floor loading capacity were perfect to accommodate all the booths and heavy machinery.

“We are exceptionally proud to host Trenchless Asia in Malaysia and are glad that the event was so successful,” said John Burke, the Centre’s general manager.

“Trenchless Asia 2023 clearly demonstrated the exhibition industry’s ability to drive growth, foster connections, and showcase innovation. As exhibitions continue to evolve, we at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre remain committed to providing exceptional experiences for organisers and participants.”
