Published on : Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Kuala Lumpur Convention CentreThe Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre’s (the Centre) award-winning team 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; Malaysia’s premier purpose-built facility and Asia’s only AIPC (International Association of Congress Centres) Gold Standard venue.

The calendar of events includes prestigious first timers – Worldchefs Congress & Expo 2018, 35 th International Society for Quality in Healthcare (ISQua) International
Conference 2018, World Cancer Congress 2018 and International Solid Waste
Association (ISWA) World Congress 2018 – as well as eight Europe-based events, such
as Girls not Bride Global Conference 2018 and International Federation of Library
Associations and Institutions (IFLA) World Library and Information Congress 2018. In
addition, long-standing events which have held every edition at the venue since opening,
such as MIA Conference 2018, ARCHIDEX 2018, HRDF Conference & Exhibition 2018 and HOMEDEC 2018, continue to be the pillar of the Centre’s yearly business calendar.
Speaking on the sidelines of its 11 th consecutive attendance at the Global Meetings &
Events Expo (IBTM) World 2017, the Centre’s Sales & Marketing Director, Angeline van den Broecke, shared, “Our philosophy of delivering innovative and value-add solutions
that are personalized 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 strategic location and precinct proposition also remain a powerful
differentiator and the venue has enhanced this further through the establishment of the
Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre Business Events Alliance (KLCC BEA). A private
sector initiative, the KLCC BEA is a powerful collective that provides a seamless and
single point of first contact for Meeting Planners and Event Organisers. This allows the
Centre to market the fully-integrated city centre offering and create an all-inclusive
proposition for meetings and events from a venue, planner, accommodation and
entertainment perspective.
Angeline elaborated, “The partners of the Alliance have come together to offer a specific
set of benefits to Meeting Planners and Event Organisers that increase the value
proposition of the precinct through partner collaboration. Each Partner customizes their
value-adds to the nature of the client request. These benefits are targeted towards
creating enhanced added value to both clients and delegates.”
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.

Attendees at IBTM World are welcome to visit BOOTH H60 to learn more about the
fantastic business event opportunities provided by Malaysia and why the Centre’s
flexible, innovative value propositions and customised client centric solutions make it the
perfect business events partner.
