Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre looks for Australian market

Published on : Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Kuala Lumpur Convention CentreThe Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre’s (the Centre) focus on the Australian market is bearing fruit with five Australia-linked clients choosing the Centre as their ‘venue of choice’ this year. These include the Australian High Commission’s Australia Day Reception 2017, 5th International Secondary Lead Conference 2017, 17th Asian Battery Conference 2017, Malaysia Australia Business Council (MABC) Networking Cocktail Reception and The University of Melbourne’s Malaysia Regional Office pre-departure briefing. Last year, the Centre also hosted the Australian Business Asia Conference 2016 and Australia Day Reception 2016.

 

 

The Centre’s General Manager, Alan Pryor and Director of Sales & Marketing, Angeline van den Broecke are attending the Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo (AIME) 2017 in Melbourne. The Centre has always enjoyed a warm relationship with Australia-linked clients and AIME provides the perfect platform for it to expand and strengthen these relationships, as well as to showcase its flexible, innovative, value-add and customised solutions. As part of the AEG Ogden group of convention centres, the Centre has long-standing relationships with the Australian High Commission Malaysia, Malaysia Australia Business Council (MABC) and Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA). These connections give the team a more in-depth understanding of the Australian market, which allow them to tailor offerings to better meet the needs of Australia-based clients and Malaysia-based Australian companies.

 

 

Roslyn McLeod, the Managing Director of Arinex Pty Ltd, who recently visited the Centre on a site inspection shared the following feedback “I have visited the the Centre many times and experienced it operating for conferences of different sizes and demands. This site inspection gave me a refreshed view of the Centre, its Team, how it is evolving and the range of benefits both the Centre and KL offer to Australian conferences. I give the Centre top marks for its attention to detail, going above and beyond to please and demonstrating not only how much Malaysians care about welcoming Australian conferences but also how well they can perform.”

 

Looking ahead, the Centre’s expansion which will provide an additional 10,000 sqm of multi-purpose space continues to progress and is due to be completed in mid-2019. 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.
