Reinforcing its reputation as Malaysia’s premier purpose-built venue, the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) was recently awarded as ‘Best Exhibition & Tradeshow Venue 2021’ by APAC Insider in its South-East Asia Business Awards 2021.
Alan Pryor, the Centre’s General Manager said that they are honoured to receive this award, which reflects the commitment and professionalism of our talented team, who are passionate and dedicated to being the perfect business events partner for our clients. It also strengthens our reputation as Malaysia’s premier purpose-built venue and one of Asia Pacific’s leading facilities.
Through collaboration with industry partners and the collective supply chain to address the challenges faced by the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Centre was instrumental in leading the approval and adoption of comprehensive government approved Business Events Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs) to ensure the safe resumption of events. This enabled the Centre to deliver a few successful consumer exhibitions and events that garnered a positive response from organisers, exhibitors and visitors, and provided assurance on the venue’s capabilities to safely and effectively deliver exhibitions and events.
It also demonstrated the venue’s commitment to absolute adherence and compliance to health and safety regulations, elevating the importance of events being conducted in a highly regulated and controlled environment.
Pryor concluded that this award is a great encouragement amidst such challenging times and provides a strong motivation for us to remain resilient and to continue positively pushing ahead, innovating and creating flexible meeting and events product offerings and solutions that meet our client needs across the board.
Although 2021 has been a very unpredictable business operations landscape, the Centre has remained focused on its business sustainability through re-skilling and upskilling its team members, digital transformation and diversification of business models and revenue streams to aid its recovery plans. Currently, the Centre is supporting the national immunisation programme as a mega vaccination centre.
