KUALA LUMPUR - The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre has announced that it has secured four major bids to host events from North American associations, underlining its growing traction on the market.

The centre said it will host the 19th International Congress on Infectious Diseases (ICID) 2020; World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) World Congress 2020; Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers' (ICANN) 68th Asia Pacific Public Meeting 2020; and Asia Turbomachinery & Pump Symposium (ATPS) 2020 next year.

In a statement, the venue added it has also won three US-based association bids from the oil & gas and education sectors, with the events to be held between 2020 and 2023.

This came after the centre had hosted a recent immersive educational for AMC (Association Management Companies) Institute, and two high-profile US-based association events in the 29th International Congress for Conservation Biology 2019 and Asia Turbomachinery & Pump Symposium (ATPS) Industry Summit 2019.

"The US is one of the key target markets under our global industry engagement and business development programme and we have consistently invested in North America to help drive our business opportunities and expand in-market reach," said the centre's general manager Alan Pryor.

"This year we have really built on that momentum."

The centre will be sharing more on its expansion plans and business event opportunities in Malaysia to participants of IMEX America 2019 at Booth B4028 on Sept 10-12.
