Taking home the Outstanding Venue Award at last week's Asian Federation of Exhibition & Convention Associations (AFECA) Awards 2016, the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) was recognised for its high standards of facilities and services for the first time by the association.
Alan Pryor, the Centre's general manager said, "This accolade recognises the efforts and commitment of our team and our philosophy to be the perfect business events partner for our clients. Of further significance is our constant commitment to investment in the maintenance and upgrade of our infrastructure in order to ensure we remain a market leader and Malaysia's premier purpose-built convention centre."
Located right in the heart of the city, The Centre offers over 20,000 square metres of function space including 10,000 square metres of exhibition space, a grand ballroom with a capacity of 2,000, two auditoria (seating 3,000 and 500 respectively), a Banquet Hall able to seat 500, a Conference Hall that can accommodate 1,800 delegates and 20 other meeting rooms.
"We have a huge passion for the business events industry which extends beyond our own venue. This is evidenced by our ongoing commitment to industry advocacy, professional development, environmental sustainability and product innovation, which elevates our contribution to the development of the industry supply chain," Pryor concluded.
