Published on : Wednesday, August 19, 2015

KLCCThe Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) has chalked up a busy first half in her 10th year of operation recorded 661 events with a total 778,414 delegates and visitors and an economic impact contribution of RM264 million from 1 January to 30 June 2015.The achievement is on the back of a record 2014 performance, when the number of events jumped 11% from the 2013 record of 1,565 to 1,759.



On the calendar for the remainder of the year, General Manager Alan Pryor says are “over25 events with an expected total turnout in excess of 420,000 people. And this does not include banquets and entertainment activities or events held at TenOnCall which services the short-lead or just-in-time corporate meetings sector.



“After a decade of operation, it is fitting that in our 10th anniversary year, we have hosted many prestigious government-related events and we are honoured to be have been selected the venue of choice for many ASEAN ministerial meetings.”In addition, Pryor says, “we are fortunate to have a loyal client base such as BookFest,HOMEDEC, PIKOM PC Fair, ARCHIDEX, Star Education Fair and Asia Oil & Gas Conference who have all made consecutive appearances and/or hosted every (event) edition with us since our opening in June 2005.”



That said, “a knowledgeable and professional team committed to meeting and satisfying clients’ evolving meetings needs by consistently delivering flexible, innovative and value-add solutions across the board has also been integral to our success and a key point of difference.”



Moving forward, to reward loyal repeat clients and entice new regulars, the Centre has extended the 2014 prices for her popular Day Conference Packages (DCPs) With a Difference, PlenaryOnCall, PlenaryHallOnCall and Banquets & Functions menus through to the end of the first quarter next year (2016). “Coupled with what’s happening around the venue, we are confident of finishing (the year) on a strong note and into the next year,” adds Pryor.
