RM425 million Ipoh International Convention Centre will be operational form January

 Wednesday, December 30, 2020 


The RM425 million Ipoh International Convention Centre (IICC), which will be fully operational from next month, is expected to attract more business travelers to the city and in turn benefit its residents.

The property developer Bond Holdings Sdn Bhd as the manager, the Ipoh City Council (MBI) as landowner, and construction firm Sycal Bhd today sealed a collaboration agreement for the management of the 28,000 sq ft centre.

Ipoh Mayor Datuk Rumaizi Baharin said the main purpose of the collaboration was to manage the IICC effectively, including the banquet halls that could be used for annual dinners, corporate talks, trade fairs, community bazaars, workshop conferences and other activities.

The IICC will consist of a 0.56-hectare convention centre, a 0.34-hectare five-star hotel block and a 0.38-hectare serviced apartment.

The Rumaizi said Bond Holdings would manage the Bond Suites located next to the IICC to provide complete and ideal workspace facilities for the professionals.

Ong said Bond Holdings would fully cooperate with MBI which would act as a catalyst to create a cleaner, greener and more modern city for the locals.

Meanwhile, Saarani in his speech said the state government would always welcome strategic cooperation between the local authorities and all stakeholders including government agencies, the private sector, non-governmental organisations and also the public.

He said that this is important as a local authority like the Ipoh City Council cannot operate in silo as it becomes increasingly challenging to fulfil its responsibilities in developing a sustainable and resilient city.

He said the IICC would not only become a new landmark in Ipoh but would also become a knowledge and career development centre with a convention centre as well as fully-equipped and modern working space facilities.
