Malaysia hosted 11 European-based international association events in 2018
These events were amongst the Centre’s 1189 held this year to-date, which have been attended by over 1.85 million participants.
General manager Alan Pryor said it was particularly fitting to attend what is the centre’s 12th consecutive attendance at IBTM World 2018 on the back of hosting a record number of international association meetings in 2018.
“We are especially looking forward to sharing our latest developments, including our brand new 11,000 sqm expansion, which opens mid next year,” he said.
“It is encouraging to see that our engagement programme with our international association clients is delivering consistent value to them and we are delighted with the positive feedback on our world-class infrastructure, ease of connectivity and accessibility, that English is widely spoken and notably the affordability of the destination received from clients and participants, many of which were experiencing Kuala Lumpur for the first time.”
Recent feedback from an event held at the venue highlighting this proposition was the IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations) World Library and Information Congress 2018.
“Due to its strategic location in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, the Centre provides a great delegate experience because of its proximity to hotels of all categories, shopping malls and numerous entertainment options,” said Roberta Odebrecht, account director at K.I.T Group, the congress organiser.
“We are most impressed by the team’s professionalism, enthusiasm and proactivity. The venue perfectly understood our client’s requirements and the importance of aligning each other’s business perspectives and objectives. I personally love the adjacent KLCC park, where I can work out in the mornings before I start my meetings. We organised a wellbeing programme there during the congress – the delegates really enjoyed this experience!”
