The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) has won seven new bids to host association conferences this year, adding to its strong event roster of repeat business. 

The event venue in Malaysia’s capital will play host to 200 confirmed events attracting more than 700,000 delegates. 

“We are delighted to commence 2023 on a positive note with 30 per cent repeat business and 28 new conferences and exhibitions. We are also excited to have recently won seven new bids for high-profile association meetings between 2024 and 2030 that are expected to attract 16,000 international delegates to Malaysia,” said KLCC general manager, Alan Pryor. 

In addition to 35 exhibitions and 160 corporate meetings, KLCC will welcome key international conferences including the 38th Asia Pacific Academy of Opthalmology Congress (APAO), Aesthetic Medicine& Surgery Conference (AMSC), Energy Asia, World Renewable Energy Congress (WREC), and World Women Leadership Summit between January and December.

“We now have a dedicated team to assist with event conceptualisation, content and experience design, production planning, event set-up and tear-down, supplier liaison, and everything through to the successful delivery of the event, added Pryor. “Our aim is to offer end-to-end services and solutions so clients and event organisers have everything they need to seamlessly execute their events, all under one roof.”
