“We are excited to be here”
Las Vegas.– The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre), Malaysia’s premier award-winning purpose-built facility and Asia’s only AIPC (International Association of Congress Centres) Gold Standard venue, is celebrating its 11th consecutive attendance at IMEX (Worldwide Exhibition for Incentive Travel, Meetings & Events) America 2017 with an emphasis on strengthening client relations & industry collaboration.
Speaking on the sidelines of IMEX America, the Centre’s General Manager, Alan Pryor, shared, “We are excited to be here, as IMEX gives us a superb platform to reach our North American audience. The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre has so much to offer US event organisers. We provide an ideal ‘soft landing’ for US events in Southeast Asia, because of our strategic location and integrated precinct proposition which remains a powerful differentiator.”
“The Centre has great accessibility and connectivity to accommodation, dining, shopping, entertainment and iconic attractions all within walking distance. Our value for money offerings and favourable currency exchange rate also make organising an event here very affordable. The Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Index 2017 has also ranked Malaysia second among nine South East Asian nations based on its price competitiveness, strong air connectivity and beautiful natural environment.” Pryor continued.
The Centre has had a lot of success attracting events from North America and looks forward to welcoming the 22nd Congress of the World Council of Enterostomal Therapists (WCET) 2018; Global Round World Scholar Cup 2018 and International Congress for Conservation Biology 2019 in the near future.
“IMEX provides us with a great opportunity to emphasise to the North American audience on why Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur has much to offer organisers considering hosting their events in Asia. As such we continue to invest resources into attracting businesses from the US,” Pryor concluded.
Attendees at IMEX America can visit the Centre at Booth D2841 to discover the fantastic business event opportunities provided by Malaysia, including the Centre’s flexible, innovative value propositions and its customised client centric solutions under its partnership approach.
