Malaysia’s business events industry is looking forward to host more than 120 events in the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (The Centre) in the next two years. 51 conventions and 76 exhibitions have already been booked at the venue from 2022 to 2024.

“We definitely are seeing an improvement in Malaysia’s business events landscape after two years, which were heavily impacted by the pandemic. Malaysia as a destination has demonstrated its capability to create a safe environment for business events moving forward and the strength and resilience of its supply chain and logistics, showcasing flexibility and agility in the face of a global crisis,” says Alan Pryor, the Centre’s General Manager.

Since Malaysia opened its international borders and eased meetings and events restrictions in April, the Centre has had about 300 in-person events welcoming about 200,000 delegates and guests.

The Centre’s upcoming events calendar includes the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium 2022 (IGARSS 2022); International Medical Exhibition & Conference (IMEC EXPO) 2022; 6th Asia-Pacific Glaucoma Congress (APGC) 2022; International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition & Conference (IGEM) 2022; International Congress on Infectious Diseases 2022; IEEE International Instrumentation & Measurement Technology Conference (I2MTC) 2023; and more.
