The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre has been voted as the Winner of “Eventseum Hall of Fame’s 2021 Global Innovation Award for Convention and Conference Centers” for the region of Asia. The convention centre is committed to sustainability: The zero-energy rainwater harvesting systems provide up to 60,000 gallons of rainwater per year, and there is a pioneering partnership with URBANICE Malaysia, a center of excellence for sustainable cities.

“Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre is honoured to have won this inaugural award. This recognition strengthens our position as the perfect choice for international organisers and planners to host their major regional and global congresses, exhibitions and meetings. We are further motivated to keep pushing the envelope, as a venue and an important infrastructure of our city, in contributing to Kuala Lumpur’s and Malaysia’s 2030 and 2050 sustainability agenda”, says Alan Pryor, the General Manager of the Centre.

The center was also named "Muslim-Friendly Convention & Exhibition Center of the Year" at the Halal in Travel Awards 2022. The award was presented at the "Halal in Travel - Global Summit" held in Singapore. All five of the centre's kitchens are Halal certified and over the years the center has been the preferred venue for many high profile Islamic events such as the 9th Muslim World Biz and the meeting of leaders of Islamic nations, KL Summit 2019.
