The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) in Malaysia is ready for a busy period ahead. As the country eases travelling restrictions, the Centre has already confirmed 20 major events, 10 conventions and 13 exhibitions, from now until December 2022.
The upcoming international events include International Congress on Infectious Diseases (ICID) 2022; International Conference on Tropical Agriculture (ICTA) 2022; International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS) 2022; Asia Turbomachinery & Pump Symposium (ATPS) 2022; 3rd Asia Optometric Congress 2022; and International Medical Exhibition & Conference (IMEC EXPO) 2022.
Alan Pryor, General Manager of the Centre, said: “The re-opening of our international borders will accelerate the country’s economic rebound, but we (the Centre) are returning to a tough business events landscape. The overall business pie has shrunk making competition stiffer and price wars more aggressive. Malaysia needs strong, compelling policies and strategies to capitalise on the destination’s attractive proposition to set itself apart from neighbouring competitors and help entice more international events to come to our shores.”
