It was a strong year for Medical conferences at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre in 2018, with seven high-profile events attracting over 7,300 participants. The Centre’s General Manager, Alan Pryor, shared: “The strong performance from this sector looks set to continue for us, as next year we already have eight medical meetings confirmed which are expected to attract more than 6,300 participants. A number of these events will be using our brand new 11,000 sqm expansion, which opens mid next year and provides additional flexible space for our clients to grow their events.”
Speaking after the recent conclusion of the World Congress of SIVA-TCI 2018, Organising Chairman, Dr Raveenthiran Rasiah, said: “Hats off to the Centre, the professional team played an important part in making our event so memorable, it was truly a shared success. We organised this meeting without a professional conference organiser, which was only possible thanks to the Centre’s support and guidance. Everyone was fantastic and their flexibility was outstanding, every request we made (even last-minute ones) were taken care of immediately, with no questions asked. We received so many positive comments from our delegates, especially about the delicious food. We can’t wait to come back and are aiming to have our next national meeting at the Centre.”
Medical events taking place in 2019 include the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists Annual Scientific Meeting 2019; Urological Association of Asia Congress (UAA) 2019; ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) Summit 2019; Asia-Pacific Federation of Coloproctology Congress (APFCP) 2019; Malaysia International Dental Exhibition & Conference (MIDEC) 2019; and MDA (Malaysian Dental Association) Scientific Convention & Trade Exhibition (SCATE) 2019, to name a few.
