Stronger Bonds Between Malaysia and US Associations

The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) recently hosted an immersive educational event for AMC (Association Management Companies) Institute, and two high-profile US-based association events this year, the 29th International Congress for Conservation Biology 2019 and Asia Turbomachinery & Pump Symposium (ATPS) Industry Summit 2019 in an effort to take its growing traction with the North American meetings market further.

This investment in growing partnerships with North American based associations continues with four major bid wins that will culminate at the Centre next year, including the 19th International Congress on Infectious Diseases (ICID) 2020; World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) World Congress 2020; Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers’ (ICANN) 68th Asia Pacific Public Meeting 2020; and Asia Turbomachinery & Pump Symposium (ATPS) 2020The venue also recently won three US-based association bids from the oil & gas and education sectors to be held between 2020 and 2023.

Following her engaging experience in Kuala Lumpur, and having become a new advocate, SmithBucklin, Executive Vice President, Michael Payne said: “The city, the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre and just the overall immersive visit was truly a first-class experience. The flexibility offered by the Centre, the level of service provided, overall quality of the facility and excellent food made it one of the more attractive and best Convention Centre’s I’ve seen. The ease of connectivity, wide spread use of English and overall competitive pricing, as well as the convenience and quality of the surrounding hotels make it an incredible offering.”
