The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre is the premier convention and exhibition centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
This purpose-built convention & exhibition centre is a component part of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre precinct, fondly known as KLCC. Designed to be a “city within a city” this 40 hectare (100 acre) site includes the 50 acre KLCC Park and PETRONAS Twin Towers.
Hosting conferences, exhibitions, seminars, meetings and entertainment, the Centre is placed alongside public transportation and hotels.
The Centre achieved HACCP certification in December 2006 and in February 2007 became the first convention centre in Asia to achieve ‘Benchmarked’ status by Green Globe, the global Benchmarking, Certification and improvement system for sustainable travel & tourism.
