ASIA - The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) has built a 2,600sqm semi-permanent marquee adjacent to the venue to meet what it claims is rising demand for larger space.
 
The new marquee structure, known as Hall 6, will allow the centre to accommodate larger exhibitions, conferences and other events. It has been built by owner KLCC (Holdings) for the 25th World Gas Conference (WGC2012), which Kuala Lumpur will be hosting from 4 to 8 June.
 
Located adjacent to the KLCC and connected via Exhibition Hall 5 and the centre’s West Wing entrance, Hall 6 will provide additional multipurpose function space to meet client demand in the short- to medium-term.
 
“Hall 6 will allow the centre to address and alleviate our space constraints especially where exhibitions are concerned,” said GM of the KLCC Datuk Peter Brokenshire. “This space will be available for use for the next 12-24 months with the possibility of extension for a further limited period.”
 
In addition to exhibitions, Hall 6 will be able to host cocktail receptions, buffet-style catering, presentations, town hall meetings and concerts. Hall 6 will be available for use after 15 June.
 
KLCC offers 20,059sqm of permanent function space.
