The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (known as ‘the Centre’) has worked with its clients to reschedule 66 major meetings and events for later in the year that have been impacted by Covid-19.
The Centre’s team has been working closely with its clients to find their preferred dates and offer solutions. They have also used their specialised knowledge to help organisers to ‘reimagine’ events, making adjustments to event design and layout, based on the expected business events landscape in the future.
The Centre’s team also revisited the capabilities of the venue itself, to identify how technology, more creative use of space and F&B provision will enable meetings and events to continue taking into account the new operational requirements regarding hygiene, social distancing and virtual events.
The Centre’s General Manager, Alan Pryor, said: “Covid-19 has presented all of us with many unique challenges, but we are remaining as flexible and resilient as possible, and working very hard and closely with all our recurrent and potential new clients to ensure that every event at our venue is a success. We look forward to welcoming events back to the Centre once government deems it safe to do so, and we are ready to institute all guidelines and provide a safe, healthy and secure environment in line with operational standards laid out.
“Until we can meet face-to-face, we wish all our clients, stakeholders and communities at home and abroad good health and wellbeing and express our sincere condolences to those who have experienced personal loss during these very trying times.”
