Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) which celebrates its fifth year anniversary, says it has contributed approximately RM2.4 billion in economic impact to Kuala Lumpur city and Malaysia.
In a statement, it said KLCC had enjoyed high occupancy levels as the venue of choice for 2,960 events with over 8.3 million delegates and visitors since its official opening.
Having been awarded the ISO 14001:2004 by Sirim QAS International, the convention centre too had a good start into its fifth year, with 44 conventions and 57 exhibitions already confirmed on its 2010 events calendar.
"As 2010 progresses, the centre will continue to develop innovative product offerings to bolster its achievements for the future.
"The centre's success is also attributed to its central location complete with world-class infrastructure. It will be more appealing with the upcoming Grand Hyatt Hotel with its 1,030 rooms and Impiana KLCC Hotel Phase 2 expansion project which includes adding 180 rooms to the existing 1,641 units," it said.
