Malaysia has become one of the most sought-after meeting destinations in the Asia-Pacific, offering groups a comprehensive package of first-rate accommodations, venues,
and infrastructure. In 2015, Malaysia hosted 214 business events, and is
currently ranked at No. 35 in ICCA’s world convention country rankings
and ranked at No. 9 in the Asia Pacific.
Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia and Putrajaya (the
administrative capital), offers three convention centers — Kuala
Lumpur Convention Centre, Putrajaya International Convention
Centre, and MATRADE Exhibition and Convention Centre. A fourth
is on the way — completion of the Malaysia International Trade and
Exhibition Centre is projected by 2018. A modern city, Kuala Lumpur
is thick with five-star hotels, high-speed Internet infrastructure, and a
few of the top 10 world’s largest shopping malls.
Moving north, Penang offers a mix of history (the city is a UNESCO
World Heritage Site), modern meeting facilities, and some of the best
hawker-style food in Malaysia. Venues include the Subterranean Penang
International Convention and Exhibition Centre — Penang’s largest
with capacity of up to 13,000 — and the Straits Quay Convention
Centre ( 2,000 capacity for seated functions), while in 2017, the Penang
Waterfront Convention Centre will open with more than 100,000
square feet of meeting space.
For smaller groups and incentive programs, Langkawi offers
an excellent tropical retreat. Island hopping or relaxing at five-star
resorts, Langkawi’s diversions are many. Langkawi is also home to
the world’s longest free-span curved bridge on Mt. Machinchang,
which offers plenty of attractions such as cable cars, hiking trails, and
The East Malaysian state of Sabah and Sarawak is part of Borneo,
the third-largest island in the world. A paradise for nature lovers, the
two states offer scenic landscapes, delectable cuisine, and adventure
activities. Kuching offers the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching,
a first purpose-built international convention center, ready for any
kind of events to fit the needs of event planners. Additionally, Sabah
International Convention Centre in Sabah is expected to be completed
in the first quarter of 2018.
