The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2019 and saw the opening of the centre's expansion in the second half of the year. This has brought the centre's total multi-purpose space to 33,659 sqm, enabling the venue to accommodate larger international association meetings and trade fair events as well as concurrent events. Specifically designed in a very flexible and customisable fashion, the multi-purpose spaces can accommodate innovative and experiential delivery of events and allows clients to explore new meeting design, networking hubs and customisation of their participant experience to suit any occasion. With a total of 1,618 events, 2019 recorded the highest number of events held at KLCC in the last five years. These events attracted over 1.6 million participants and contributed RM876 million (EUR 193 million) in economic impact to the country. Alan Pryor, general manager of KLCC, states: "This strong performance has us geared up towards another solid year. With the conventions segment already securing nearly 20 international and Asia Pacific events and the exhibitions segment also shaping up to be one of our biggest contributors, we are all ready for an even more impactful year ahead of us."
