The recovery of Malaysia’s events industry is on track towards pre-pandemic levels with the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) having received up to 127 global meetings bookings from 2022 to 2024, according to Travel And Tour World.

The Covid-19 pandemic has severely impacted the business events landscape in Malaysia over the last two years. 

However, since the Southeast Asian country reopened its international borders and eased meetings and events restrictions in April, the KLCC has hosted nearly 300 in-person events with about 200,000 attendees. 

Alan Pryor, KLCC General Manager, said, “We hosted a record number of corporate open houses this year during the Hari Raya season, hosting up to five dinners and thousands of guests, in one night.

“The open houses are an important part of Malaysia’s business culture and are a key avenue for local organisations and companies to build and maintain professional affiliations, as well as engage with their team members during the festive period,” he added.
