Online PR News – 17-May-2012 – Kuala Lumpur – To meet the demands for larger space, the country’s leading convention centre, the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) has acquired 2,600 sqm of additional space to add to its facility. Built as a semi-permanent marquee adjacent to the Centre, the new marquee structure, known as Hall 6 will allow the Centre to accommodate larger exhibitions, conferences and other events.

Hall 6 has been built by the Centre’s owners, KLCC (Holdings) Sdn Bhd for the 25th World Gas Conference (WGC2012) which Kuala Lumpur will be hosting from 4 to 8 June this year (2012). Located adjacent to the Centre and connected via Exhibition Hall 5 and the Centre’s West Wing entrance, Hall 6 will provide additional multipurpose function space for the Centre to meet the demand for larger space in the short to medium term.

“Hall 6,” says Datuk Peter Brokenshire, General Manager, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, “will allow the Centre to address and alleviate our space constraints especially where exhibitions are concerned.”

“This space will be available for use for the next 12 – 24 months with the possibility of extension for a further limited period,” Datuk Brokenshire added.

In addition to exhibitions, Hall 6 will also be able to host cocktail receptions, hi-teas, buffet style catering, presentations, town hall meetings and concerts. Currently open for bookings, Hall 6 will be available for use after 15 June 2012 onwards.

The new Hall 6 adds to the Centre’s existing space of 20,059 sqm of flexible function space that includes Exhibition Halls, Plenary Hall, Plenary Theatre, a Grand Ballroom, Banquet Hall, Conference Hall, 20 meeting rooms and ancillary facilities, and the latest in wireless, 3G telecommunications and digital audio-visual services.
