Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre -- The Best In Asia
Organised annually by CEI Asia Pacific, one of the region's leading titles for the MICE industry, the CEI Industry Awards culls the views and opinions of CEI Asia Pacific readers in an industry survey which is reputed to be the most useful, credible and far-reaching research compiled on the industry.
"This recognition by the astute readers of CEI Asia Pacific further exemplifies the Centre's commitment to providing an excellent experience for every guest and to not only meet but exceed our clients' objectives and requirements.
"And of course," continued Brokenshire, "the ‘Best MICE Sales Team' award is an acknowledgement of the passion, commitment and dedication of the Centre's Sales & Marketing team. Affectionately hailed as ‘the engine' of the Centre, the team has worked long and hard to secure more than 1,800 events since our opening in June 2005 to December 2008, contributing more than RM 1.8 billion (USD 0.5 billion) to the city.
"It is through the team's on-going efforts that the Centre has contributed to the growth of the business tourism industry in Malaysia. With the continued support of the Centre's experienced team, we endeavour to promote the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre in the global conventions and exhibitions arena."
