Viewed as a cultural bridge between the East and West, with multiple international connections from Asian countries such as Singapore and China, Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, is rapidly becoming an upcoming centre for international meetings and conventions.
Look at their history: strategically located on trade routes between India and China, for 600 years now, Malaysia has been the place to meet and do trade with Arabs, Indians, Chinese, and Europeans. This unique blend of culture is a true asset to make Malaysia a cosmopolitan, dynamic, and progressive country.
Malaysia has a plethora of factors that makes it an ideal venue for the next MICE event: it has a central location, a large variety of accommodation, hospitality, a peaceful environment with leisure activities just a short trip from the city, the affordability of its venues and the cultural mélange of its society. Over the past decades, Malaysia also boasts the development of many new world-class convention facilities such as the MATRADE Exhibition and Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur.
Furthermore, the Malaysian government just launched a Kuala Lumpur City Hall incentive package where incentives are offered to organizers of MICE events that promise to bring in 500 or more foreign delegates to the city. For more information you can go to their website here
