It has been a little over a year since Langkawi International Convention Centre’s (LICC) opened its doors to the 26th ASEAN Summit in 2015, officially marking its first day as an operating venue host. Since then, the facility has hosted 26 events and entertained over 5,800 delegates and visitors, establishing the facility as the preferred choice for event planners looking to add a little luxury to their meetings.

Michael Schlueter, Managing Director of LICC, Westin Resort & Spa and St. Regis said, “As the ‘new kids on the block’, we are happy to share that we met our targeted number of events for our first year in operation. This achievement is a great boost and encouragement to continue promoting our offerings and packages to the industry. We are confident of adding more events to our 2016 calendar as we have been receiving positive responses, both short and long term, from our initial participation in international trade shows in Australia and China.”

To celebrate its first year anniversary and show appreciation to current clients, LICC is giving a 5% discount off the master bill for group events, where participants are also guests of The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa. In addition to the 5% discount, LICC will also be providing group events with a complimentary two hours “Welcome Function”, inclusive of a selection of soft drinks and juices, as well as house wines or house beers.

The feedback we received so far is very positive and our offerings certainly seems to have appeal in many markets. We have a great team here at LICC and we look forward to achieving our targets for 2016.”
