Touted as the country’s largest trade and exhibition space that has catered to over 180 business events since its inception in 2017, the Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre’s (MITEC) has made a strategic move to expand its meeting spaces.
The confex and meeting segments are big contributors to the Malaysian business events economy and MITEC has been the venue of choice in enabling the country to host international expos at a world class level. “It makes perfect sense for us to leverage on our current capacity and abilities to further expand our meetings and conferences business,” said Gunther Beissel, Chief Executive Officer of MITEC.
By September, professional conference and meetings planners will be able to add more meeting rooms to their list as MITEC completes two additional rooms. The rooms will be located on Level 1A of the building, showcases the flexibility of theatre and banquet style seating. The theatre style arrangement accommodates up to 1,200 pax while banquet seating is up to 650 pax. In a slightly smaller set-up, the other room can accommodate up to 400 pax for theatre style and 240 pax for banquet arrangements. These rooms have the flexibility to be used as smaller exhibition spaces closer to the other conference rooms.
Speaking on its positioning in the market, Beissel elaborated, “As a premier Venue business partner, MITEC’s facilities are continuously upgraded to stay ahead of its market demand through offering higher value customised client solutions and in-house expertise.”
Upon completion of these meeting spaces, the business readiness of the Centre will encompass 11 exhibitions halls, one ballroom, 13 meetings rooms, two outdoor amphitheatres and two new multipurpose rooms.
