The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) has been busy preparing to host six sporting events and is excited to welcome athletes and visitors to the venue for the upcoming 29th SEA (Southeast Asian) Games 2017 and the 9th ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Para Games 2017, also known as Kuala Lumpur 2017 (KL2017).
“We are honoured to be one of the chosen venues for six sporting disciplines during KL2017. Taking place between 20th and 31st August 2017, the Centre will be hosting Billiards & Snooker, Judo, Karate, Pencak Silat, Taekwando and Wushu,” Alan Pryor, General Manager of the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC), said. Located in the heart of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) precinct, with a view of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers and 50-acre KLCC Park, visitors attending the 9th ASEAN Para Games 2017 at the Centre have a wide choice of recreational, entertainment, food & beverage and accommodation options available. These include Suria KLCC shopping mall, PETRONAS Twin Towers, Dewan Philharmonic Petronas, Aquaria KLCC, Galeri Petronas and Petrosains, to name a few. The precinct infrastructure also provides excellent accessibility and connectivity, with the majority of attractions and public transport within a 5 to 10-minute walk via covered air-conditioned walkways from the KLCC. Pryor: “As a purpose-built facility, we are able to deliver to the customised needs of many different types of events and unconventional functions. We pride ourselves on our flexibility and adaptability, and being chosen to hold six sporting events during Kuala Lumpur 2017 is the perfect example of this.” (wün)www.klccconventioncentre.com
