Kuala Lumpar Convention Centre opens doors for October

The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) has announced that it will be hosting two consumer exhibitions during October.

The inaugural Beautylife Bonanza will be taking place from 1-3 October and Ekspo Kucing (Cat Expo) 2020 from 2-4 October.

Both exhibitions offer free admission and will be taking place in a controlled and secure hygenic environment with safety and security measures in line with the approved Malaysian National Security Council Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

The Centre’s general manager, Alan Pryor, said: “Is it great to be welcoming consumer exhibitions back to the Centre and we are pleased to be kicking off with these two fun events. Being able to host exhibitions again is a testament to the hard work and dedication of Malaysia’s frontliners and government in combatting Covid-19 in the country.

“Since we reopened our doors on 1 July, we are grateful to have safely and successfully hosted 84 events – two conventions, two entertainment events and 80 meetings and events (up to 25 September). We have been working tirelessly to restore consumer confidence in events and are starting to see signs of recovery, with 10 exhibitions (trade and consumer) in the pipeline for the rest of 2020.”

Gerard Leeuwenburgh, country general manager for Malaysia at Informa Markets and organiser of Beautylife Bonanza, said: “We are excited and ready to bring our tradeshows back in the new normal and are happy to be hosting the inaugural Beautylife Bonanza at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.

“We have themed this year’s event ‘Giving Back to Community’ to help alleviate the impact on the underprivileged community and to achieve and maintain a sustainable livelihood through economic opportunities. So, we hope to see a great turn out from the community to support these organisations.”
