The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre Launches 'We Have A Deal For You'

 The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre), the city's most technologically-advanced and purpose-built facility for conventions, exhibitions, entertainment and private functions, has launched 'We Have a Deal for You', a fresh and flexible value-added option for events held at the Centre.

The campaign, 'We Have a Deal for You' provides a Rewards Programme that enables clients to earn reward points against food and beverage charges, and redeem them against sound, lighting, video, decoration and theming packages, the five elements of the Centre's Creative Services.

Speaking at the Centre's Client Appreciation Cocktail reception, the Centre's General Manager, Peter Brokenshire said that the campaign was developed in response to client feedback and, in light of the current challenges facing the global economy and in turn, Malaysia.

"With the packages on offer, clients who hold their events here are entitled to reward points; which will be 10% of the total food and beverage charges (before service charge and government tax). These points can be redeemed against sound, lighting, video, decoration enhancements and theming for events through the Centre's creative services.

"Designed to meet the most basic or comprehensive requirements, a 'pick and mix' format provides added flexibility as the organiser or host can select and redeem their reward points for their different creative requirements for their event."

Banqueting events such as dinners, cocktail receptions, launches and high-tea functions held at the Centre's Grand Ballroom, Conference Halls, Banquet Hall and Exhibition Halls could all benefit from this offering.

Following the successful launch of TenOnCall catering specifically to meetings of between two to 150 persons with a just-in-time package, the Centre has created flexible DCP offers for the Plenary Hall and Plenary Theatre.

Elaborating on the DCP offer, Brokenshire said, "The choice of full-day DCP packages now come with an option of a standing buffet at the venue's foyer area to facilitate better networking among attendees."
