Borneo Convention Centre Kuching opens

The Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK), the first facility of its kind on the Malaysian island, is now open for business.

The BCCK is located on a 15-acre waterfront site in Malaysia's largest state, Sarawak, and offers a 2,793sqm Great Hall for up to 5,000 delegates, plus 14 additional meeting rooms.

Working in conjunction with Sarawak Convention Bureau (SCB), the BCCK has already secured several international conferences.

The launch event on 18 October incorporated a site visit by 13 delegates, including buyers from the UK and Australia.

The opening of the BCCK is the pinnacle of a major conference and incentive drive for Borneo, with five nearby hotel developments due for completion by next year.

SCB director of sales and marketing Christina Wendt said: "We're very excited to showcase Sarawak as one of Asia-Pacific's premier meeting venues."
