News this week: Malaysia’s Setia City Convention Centre (SCCC) is planning to add a new 6,000 m2 hall adjacent to its main entrance to cater for larger events. Scheduled for completion in mid-2016, gross floor space will reach close to 10,000 m2.
SCCC is a two-year old venue located in the Setia Alam Township – a 40 minute drive from Kuala Lumpur. The configurable new hall can be split into two and connects to the main convention centre via a covered walkway. SCCC’s expanded capacity will be able to cater for exhibitions of up to 350 booths and larger conventions with up to 8,000 people in a theatre arrangement.
Francis Teo, head of SCCC, commented, “There aren’t many venues in Klang Valley that can accommodate large conventions. We are building this extension as we see demand for space for exhibitions and large banquets.”
