COVID-19 Didn’t Stop WTCKL from Earning the Best International Business Event Branding Award by Malaysia Tourism Council (MTC)

KUALA LUMPUR, 9 DECEMBER 2021: World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur (WTCKL) claimed the crown as the Best International Business Event Branding at the Malaysia Tourism Council Gold Awards 2021 held at the New World Petaling Jaya Hotel.


The Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) and Business Events (BE) industries were heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, primarily when the government implemented the Movement Control Order (MCO). This award recognized the hard work of over 300 staff at WTCKL when the COVID-19 pandemic posed unprecedented challenges in organizing crowd activities.


“This recognition presents a positive image for WTCKL to the MICE and BE industry players in Malaysia and internationally. I hope WTCKL’s success can be a source of inspiration and reference to the 320 World Trade Centers Association (WTCA) networks from across the world to move forward and thrive in the post-COVID-19 setting. ” Said Dato’ Sri Dr Irmohizam bin Ibrahim, Group Executive Director of World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur.


During the MCO, WTCKL served as the vaccination centre (PPV WTCKL), administering over 1.3 million doses of Astrazeneca vaccines for 5 months before the government lifted the restriction on MICE activities. Looking forward, WTCKL pledged to continue contributing to Malaysia’s tourism, MICE and BE industry.



Dato’ Sri Dr Irmohizam bin Ibrahim is also the Chairman of the Asia Pacific Conference and Exhibition of the WTCA Member Advisory Council.
