Kuala Lumpur: Se­tia City Con­ven­tion Cen­tre and Hall 1 and 2: Mod­ern, slick, el­e­gant and ab­so­lutely strik­ing in ar­chi­tec­ture and in­te­rior, Se­tia City Con­ven­tion Cen­tre (the Cen­tre) has plenty to of­fer. It won the Per­sat­uan Akitek Malaysia (PAM) Awards 2014 for Ex­cel­lence in Ar­chi­tec­ture in the in­te­rior de­sign cat­e­gory.

Ad­ja­cent to the pop­u­lar Se­tia City Mall, the Cen­tre of­fers a com­pre­hen­sive range of fa­cil­i­ties. It com­prises a grand ball­room with 2,000 seat­ing ca­pac­ity and eight func­tion halls and also boasts a unique green event lawn over­look­ing the oval lawn. It is just 40 min­utes from the Kuala Lumpur City Cen­tre and Kuala Lumpur In­ter­na­tional Air­port and is eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble through the New Klang Val­ley Ex­press­way via the ded­i­cated Se­tia Alam In­ter­change.

The new 6,000sq m (64,583.46sq ft) hall is column­less with a height of 10m to 12m and di­vis­i­ble into two halls. In ad­di­tion, the car park at the Cen­tre will in­crease up to 1,800 park­ing lots ded­i­cated for event par­tic­i­pants. Be­sides, the ad­ja­cent Se­tia City Mall has ad­di­tional park­ing lots of 2,400 for a big­ger ca­pac­ity event. The brand new hall, opened since Novem­ber 2016 en­com­passes in­di­vid­ual dropoff ar­eas, VIP hold­ing rooms, re­cep­tion, or­gan­iser’s of­fice and three meet­ing rooms.

It would be able to ac­com­mo­date up to 350 booths for ex­hi­bi­tions, 4,000 peo­ple in ban­quet style seat­ing and up to 7,500 peo­ple in the­atre style ar­range­ment. This hall boasts its long­est par­ti­tion board in the coun­try that has been val­i­dated by the Malaysia Book of Records.

Tem­pler’s Ball­room: Tem­pler’s Ball­room (the Ball­room) is a true mas­ter­piece, rich in am­bi­ence and beauty. It is an ideal venue for con­fer­ences, meet­ings, sem­i­nars, wed­dings and more that can house up to 700 guests. The Ball­room can be fur­ther di­vided into two smaller ball­rooms cater­ing for 250 guests each and four meet­ing rooms com­ple­ment the main ball­room.

As a pre­lude to the main event, the pre-func­tion foyer boasts breath­tak­ing scenery.

The world-class con­ven­tion cen­tre com­prises con­tigu­ous space of 4,459sq m (48,000sq ft) flex­i­ble col­umn-free ball­room that can ac­com­mo­date 400 round ban­quet ta­bles or max­i­mum ca­pac­ity of 8000 in the­atre seat­ing.

The 13 meet­ing rooms, both on the lower and ground floors also al­lows guests to hold meet­ings or func­tions in a smaller group. Atop the con­ven­tion cen­tre is a 2.43ha (6 acre) green rooftop park, suit­able for soft out­door events. SPICE Arena will be con­nected to the SPICE Con­ven­tion Cen­tre via a cov­ered walk­way. It has played host to a se­ries of ma­jor events. It also pro­vides 10,000 ter­race seats sur­round­ing and is sup­ported by seven meet­ing rooms. It is by far the largest and most com­pre­hen­sive multi-pur­pose in­door venue in the North­ern re­gion of Malaysia.

The SPICE Aquatic Cen­tre pro­vides a choice of both wet and dry ac­tiv­i­ties, while SPICE Canopy is a one-stop life­style venue. Ad­ja­cent to the con­ven­tion cen­tre will be a busi­ness class ho­tel ear­marked for com­ple­tion in 2019 that will be well con­nected to the con­ven­tion cen­tre.
