Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC) - An introduction

28th Apr, 2015

Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC) is one of Malaysia’s premier meeting and convention venues. Nested in an oasis of green parks, lakes and wetlands, it’s a carefully planned, high-tech centre for meetings of any types and shapes.

Located 20 minutes from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and just a stone’s throw away from famous hotel such as Putrajaya Shangri-La, Marriot Putrajaya and Pullman Putrajaya Lakesid, PICC will soon have its own dedicated hotel which will make the organisation of international residential conferences very easy.

The first convention centre to be awarded the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Best Practices Award by ASEAN in 2007, it has reaped many accolades ever since. Among them, let’s mention the Best Brands in Services - Convention Centre Award by the Asia Pacific Brand Foundation (APBF) 2013-2014 and the International Quality Crown (IQC) Award 2014 in the Gold Category.

Rising majestically from the top of Putrajaya’s highest point, PICC is both an iconic landmark overlooking Malaysia’s government headquarters and one that incorporates a modern, spacious and versatile design, architecturally and culturally meaningful.

Joining forces with Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) at overseas tradeshows, organising successful familiarization trips for conference organizers, PICC CEO Badlishah Ahmad says key target markets are regional markets, as well Europe and the US: ‘We can comfortably accommodate mega events of up to 8,000 delegates. Other facilities at PICC include a Plenary Hall for 2,800 delegates, a Banquet Hall for 2,500 people, two multifunction halls, 10 conference rooms and a VVIP Lounge’.
