  • gedungnya besar dan sangat bagus. kebersihannya terjaga dengan baik. sangat nyaman untuk berada lebih lama disana karena dekat dengan hotel dan mall juga. 
  • Reminds all other halls for conferences: modern architecture, a lot of colors, a lot of conditioning, little authenticity. But runs like clockwork: the activities are carried out on time.

  • Had a conference here. 2 days. Well taken care of. Slightly long walk to the hall but good seating. Very cold world conditioning. Food served, average 
  • Multiple large and comfortable halls to hold conventions, with easy access via public transport to the place (you can get there thru Star LRT, PWTC station stop)
  • PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION AVAILABLE. Get off at KTM Putra. Or also with monorail. Go and park at KTM Putra parking or Sunway Putra. Much cheaper.
  • One of the oldest areas in KL for mega large exhibitions like Car shows, Travel fairs, and the like. Accessible by LRT and a multi storey carpark is available opposite, with an interconnecting tunnel. Parking rates have escalated tremendously over the past 2 decades ever since it was privatised.
  • Expensive parking rate. Suggest park @ Sunway Putra Mall & walk to PWTC. PWTC Parking Rate @ First hour RM3.50 Subsequent hour RM2.00 per hour i) Attendees/Exhibitors with coupon RM12.00 per entry ii) Plaza Level 4 RM10.00 per entry iii) Compound of Tun Razak Hall 1 & 2 RM5.00 per entry
  • If you are here for any exhibitions, be sure to come early and you will be able to find some parking at the sides. You will have to pay them for a day though. Otherwise, take the public transportation like the monorail or LRT.
