  • Parking is difficult. Access to convention center is a far walk. Very inconvenient during rainy day. Facilities are too old, not well maintained. Dinning in house is expansive, food offering are very limited. Toilets are few & dirty
  • Most exibitions are held there (like there are no other place to hold an event 😠) parking is limited since the car park opposite PWTC has been demolished. If you get a parking, you will pay through your nose. Best is to take the LRT. Weekdays traffic is crazy.
  • Was here for a conference. The place needs more obvious parking signage. But the location and facilities were great. Should be 4.5 stars
  • No matter how big the event being held here, parking is never a problem. Kudos to that 👍🏻
  • This place is mainly a big convention center but not only. Small shops and some restaurants.. Connected with hotel and close to shopping mall.
