  • Bsst experience ever.get to shake hands with PM. But damn I don't get to selfie with him.cause im shy katanye
  • 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)
  • One of the popular convention center for exhibitions due to its hall size and ease of access through major roads and rail network. However, the parking is slightly inadequate. The food here is slightly on the expensive side though not so tasty.
  • 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.
