  • Hard to find parking lots after 9am,very easy to find the place but not easy to park inside.
  • Near Sunway Putra Mall and LRT&KTM, it's suitable organise exhibition here.
  • Attending book and furniture fairs are convenient here as one can go there by KTM Komuter or LRT.
  • Was there for Mood Republic. That was awesome. But I still fattah hati I didn't get to meet my captain ejaz.
  • Very popular exhibition centre within an integrated development. There are three halls spread over 3 levels. The exhibition centre is separated into two parts by the Klang river and you can access it via a covered overhead bridge. The halls are huge and has a high ceiling. Air conditioning is not that good when too mamy crowd.
