KUALA LUMPUR, May 21 (Bernama) -- The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre has been awarded the Bronze Level accreditation by the Healthy Venues organisation, marking it as the first venue in the country to receive the recognition.

The centre’s general manager John Burke, in a statement today, said the recognition, granted to venues that integrate wellness into events by prioritising healthier eating, movement and workplace health, underscores their ongoing efforts to enhance the overall delegate experience and meeting productivity.

“Reflecting our commitment to present the right environment for learning, business or leisure, this new milestone further strengthens our position as a world-class venue and industry leader on par with global standards. 

"Research has shown that healthy meeting environments can improve delegate productivity and leave them with positive experiences and memories of the events they attend,” he said.

Burke said to achieve the certification, the centre had to meet strict criteria, including adhering to national dietary guidelines in catering practices, offering a minimum of 25 per cent healthy menu options, providing low or no-sugar drink choices as well as free drinking water on-site.
