The Venue

With floor-to-ceiling windows, 10 restaurants and spacious event space, The Hilton Sentral offered the perfect setting for this sales meeting. In the heart of vibrant Kuala Lumpur. The Hilton Sentral Hotel is located next to KL Train station and offers an express non-stop train directly to and from the airport which meant no transfers were required.

Challenges and Solutions

As with many international events, different time zones can pose a challenge to event organisers. Kuala Lumpur is 8 hours ahead of Ireland and  our event managers were challenged with organizing the event during Kuala Lumpur’s business hours. Excellent communication between our team in Dublin and the hotel and suppliers in Kuala Lumpur ensured the event ran smoothly.

This event also ran week after Chinese New Year when Kuala Lumpur shuts down to celebrate the holiday. Our event managers were highly organised and ensured event details were confirmed well in advance of this week. The Hilton Sentral team were excellent for our event managers to work with, they ensured each aspect of the event ran smoothly.
