The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre is a convention and exhibition centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and part of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre precinct, known as KLCC. Designed to be a "city within a city" this 40-hectare (99-acre) site includes the 50-acre (20 ha) KLCC Park and the PETRONAS Twin Towers.

Hosting conferences, exhibitions, seminars, meetings and entertainment, the Centre is placed alongside public transportation and hotels.

The Centre achieved HACCP certification in December 2006, and in February 2007 became the first convention centre in Asia to achieve 'Benchmarked' status by Green Globe, the global Benchmarking, Certification, and improvement system for sustainable travel & tourism.[citation needed] Aquaria KLCC, a 60,000 square feet (5,600 m2) underwater park is located beneath the convention center.

The convention center will host the 127th IOC Session in 2015 where the IOC will elect the host city of the 2022 Winter Olympics.[1]
