Mid Valley Megamall is a shopping mall in Mid Valley City, Kuala Lumpur. It sits at the entrance of Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur. Developed by IGB Corporation, this complex was opened in 1999.

It comprises a shopping mall, an office tower block, 30 offices, and three hotels. A second mall, The Gardens Mall, is adjacent to the Megamall. The mall has 4,500,000 sq ft (420,000 m2) of total floor area, out of which 1,700,000 sq ft (160,000 m2) is leasable space. This whole area is sometimes referred to Mid Valley City.[1]

The mall draws large crowds all throughout the year partly due to the amount of shops and variety available.[2] There are many dining options available as well.[3]

It houses a 48,300 square foot (4,500 m²) convention centre and it is adjacent to a 646-room business hotel named Cititel Midvalley. A further two hotels are in the same area: The Boulevard Hotel, The Gardens Hotel and Residences. There has been a proposal to link Mid Valley Megamall and Masjid Jamek via a 5.5 km bicycle lane.[citation needed]

It was awarded Best Shopping Complex Award 2000 by Tourism Malaysia and Best Retail Development 2001 by FIABCI Malaysia.[4]

In recent times the mall has received a lot of media attention with events like the IT Fair, Home and Decoration Fair, The MATTA Fair being held in the Exhibition Center.[5]
