Kuala Lumpur Centre powers up to celebrate sporting connections

Malaysia and Australia mark ten years of friendly rivalry

Spectacular displays created in the Centre

To mark ten years of sporting connections between Australia and Malaysia, the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre ‘amped up’ the venue to wow 1,000 guests  from the government, Malaysian society and the Australian community in Malaysia for the Australia Day 2017 celebration.

Now in its 10th  consecutive year and hosted by the Australian High Commission Malaysia and officiated by Malaysian Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities, Datuk Seri Mah Siew Keong and Australian High Commissioner to Malaysia, H.E. Rod Smith, the event was themed ‘Active Australia’.

The programme celebrated the role sport plays in both societies, the menu was tailor-made by the Centre’s 50-strong culinary brigade to match the theme, used premium Australian ingredients and featured 10 lively ‘Chef Action Stations’ and an innovative 3-metre boat-shaped buffet display. In addition, the culinary team fashioned five handmade ice carvings of iconic Australian animals and landmarks.

 The Centre’s operations team heightened the venue’s ambiance and décor to match the spectacular culinary elements with a gigantic eye-catching LED installation above the boat-shaped buffet centre-piece.
