Malaysia The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) has introduced a new concept providing an unusual and bold approach to stimulate ideas and productivity. With TenOnCall Beanie Experience, an unconventional and informal meeting format comprising big, comfortable and brightly coloured bean bags arranged in a customisable configuration, the out-of-the-box approach is aimed at encouraging further interaction between participants.
The TenOnCall offering is designed for meeting groups of 15 to 150 pax in any of KLCC’s 10 flexible meeting rooms. The package also includes free-flow lifestyle F&B selections from the in-house culinary team, audio-visual equipment, a standby technician and built-in LCD signage. Starting from RM140++ (USD$45.00++) per package, the KLCC also provides bean bags for rent at RM20++ (USD6.43) a day.

South Korea Coex, the convention and exhibition centre located in Seoul, is transforming its existing underground mall into an environmentally-friendly space under the direction of a new International Events Marketing unit.
Coex Mall will re-open in December 2014 with large luxury indoor and outdoor spaces accompanied by a variety of domestic and global outlets, cafes and eateries, with exhibition and convention facilities unaffected during the development.
Having international events previously managed by the existing convention and venue teams, the new Coex International Events Marketing Unit has been created to manage international events, overseas marketing and promotional efforts.
Three on Canton
Hong Kong The launch of Three on Canton, a dedicated dining and events space located in the Gateway Hotel, marked the hotel’s complete refurbishment last year. The third floor of the hotel has been entirely transformed to comprise a restaurant, stylish al fresco dining terrace, four exclusive event venues, a wine room and a cocktail lounge and bar.
Behind the highly-creative a la carte menu, which features a mix of Asian and continental influences, is executive chef Jason Green. This culinary mastermind has had a stellar background working in iconic hotels and restaurants from the Burj Al Arab in Dubai; Fortnum & Mason in Piccadilly; London Capital Club with multi Michelin star Chef Jean Christophe Novelli; and with Gordon Ramsay’s very first restaurant in London. Three on Canton also presents an array of live culinary zones spearheaded by a multicultural team of chefs.
Event organisers can make use of its four exclusive function rooms with names such as Noire, Turquoise, Ocher and Fuchsia, or leverage the largest al fresco dining area on Canton Road.
