The Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) is the first international purpose-built convention centre in Sarawak, Malaysia. Growing alongside Sarawak’s position as a captivating culture, adventure and nature destination on the exotic island of Borneo, the BCCK debuted in 2009, as a state initiative of the Sarawak Government to grow business tourism through the hosting of business events. To date, the BCCK has hosted close to 1,400 events and welcomed 1.7 million clients, delegates and visitors from various regions of the world.

Situated on the Kuching Isthmus and ringed by the Sarawak River, the BCCK is approximately fifteen minutes’ drive from the city centre and twenty minutes’ drive from the Kuching International Airport.

Conceived and built with nature and a green theme in mind, the Centre’s structural designs were inspired by the rainforest trees of Borneo with a roof akin to the native ririk leaf. Fulfilling both form and function, the building showcases its distinctive interior and exterior architectural features designed to deliver BCCK’s business purpose as well as the Centre’s commitment to environmental sustainability and conservation.

The BCCK epitomizes the progressive vision of the Sarawak Government to bring socio-economic progress to the state through new sources of growth. From its humble beginning, the BCCK is an exemplar in Malaysia of how a convention venue can rise to become an ambassador to promote its second-tier city. The Centre has received local, national and regional accolades for professional standards, innovation and best practices achieved within Malaysia’s business events industry, and for having the size and capabilities to handle the requirements of different conferences in a bespoke manner.
