Raziah heads Borneo Isthmus Development
Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

KUCHING: Datuk Raziah Mahmud-Geneid has been appointed as chairman of Borneo Isthmus Development Sdn Bhd.

The recently formed company will be involved in the management and operation of the new Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK), said in a press statement yesterday.

Meanwhile, Trevor McCartney was appointed as BCCK chief executive. McCartney is highly-experienced in the management of convention centres.

He was formerly the director of international sales and operations at Pattaya Exhibition and Convention Hall (Thailand), Edinburgh International Conference Centre, the International Convention Centre (Birmingham) and the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre (London).

Apart from his broad international convention centre experience, he also provided consultancy services for projects in Hong Kong and Dublin.

The state-of-the-art BCCK is developed on a six hectare riverfront site in Kuching at the cost of RM200 million and scheduled to be opened in June 2009.

The centre, which is the first dedicated convention and exhibition centre on Borneo Island, has a gross floor area of 36,500 square metres and is still under construction.

Once completed, it will be able to accommodate up to 5,000 people in a plenary session or 2,000 for a banquet.

The venue will be part of the development at the Isthmus that will feature a marina, office, hotel and residential accommodation, complemented by other retail and leisure outlets.

RM195m Kuching convention centre to open next August
Friday August 8, 2008
TheStar

KUCHING: The new Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) will boost Sarawak as a destination for conferences and events when it is completed next year.

Currently under construction, the RM195mil centre is scheduled to open for business in August 2009.

BCCK chief executive Trevor McCartney said the centre’s target market was international associations and corporations as well as local and regional organisations.

“We will initially target national and regional events while international events are our long-term target.

“For next year, we’re targeting 170 events ranging from banquets to meetings and conventions,” he said during a media briefing and project site tour recently.

Located on the Kuching Isthmus about 5km from the city centre, BCCK is the first purpose-built convention centre in Borneo and will accommodate up to 5,000 people in its Great Hall.

“The Great Hall can be divided to accommodate smaller conventions and exhibitions. Our target is events with 800 to 1,500 delegates,” McCartney said.

Other facilities include 14 meeting rooms, a restaurant called The Leaf which will serve international and Asian cuisines, a business centre and a covered carpark with 800 spaces.

McCartney said that one of the centre’s unique features was its roof designed in the shape of a leaf with environmental conservation in mind.

“Rainwater will run down a track on the roof to water features on both sides of the building where it will be collected and recycled,” he said.

Besides boosting the convention business in Sarawak, BCCK will act as a catalyst for development in the Isthmus area.

A five-star hotel, marina, shopping complex and office towers are developments planned for the area over the next 10 years, McCartney said.
