Borneo Convention Centre Kuching

KUCHING: Borneo Convention Centre Kuching ( BCCK ) is now even closer to Kuching city and the following key residential areas of  after the opening of the Isthmus Bridge in November 2012.

Isthmus Bridge
The bridge, built over the Sarawak River, effectively links Pending region/Kuching Port Authority with the Isthmus region providing easy access to Borneo Convention Centre Kuching ( BCCK )  and the Industrial area of Demak Laut. Travelling time between the city and key residential areas is now around 15 to 20 minutes.


Before  the opening of the Isthmus Bridge, visitors to the convention centre were challenged when travelling through the Bintawa Industrial Area. In addition to the new bridge, clear signage has been erected to guide visitors to the convention centre.


Kuchingnites now enjoy a leisurely drive and enjoy delicious meals at BCCK's Raintree Restaurant which overlooks the verdant wetlands. Additionally, beside the Great Hall, the convention centre offers 14 meeting rooms ranging from 76 sqm to 453 sqm which are perfect for smaller meetings, training and social events.

BCCK commenced full scale operations in October 2009 and since opening, more than 400 events have been hosted and over 628,106 visitors have been welcomed to the centre. More than 30 functions have been catered to at outside locations.

The most recent international event held at BCCK was the 14th Asia Pacific Congress of Paediatrics & 4th Asia Pacific Congress of Paediatric Nursing which attracted 1240 delegates in September in 2012.

This new Centre  is being built by  Government of Sarawak on a site at the Kuching Isthmus.

Construction work on the 200 million Ringgit Malaysia (RM), centre is proceeding on schedule with an opening date in June 2009. Appropriately, for the first dedicated convention and exhibition centre on the mystical island of Borneo, the new centre’s environmentally conscious design is inspired by the surrounding rainforest.

A major element in the convention centre design is its roof structure. The roof is shaped in the form of a “ririg” leaf, a rainforest plant that plays an important daily role in the local indigenous cultures. Rainwater will automatically be channeled down the central vein of the leaf on the rooftop and collected for irrigation through a sub-surface ecological drainage system.

Kuching is gearing up for an enormous growth spurt at the moment with major investment in new hotels, shopping centres and improved ground transportation. This is  the first Dedicated Convention Centre to be built in Asia.
