Japan’s world-class concert venue and event hall network Zepp will be opening its doors in Kuala Lumpur in the second quarter of 2022.
In a statement released on 29 November, it was revealed that Zepp Kuala Lumpur will be a part of the Bukit Bintang City Centre (BBCC) development, making it the 11th event hall for the Zepp Hall Network – a subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) Inc.
The network already has nine other outlets around Japan and another one in Taiwan called Zepp New Taipei.
“Zepp has come a long way since 1998,” said Akira Uehara, President, Zepp Hall Network Inc. “What started off as a venue to help artistes in Japan, has now grown to a business that offers solutions for various industries and events, be it corporate conferences, car exhibitions or weddings.”
“Our international expansion is also another way to help event industries worldwide to offer a one-stop solution for any mid-sized event. We are extremely pleased to be launching Zepp Kuala Lumpur this year. This all-new event hall will act as a cultural exchange centre between Malaysia and Japan.”
The upcoming 6,500 sq metres hall will house eight VIP boxes with private lounges and seating areas. The 2,500-capacity event space also offers the same top-notch facilities including high quality pre-installed lighting and audio equipment.
Additionally, Zepp Kuala Lumpur’s hall also serves as a one-stop solution for corporate events, fashion shows, TV and advertising recordings, dinner events, eSports tournaments, as well as martial arts performances.
Built on the former Pudu jail site, Zepp Kuala Lumpur will be the anchor for BBCC’s entertainment hub.
