Some 6,600 international delegates â€“ who were in Malaysia for a high-powered fintech conference â€“ were treated to a 10-course dinner put together by the culinary team at the Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre (MITEC).
The feat was pulled off by a team of 930 people from the kitchen, service and stewarding divisions, who turned the venue from theatre-style to a banquet-setting in two hours.
To deal with the massive group, MITEC converted its Halls 9-11 on Level 3 to a satellite kitchen for efficient meal preparation and food presentation. The loading bay and Halls 6-8 on Level 2 were converted into a fruit orchard, where fresh Malaysian fruits were served.
Truly a project that is worth boasting, MITEC also served up a whooping six and a half tonnes of durians to dinner guests that evening – a likely first for the business events industry!
