  • This is Our Story

Meetings, conferences, events and exhibitions in all their forms are ultimately to serve only one common function. To bring people together, encourage conversation and create connections. Connections that will allow people to create ideas, share thoughts and collaborate.

As organizations around the world seek to be more innovative, and compete more and more on creativity, we approached the question of innovation from a totally unique perspective. Instead of exploring the capacity of an individual alone or in group to innovate, we try instead to identify the spaces that have historically led to unusual rates of creativity and innovation. Places such as the Coffee Houses during the age of enlightenment or the Salons of modernism. Spaces where minds serendipitously come together connect and produce great ideas. And with this in mind, we would like to introduce Borneo Convention Centre Kuching, the unique convention centre. A space created among the tranquility of the tropical rainforest where any distractions that will take focus away from simply being innovative are kept at a distance but yet still easily accessible. Being secluded however does not mean disconnection. The centre is equipped with the latest in communication technologies with wireless internet enveloping the whole area, cutting ledge LAN infrastructure and the latest in Audio/Visual technology to ensure any and all collaboration that happens inside, are widely visible outside. All this to realise the belief we have that collaborative innovation can be at its peak if held in the correct environment. Every part of BCCK is designed to be an environment for the inquisitive. An environment that encourages people to think broadly and generally about challenges and one in which participants can feel free to follow their curiosity. Equally important, it seeks to be an environment where people can connect with each other.

    The Raintree Restaurant Plays Cupid this Valentine’s Day


    KUCHING. 1 February 2017. Cupid gets down to the serious business of love and affection at The Raintree Restaurant at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) for the coming Valentine’s Day.

    Knowing the way to every man, lady and child’s heart, this 14 February, the little guy with a bow and arrow will lavish on valentines and loved ones a love-filled occasion replete with exquisite fine food from a six-course menu.

    “Come partake in this universal celebration of love at The Raintree Restaurant. Our Valentine’s Day dinner is crafted for two persons or more if you are celebrating with family members too. Whether you dine in a pair or in a group of three, five or seven, it will be our pleasure to include everyone in your circle of love. No one will be left out,“ said Eric van Piggelen, Chief Executive Officer of the BCCK.

    The Western set for two diners is priced at RM288.00 nett. For every group with an odd number of diners, the restaurant will serve the “odd” single set at RM150.00 nett (inclusive of the six percent government service tax). A surprise gift awaits every lady.

    Two incarnations of starter get the Valentine’s evening rolling: scallops tartare with lime and ginger flower jelly followed by baked oysters wrapped in puffy pastry with garlic-basil pesto.

    The honey orange sherbet adds zing to the palate, zesting up the appetite for more blissful treats from the skilful hands of the chefs at the award-winning restaurant.

    Grilled seafood with saffron-tomato bouillabaisse (seafood stew) makes a delightful soup that dazzles both taste buds and hearts.  

    The main course, the centrepiece of the Valentine offerings, has been thoughtfully designed with two options: slow-grilled fillet mignon served with poached asparagus, green pea mash and truffle butter jus or seared duck breast with butter squash risotto with a pomegranate salad and charred foie gras. Either option is an excellent choice in terms of what the ingredients and flavours offer; subject to personal preference of course. For those wishing to pair their main course with wine, red and white wines are available at a special price of RM 84.80 nett per bottle.

    Cupid wraps up the Valentine’s evening with strawberry trifle in champagne glass, an enchanting, heart-melting dessert, complemented by tea and coffee. The Valentine’s Day dinner will be served from 6.30 pm to 10.00 pm. Reservations can be made by calling The Raintree Restaurant on 082-392 988.
