Located right in the heart
of the central business district of Kuala Lumpur, the spectacular
Times Square Hotel & Convention Center is already established
as a major venue for key conferencing and banqueting functions.
Sitting on top of the city with spectacular views, the Times
Square complex houses the largest indoor amusement park in Asia with
14 major rides and the largest shopping area in Asia with
900 retail shops and 65 food and entertainment outlets plus
an IMAX 3D and 2D theatre, and a 9-screen Cineplex. The adjoining
Times Square Hotel offers 900 luxuriously appointed suites, and
several international restaurants.
And Times Square Hotel & Convention Center
really means business when it comes to providing quality conference
and banquet facilities. As well as the pillar-less Manhattan
Ballroom that can accommodate up to 2,700 persons for a cocktail
reception and 1,400 persons for a banquet function, there are
the Pre-Function area and 7 Conference Boardrooms plus the
Foyer area available for functions of all kinds conference,
theatre, dining or cocktails. Total maximum guest capacity
for functions is 5,500 persons.

durability & ease of installation
The unique P800
comes with its own wall back-box, fabricated of robust
steel with welded corners for strength, and welded screw
lugs to prevent them being knocked out when clearing away
plaster after decorators have finished their work.
The box is pre-wired
with flexible wiring easily folded to fit into the box with
colour-coded cable markers, large earth terminals, built-in
fuse holder and high quality German made connectors. This
means that the electrician simply fits the wall box and
connects the building's wiring to the connector on the
back. Then, once the wall decoration is finished, the P800
dimmer is simply plugged into the back-box connector and
screwed into the back-box.
