THERE was a sense of anticipation in the air recently when more than 100 exhibitors gathered at the Tun Hussein Onn Hall B of the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) for a briefing by the organiser and booth selection before the Matta Fair.
To be held from March 12 to March 14 at Halls 1, 2 and 3 of PWTC, the fair will leave visitors enthralled and excited with increased participation from national tourism organisations from 15 countries and more than 170 exhibitors.
Among the new attractions for the March fair include a Buyers’ Contest comprising giveaway travel vouchers worth RM5,000 for those who buy domestic packages worth RM200 and above, and a grand prize of RM20,000 worth of travel vouchers for those who buy travel packages worth RM500 and above.
“We are expecting more than 70,000 visitors this time as consumer sentiment improves and a projected recovery in the economy. With more competitive promotions from budget airlines and greater connectivity from more comprehensive airline routes and new travel destinations, we foresee a positive response from the public who wish to take a break from their hectic lifestyles.
“There are definitely more choices this time round,” said organising chairman Datuk Mohd Khalid Harun during the booth selection.
Besides joint promotions with partner airlines and sponsors, including free entrance for EON Bank Matta Card cardholders, fair visitors may look forward to international performances and a spectacle of various country pavilions displaying information on well-known tourist hotspots.
