MATTA Targets 80,000 Visitors To Exhibition

The Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (Matta) is targeting 80,000 visitors to its three-day fair and exhibition at the Putra World Trade Centre, here, starting Friday.

The organising committee chairman John Tan said more than 300 tourism organisations including tourism offices, travel agencies, hotels, airlines and other related companies would be displaying their products at 858 booths occupying a total space of 20,500 sq metres.

He told reporters here that three bridal companies tying up with travel agents offering wedding packages such as wedding photograph and honeymoon packages were expected to be one of the attractions at the exhibition.

Among the major exhibitors are Apple Vacations and Conventions Sdn Bhd which took up 36 booths, Taiwan Visitors Association and Culture and Tourism Ministry of Indonesia (20 booths each), and Tourism Malaysia, Sabah Tourism Board and Langkawi Development Authority (12 booths each).

SEDANIA Travelneeds2u Sdn Bhd, an MSC Malaysia-status company, will contribute 10 per cent from the sales of its Global Starter Pac (GSP) product at the fair to Rumah Anak Yatim Amal Kasih Bestari.

Its chief executive officer, Radzib Ariff, hoped that as a complement to the various travel services and packages, the product could attract travel agencies and the public to understand more about GSP.
