Cuti-Cuti Malaysia MATTA Fair to push domestic destinations
Time to pack your bags and cuti-cuti Malaysia 2020 because MATTA Fair has some great domestic deals lined up for you.
In light of the recent viral outbreak, MATTA will be organising the first ever MATTA Fair Cuti Cuti Malaysia which will be held on 4 – 5 April 2020 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC). Not only will this cure Malaysians' itch to travel but also help the local tourism industry recover after being hit by mass cancellations from the China market due to the virus.
MATTA President Datuk Tan Kok Liang says “In view of the current consumer sentiment, it is now the best time to hold a new MATTA Fair exclusively for domestic tourism that facilitates Malaysian holidaymakers to enjoy the many attractions and safe havens within the country, and for service providers to switch focus from inbound market to domestic.”
“The biannual Kuala Lumpur MATTA Fair will continue to feature both domestic and overseas travel. The next Fair, normally held in March, has been deferred to 1 – 3 May 2020 with the venue unchanged. As domestic tourism is now on everyone’s lips, the MATTA Fair Cuti Cuti Malaysia will be held earlier to meet consumer demand.”
“MATTA Fair Cuti Cuti Malaysia will be a great one-stop centre for foreign travel agents organising tours to Malaysia to view what exhibitors are offering and engage with suppliers directly. Many organisations have taken cognisance that Malaysia is a safe and secure destination. We are also rated in the top 10 percent as a peaceful country among 163 nations by the global Institute for Economics & Peace.”
“MATTA Fair Cuti Cuti Malaysia will be offering a great variety of new or interesting products allowing Malaysians with penchant to travel on holidays to discover, explore and enjoy with peace of mind. This is because our country had remained safe from all necessary measures taken by government authorities, which received commendation from the World Health Organsation (WHO).”
“Staging a successful domestic travel fair will serve as the best testament that Malaysia is safe for all visitors and this message should be conveyed to the world by all responsible media and tourism players. Regrettably, those fixated only on the negative have only been successful in spreading doom and gloom, and fear spreads faster than coronavirus,” concluded Tan.
