Penampang to host Sabah’s MATTA travel fair on May 10-12

22nd April, 2019

By PAUL MU

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah’s Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) Fair 2019, Malaysia’s largest nationwide consumers’ travel fair is back on May 10-12 at the ITCC, Penampang.

The much-anticipated travel fair will continue to meet and satisfy consumers’ demand by providing variety of value-for-money domestic and international packages, organising chairperson Alicia Gomes said yesterday.

“Over the years, our event has continued to grow as exhibitors from tourism related companies, including MATTA members have taken up 115 booths overall, compared to 102 booths last year,” Alicia disclosed.

As usual, she said this year participations are coming from travel agents and hoteliers from Sabah, Sarawak, and Peninsular Malaysia as well as several national tourism organisations (NTOs) from Macao and Indonesia.

MATTA Sabah believed the collaboration and support from exhibitors, sponsors, and Sabah Government as well as NTOs will bring greater success to the fair and will continue to contribute the growth of domestic and inbound tourism in our country.

MATTA Sabah also encouraged travellers to be equipped with sufficient travel insurance to protect themselves from unforeseen circumstances when holidaying abroad.

The Sabah MATTA Fair will start from 10am to 10pm.

During the three-day exhibition, she said visitors who spend RM500 and above will stand a chance to win lucky draw prizes ranging from return air tickets for domestic and international destinations sponsored by various airlines.

Other prizes include overseas ground arrangements, local hotel stays, discount vouchers on tours and many more. She said MATTA Sabah is also working closely with the local tourism institutions and during the fair, tourism students will be assigned to promote and manage the event to gain exposure and practical training.

Deputy Chief Minister cum Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Christina Liew has been invited to officiate the fair.

Also invited are MATTA president Datuk Tan Kok Liang, MATTA Sabah chairman Lawrence Chin and all the MATTA Sabah committee members.
