Terengganu Tengah Development Authority (KETENGAH) general manager Wan Mat Amin Wan Daud said this was because the sales of products brought directly from factories had become the latest attraction for visitors at the festival, apart from its other activities.
"We have received positive feedback from visitors and the sales on the first day grossed around RM50,000. "Based on the encouraging response, we hope to rake in RM2 million before the festival ends," he told reporters here.
Wan Mat Amin said the target was achievable as the number of visitors at the carnival had been increasing since the Kenyir Elephant Village(KEV) was opened to public last Friday.
"Among the products on sales are apparels, sports equipment, luggage bags, crockery and electrical appliances and all stocks are being replenished following the strong demand," he added.
More than 50 activities have been lined up for festival and the Terengganu state government is targeting to lure 500,000 visitors to Tasik Kenyir which has 340 man-made islands in conjunction with 2014 Visit Malaysia Year.
