1Malaysia Year End Sale Shopping Packages Unveiled At PATA Travel Mart 2015
BANGALORE, 6 SEPTEMBER 2015:As part of its continuing efforts to promote awareness on the celebration of Malaysia Year of Festivals (MyFest) 2015 in India, Tourism Malaysia announced special packages on the “1Malaysia Year End Sale (1MYES)” at the PATA Travel Mart 2015 in Bangalore.
The packages were unveiled at a special dinner hosted for the travel trade by Tourism Malaysia’s Deputy Director-General (International Promotion) Dato’ Azizan Noordin. Dato Azizan is also the Chairman of PATA Malaysia Chapter and also for Government / Destination Committee.
“India is a significant contributor to tourism in Malaysia. In fact, India is the sixth top tourist markets for us. Last year we had 770,108 Indian visitors which is an 18% growth from 2013 (650,989). We are hopeful that MyFest 2015 will keep Malaysia as a top-of-mind tourist destination, encouraging Indian tourists to stay longer in order to enjoy the sale offerings nationwide,” said Dato Azizan.
Addressing top outbound Indian tour agents and updating them of new tourism developments and products in Malaysia, Dato Azizan emphasized that besides Shopping and Moto-GP, leisure and luxury holidays are also key focus areas this year.
Dato Azizan is accompanied by Malaysian sellers to promote the country to the global tourism market. Among the sellers include big names in the local tourism industry, such as Tourism Johor, Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA), Lexis Hotel, Tourland Travel, Borneo Nature Tours, Asian Overland, World Express, Planet Borneo Tours, Legoland Malaysia, Theme Attractions & Resorts, and Flexiroam.
Tourism Malaysia is also organising various programmes for travel trade players to meet up and network among themselves, providing Malaysia’s tourism industry players the opportunity to strengthen ties with their Indian counterparts at the PATA Travel Mart.
This year, the 38th PATA Travel Mart is attracting more than 1,000 delegates from over 60 countries and facilitating over 10,000 pre-matched appointments, as well as bringing together qualified international buyers and sellers for face-to face meetings, educational forums and networking functions.
