Premier watch, jewellery event to net younger high-end travellers
New activities will feature in this year's A Journey Through Time, Asia’s premier watch and jewellery showcase held in Kuala Lumpur, to capture the interest of young collectors locally and abroad.
Highlights include an exclusive Omega watch exhibition, talks on how to build and start a watch collection which will appeal to new collectors, and seminars on the art of fine watchmaking and investment.
A Journey Through Time, organised by Starhill Gallery in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism and Culture Malaysia, is one of the events marketed by Tourism Malaysia and it draws high income tourists to the country. It will be held from November 20 to 27.
Inbound specialists told TTG Asia e-Daily that they are looking forward to the event to boost interest from their wealthy clientele.
Adam Kamal, general manager of Olympik Holidays, said: “We plan to use this event as part of our strategy to promote inbound luxury packages. A Journey Through Time has evolved to become a much awaited event for watch aficionados in Asia.”
Kamal, who is also the Malaysian Inbound Tourism Association deputy president ll, said the association distributes information on the event to its members to be used as a tool to further promote Malaysia as a destination.
Luxury Tours Malaysia senior manager, Arokia Das, added that "with the ringgit being so low now, this is an ideal opportunity to pick up good deals" at the showcase.
