Malaysia International Travel Market (MITM) is targetting RM20mil worth of sales during Johor MITM Travel Fair 2019.
Malaysian Chinese Tourism Association (MCTA) Johor chapter chairman Kelvin Ang said the three-day event from July 19 to 21 will be held at Level 2 and 3 Sutera Mall, Taman Sutera Utama, Skudai from 10am to 10pm.
“We have more than 25 exhibitors with 160 booths that offer travel packages for local destinations and overseas covering South-East Asia, Asia, Europe and the Unites States.
“We will focus on drawing tourists from Sabah and Sarawak to come to the peninsula,” he said in a press conference.
Ang said theme parks and unique locations in the peninsula must be promoted.
“Sabah and Sarawak have many beautiful tourist attractions, with both locals and foreigners flocking there.
“Now we want to bring them here as well,” he said, adding that a total of 30,000 people were expected to visit the fair.
“Johor is the first location for the fair that will also be held in Ipoh, Penang and Sabah in July and in Kuala Lumpur in August.
“A lucky draw with prizes totalling RM88,888 awaits visitors,” said Ang.
He said MITM had collected RM10mil last year.
He added that a travel company from Taiwan was also part of the fair and would promote unique villages in the country under the slogan “Jalan-Jalan Kampung in Taiwan”.-thestar online.
