About the last MATTA Fair: For the first time, the two biggest events in the Malaysian tourism industry has been combined. The World Islamic Tourism Mart (WITM) and the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) Fair will be held during the same 3 days at PWTC. This event is being touted as the number 1 travel fair in Malaysia.
The exhibition will occupy almost 28,000sqm and take up 4 main halls: Hall 1, 2, 3 & 4. There is expected to be over 1,250 booths and over 200 exhibitors, with travel agents accounting for about 750 of those booths.
The other booths will be taken by National Tourism Organisations and national airlines. Malaysia Airlines and Firefly will take up the whole Hall 1 mezzanine alone. Ministry of Indonesia, the official sponsor of the WITM will take up 30 booths in Hall 2.
This complementary event offers travellers an amazing opportunity to compare great travel deals all in one area. With the upcoming end of year school holidays coming, customers can expect to save a lot of money. This event makes it more convenient for travellers to take advantage of the huge discounts and promotions on offer.
In order to help travellers find what they want, each hall will feature different exhibitors. Hall 4 will mainly house the National Tourism Organisations with Japan, Taiwan, Korea and Turkey Tourism taking the most booths. Hall 3, which is the first hall you will walk through if you enter from the main building, is the domestic hall. As usual this hall is dominated by Tourism Malaysia with the rest of the hall being filled with local hotels and travel agents offering Malaysian packages.
Hall 1 is the largest hall and is nearby to Hall 2. Both halls sell international tour packages, cruise packages and flights. In the mezzanine, Malaysia Airlines and Firefly will be offering their best airline discounts and cheap flights. All types of tour offers will be available during the 3 days.
Entry will cost RM4 per person, with children under 12 years old being free. Over 100,000 people are expected to attend over the 3 days so crowds and long queues are certain. You can pre-buy your entrance tickets online to avoid the queues and save yourself some time.
