Matta Fair To Be Carnival-Like Feel Fiesta For Visitors

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 4 (Bernama) -- In a departure from the norm, the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (Matta) Fair will be based on the concept of a carnival-like feel with a view to lure families.

Matta president Hamzah Rahmat said the three-day fair beginning 10am tomorrow, would be innovative, not only in terms of garnering sales but also in enticing families due to the year-end school holidays in November.

With character appearances such as Nobita and Doraemon, the fair would certainly have a fiesta-like atmosphere.

"With such concept, we are hoping to achieve a sales turnover of about RM150 million, based on 100,000 visitors turning up at the much-awaited fair," said Hamzah during a Matta Fair pre-event press conference here today.

The event will be held at the Putra World Trade Centre.
