JOHOR BARU: Travel agencies and entrepreneurs have been asked to double their efforts to commercialise and promote their products in conjunction with the coronation of the Sultan of Johor.
State Tourism, Domestic Trade and Consumerism Committee chairman Datuk Tee Siew Kiong said the entrepreneurs should also use the official coronation logo for their products in order to be part of the historic event.
“The official coronation logo can be obtained from the coronation secretariat at Bangunan Sultan Ibrahim, Bukit Timbalan, as well as the Johor Tourism Department.
“There will also be an array of events taking place in conjunction with the coronation celebrations, including a decorated boat parade, a fireworks performance and the Coronation of Sultan Johor Sports Carnival,” he told a press conference on Tuesday.
Tee said the fireworks performance and boat parade, sponsored by Iskandar Waterfront Holdings, would be held nightly from March 23 to March 30 at the Danga Bay Johor Baru.
The sports carnival will take place from March 24 to March 29, while the “Jelajah Kemahkotaan Johor 2015” will include cruises to Johor Baru, Mersing, Kluang and Muar.
There will also be other beach sports activities at Danga Bay as well as tea ceremonies at the district level from March 24 to March 29.
