KUALA LUMPUR: Travellers can expect better bargains for tour packages when the 18th Matta International Travel Fair returns in September. 

The fair, set to be held at the Putra World Trade Centre from Sept 17 to 19, offers visitors attractive travel packages and a wider range of selection under one roof.  

Organising chairman Ngiam Foon said the exhibition, themed “Your One-Stop Travel Focus”, would be giving priority to its members to participate. 

“We have participation from many state tourism offices and major theme parks like Genting, Mines Wonderland, Sunway Lagoon and A' Famosa. 

“We also have many major international airlines and national tourism organisations from Turkey, Korea, Macau, Taiwan, Singapore, the Philippines, Thailand and India,” he said. 

Ngiam said a turnout of 80,000 visitors and sales turnover of more than RM90mil were expected at the fair, which will feature over 100 exhibitors and 609 booths.  

He said the fair also promised travellers a more enjoyable shopping experience as the booths would be placed in a more logical manner, adding that the entrances at each of the halls would be opened up for the convenience of visitors. 

“Visitors can choose which hall to go to without having to walk through the other halls as required in the past. With this, the halls are expected to be less crowded, thus, making it more enjoyable to shop around,” he said. 

Hall Four offers domestic and Asean destinations while Hall Three is for international destination products. Hall One is a bit of both and other travel-related products. 

Ngiam said Matta would donate the money received from booth rentals to education foundations to help needy children.
