Targeting visa-free travelers in a nearby and affluent country, the Marianas Visitors Authority joined the Malaysian Association of Tour & Travel Agents Fair last March 15-17, 2019, in Kaula Lumpur.
The MATTA Fair is a bi-annual travel fair, with 272 organizations exhibiting at the Putra World Trade Centre. Participants included travel and tour agencies, national tourism organizations, hotels, resorts, theme parks, cruises and other businesses. An estimated 110,000 visitors attended the event.
This was MVA’s first time to participate in the MATTA Fair. The agency shared information about Rota, Tinian, and Saipan, distributed brochures, and answered questions. Those who scanned the QR code provided and then “liked” and shared the MVA’s Facebook page received an MVA-branded fan and other MVA collateral items. Concepcion also paid a courtesy call on travel agents at the fair.
The next MATTA Fair will be in September 2019. (MVA)
