Thinking of travelling? You’re in luck, as the MATTA Fair is around the corner again! For the uninitiated, the MATTA Fair is an annual travel fair that is held nationwide to encourage the public to travel more, either around or outside the country. Organized by the ‘Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents’ (MATTA), the fair, which is happening this year from 11 to 13 March 2016 and 02-04 September 2016, offers some of the best deals for anything travel-related, such as tours, hotel stays and flight tickets. If you’re looking for a cheaper way to travel, then you can’t go wrong with a visit to this much-awaited fair.
Occupying around 25,000sqft of floor space in eight halls of Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) in Kuala Lumpur, MATTA Fair 2016 is divided into several sections: namely Asia, Europe, North America and South America so that visitors to the travel extravaganza can browse for deals and services depending on their intended travel destinations. Some of the biggest names in the travel industry such as Malaysian Airlines, Hertz and Berjaya are also offering special discounts on their products and services in conjunction with the fair.
