How time flies, and before I know it, it is already a year has passed. Working like a dog, so time to take a break and head on to MATTA Fair 2012 and check out the latest travel and tourism promotion!

As per previous years, the fair would be jam pack with patron looking for the best deals to take a family vacation. Hey, it is no joke when you want to take your entire family for a vacation trip. And if you got school going children, the timing is also a factor for consideration. That means going for a holiday during school term break means the travel price will increase due to increase in demand!

MATTA Fair September 2012 in KL

For the rest of us who don’t have such commitment, we could try to go off-peak and save on the peak period prices. Coupled with MATTA Fair, perhaps get further reduction!

Apparently for this year, the organizers are scaling it down a little due to the ongoing poor economic crises in Europe. I’m sure the West would welcome our tourist dollars just so to boost a bit of their economy, yes?

The MATTA Fairs will be held in the following periods:

  • Ipoh, Perak at Stadium Indera Mulia 31/Aug to 2/Sep/2012
  • Ayer Keroh, Melaka at Melaka International Trade Centre (MITC) 31/Aug to 2/Sep/2012
  • Kuala Lumpur at Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) 7/Sep to 9/Sep/2012
  • Kuantan, Pahang at Kuantan Parade 14/Sep to 16/Sep/2012

Despite scaling down the event, it is still fairly large in PWTC KL. I have here the floor plan of MATTA Fair in PWTC Kuala Lumpur and it is taking up four halls! And that is certainly not small affair!

Another interesting feature is the smartphone application called eSales to browse through the KL MATTA Fair offering. The smartphone app was launched not too long ago and it will enable shoppers to look for deals before heading off to the fair.

Not a bad idea considering that the fair would attract about 80,000 visitors and trying to look through the 1,000 plus booth with such a big crowd is certainly not an easy task to do! If you ask me, I rather not go with the maddening crowd! But if you want to find a good travel and tourism deal, MATTA Fair 2012 is where we should head.

Best of luck, chumps!
