CEMS Malaysia launches the Malaysia Travel & Tourism Mart 2020

CEMS, Conference & Exhibition (Malaysia), announced the launch of the Malaysia Tourism and Travel Mart 2020.

The event will be held from 25 to 27 June 2020 at Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) in Kuala Lumpur. The show is supported by the Ministry
of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia.

The three-day trade exhibition will be a platform for international and local inbound and outbound travel operators and stakeholders to seek and realise opportunities in the international tourism and travel industry.

“MITEC applauds the launch of Malaysia Tourism and Travel Mart 2020, given its large multiplier effect, its significant impact towards the celebration of Visit Malaysia 2020 and its contribution to the country’s tourism receipts. MTTM will not only enhance Malaysia’s competitiveness on the global stage but also facilitate more cohesive private-public sector efforts to deliver more international and regional business tourism events into the country. We are very honoured indeed to
be the strategic partner for such a notable event and as the host venue for the first MTTM, we look forward to playing our part in ensuring a successful event, one that will undoubtedly enhance Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur and the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre's growing reputation as a world-class destination for exhibitions and international conferences,” said Mr Gunther Beissel, Chief Executive Officer, Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC).

Edward Liu, Group MD of CEMS, says: “In 2018, there were 25.8 million arrivals to Malaysia from various parts of the world1. According to a news portal, an estimated 11.9 million international outbound trips from Malaysia were recorded in 2016 and the number is forecast to grow by an average of 3.5 per cent annually to 14.2 million trips by 2021. It ranked Malaysia sixth highest among emerging markets. Malaysia’s outbound market is increasingly diverse and dynamic,” said Edward Liu, Group Managing Director for CEMS Conference & Exhibition Sdn Bhd. “The demands and expectations of travellers have also grown in sophistication over the years. MTTM 2020 will be curated and organised to provide exhibitors with a powerful and robust platform to reach and interact with their target audience.”
