Two days of collaboration between the travel trade on March 31 and April 1, 2021, once again promises a great line-up of speakers at insightful sessions about the industry.
Tourism Malaysia will be the Diamond partner at the Gulf Travel Show 2021 with some of their key partners in their very own pavilion. Great success in 2020 with 30 plus exhibitors, 6000 one-to-one meetings, and 2,500 visitors from 59 countries which included travel agents, tour operators, tourism boards, airlines, hotels, travel management companies and international agencies encouraged the emergence of a second edition.
Shahrin Mokhtar, Director of Tourism Malaysia – Dubai, shared, “Tourism Malaysia is pleased to participate in GTS 2021 for the second year. Last year we have witnessed the success of GTS as an excellent networking platform that brought together the tourism industry virtually. This year Tourism Malaysia is back stronger as GTS’ Diamond partner with synergy between the three regional offices (TM Dubai, TM Jeddah & TM India), seven hotels and three tour operators. Tourism Malaysia is keen to keep the communication open with the trade partners in order to revive travel once Malaysia opens its borders. In GTS 2021 we are glad to announce our first unique digital press conference where the media will have the opportunity to interact with Tourism Malaysia senior officers and get updates on the latest products.”
Putra Hilmy Elias, Director of Tourism Malaysia, Jeddah
Gulf Travel Show is very important to show our continuous commitment in promoting and profiling Malaysia as the foremost holiday destination in the Middle East and North Africa markets. We will firstly pick up from our promotion activities which were halted last year. Then we will collaborate with partners in developing new holiday packages to Malaysia. Obviously there are new norms such as social distancing, avoiding unnecessary gatherings, and conducting virtual conferences and webinars. So our objective is that we need partners to convert our marketing efforts into sales.
