The recently concluded Malaysia Fest 2017 attracted a larger number of visitors, drawing more than 100,000 people. It ended on a successful note and featured the very best of Malaysia in terms of food, fashion, beauty, travel and culture from more states than before.
The four-day event held at the Singapore Expo, Changi from Aug 10, witnessed the participation of Sabah, Perlis, Kedah, Penang, Perak, Terengganu, Pahang, Selangor and Melaka.
MegaXpress International Pte Ltd hosted the Malaysia Fest for the second time with the support of the Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (FAMA) and Agrobazaar Malaysia as partners.
MegaXpress International Pte Ltd Managing Director Hamzah Abdullah, while speaking to Bernama news agency said, “The response was beyond our expectations. This maybe due to the increase in the number of states taking part this time around.
“We brought uniqueness like food from every nook and corner of Malaysia. Singaporeans looked forward to the Malaysia Fest as we assembled nearly all states under one roof. So, they did not have to travel to Malaysia to sample the dishes.”
MegaXpress also introduced regional segmentation, with the northern region fully represented by Perlis, Kedah, Penang and Perak, he said, adding that nevertheless, Terengganu still dominated the event, having taken 80 of the total 240 booths.
