The three-day event is organised by Reed Exhibitions and supported by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, MyCEB, Tourism Malaysia and State Tourism of Penang.
The event will take place at two different locations in Penang — the Eastern Oriental Hotel and the Straits Quay Convention Centre.
Welcoming all buyers and sellers of the WTM Connect Asia 2016, Tourism Malaysia Director-general Mirza Mohammad Taiyab said, “Malaysia is a multi-cultural and diverse destination that offers the perfect combination of business and leisure experience to all visitors.”
“Penang’s vibrant culture and heritage, delicious food, beaches, unique architecture, and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) World Heritage site attraction in the capital city of George Town will showcase the Malaysia Truly Asia brand perfectly.
“It will certainly be a charming and wonderful introduction to the rest of Malaysia for the delegates of WTM Connect Asia,” he said.
In a statement, Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) said the event would offer a unique one-to-one format targeted at the booming Asian leisure travel market, and allowing exhibitors to exclusively meet with elite international hosted buyers.
