PATA Malaysia Chapter (PMC), supported by Tourism Malaysia held an Inter-State Tourism Networking Session on 12 October 2019 at Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu and on 13 October 2019 at Primula Beach Hotel, Kuala Terengganu.
The Networking Sessions were basically aimed at providing a platform for travel trade participants from the PMC membership and other relevant stake holders to meet up and network with the local tourism players in Kelantan and Terengganu respectively, with the ultimate objective to explore/enhance business opportunities.
The events which attracted a total of 28 delegates from the Klang Valley, Johor and Kuching and over 40 participants from Kelantan and close to 50 participants from Terengganu, were a great success and provided an excellent opportunity for both teams from PMC membership/other stakeholders and Kelantan/Terengganu to network and foster closer business relationships.
The event in Kelantan was graced by YB Mejar (B) Dato’ Haji Md. Anizam Bin Abdul Rahman, Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Perpaduan Mesyarakat, Kebudayaan, Warisan & Pelancongan Negeri Kelantan who was represented by Tuan Hj. Azman Bin Mohd. Daham- Ketua Penolong Pengarah Perhubungan Awam, Majlis Perbandaran Kota Bharu Bandar Raya Islam.
Kelantan State Tourism hosted the Networking Session followed by a Welcome Dinner for the PMC delegates at the Maison Raja Rezza. They also gave a comprehensive presentation, providing an excellent insight on the tourism developments and attractions within the state which were very informative to our delegates.
YB Mejar (B) Dato’ Haji Md. Anizam Bin Abdul Rahman who was away in Kuala Lumpur for an urgent engagement could not participate in the business networking session but joined us later at the hosted fellowship dinner at Maison Raja Rezza upon returning from his trip.
Min House Camp, Loggins and Mak Yong from Kelantan and KidZania Kuala Lumpur did a brand showcase presentation each to update delegates on their product offerings, facilities and services which were very informative to all delegates and participants.
