Visitors have become so accustomed to this travel fair, that many will wait for the Matta Fair to book their year-end holidays. Most of the consumers will survey the destination they want, before purchasing the packages from the various travel agents.

As the Matta Fair September 2017 is so huge, there are four main halls dedicated to individual travel destinations. For example, there is a Malaysian Hall, selling all kinds of travel packages around Malaysia.

At the Malaysia Hall, you will also find local theme park operators selling entrance tickets or full packages which include hotel stays. Some other tourist attractions will also be seen selling admission tickets.

For those wanting to explore the ASEAN countries, this where you should head too. And with this year being Visit Asean 2017, there are sure to be a lot of special deals and packages available.

The following hall will be focusing on the long haul international countries. Here, you will find cruise companies, airline ticket counters and tourism boards promoting their destinations.

The main hall will be the largest hall promoting popular destinations like Japan, Korea, America, United Kingdom, Africa and so on. This is where you go if you have been planning that family trip to Japan or Korea.

And for the Muslim travellers, you can find some of the best travel packages for those wanting to experience another country and yet have Muslim facilities. Packages include Halal food and prayer rooms with stops for prayers.

At Hall 1M, which is the mezzanine floor, you will find the Umrah Packages sold by the Muslim travel agents.

This upper-level hall is where the main stage area and also the food and beverage area will be located. The hall is just above Hall 1, the international hall.

Most of the promotions offered are only available at the Matta Fair. This means, when you see a package being offered, you will most likely not find it after the event.

The most common procedure or tactic consumers will use is to do window shopping before actually buying a package.

Example: If you want to visit Japan on a budget, you will start going to the booths that sell Japan packages.

You can also visit the Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) booth to get more information about where to go in Japan. JNTO does not sell packages, but they provide information from all over the country.

They invite different prefecture tourism organizations to come and showcase tourism products for each of their areas. Let's say, you have the interest to visit Okinawa, you will have to go to the Okinawa Tourism booth to obtain information about the exotic Japanese Island.

Then after you have got the information needed, you proceed to any of the travel agents that sell Okinawa packages and buy it from them.

Final Thoughts to the Matta Fair September

I have been going to the Matta Fair for many years and every year, the fair seems to be getting larger and larger. More people are visiting the travel fair where a majority are those aged 30 and above.

However, there has been a dip in travel purchases, due to the growth of the online industry. Many consumers are now turning towards online travel packages, flight tickets and accommodations nowadays and the numbers are growing.

There has also been a strong influence of foreigners visiting the Matta Fair 2017 to buy international flight tickets and also travel packages, as it is sometimes a little cheaper. This works well for those who are confirmed to travel on a particular date.

For anyone who has not been to Malaysia's largest travel fair, this is a good opportunity to visit the Matta Fair in September 2017. Who knows what you will learn or even buy there.
