MSC (Multimedia Supercorridor) Malaysia firm Creative Advances Technology's sixth SOTA Virtual Travel Fair includes an Android app to help travel buyers stay current with the latest deals.
The Virtual Travel Fair (VTF), which will run from 1-10 October, is themed 'Get Online, Let the Travels Come to You,' according to CAT chief executive officer Rohizam Md Yusoff.
"We have been organising the VTF since 2011 and in each VTF, we look to bring more and better travel deals to travel buyers. In the last VTF, we have hotel packages being offered by 150,000 hotels worldwide. In this VTF, we have added flight bookings to our stable of travel offerings," said Rohizam.
He said travel buyers could also download the VTF app onto their Android devices before the start of the fair.
"Ultimately, our aim is to let travel buyers get the best travel deals without having to go to get them but rather have the deals come to them instead," said Rohizam. "This is in line with VTF's proposition of 'No traffic jam, no jostling crowds and no hassle' when it comes to getting the best deals at travel fairs. With the strong response we have received for the past VTFs, we are hoping to see 100,000 online visitors in this VTF."
"We are delighted to have Emirates Airlines and Qatar Airways on board with us for this VTF to offer their flights," said CAT chief marketing officer, Joanna Liao. "In addition, I am also proud to announce that participating agents and hotels in this VTF are not just from Malaysia, but also from Indonesia, Nepal, Philippines and Thailand."
Visitors to the 'virtualtravelfair' website can start by participating in the VTF 'Tag the Bag' online game as prizes are given out weekly to the top three winners for five consecutive weeks prior to the commencement of the VTF, said Liao.
