Industry prepares for Islamic tourism surge

The Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) is aiming to boost Islamic Tourism through its Islamic Tourism Expo 2019.

Held at the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) in Kuala Lumpur, the second edition of the expo aimed to expose MATTA members to the key sector in Islamic tourism, which is umrah and hajj, estimated to be worth around RM2bil.

With 200 participants comprising both buyers and sellers, MATTA is taking this opportunity to develop and grow Islamic tourism as well as facilitate the business of its bumiputera members.
