Virtual Travel Fair Let Travel Deals Come to You Sixth Virtual Travel Fair Now Available as an App and Offers Flight Deals
Kuala Lumpur, 25 September 2013 – SOTA’s Virtual Travel Fair (VTF) is back to tantalise travellers with more attractive travel deals and packages. Aptly themed “Get Online, Let the Travels Come to You,” the sixth VTF will run from 1st to 10th October 2013.
“We have been organizing 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 Md Yusoff, Chief Executive Officer of Creative Advances Technology Sdn Bhd (CAT), the company that developed SOTA.
Rohizam added that starting with this VTF, travel buyers can also download the VTF app on their Android devices prior to the commencement of the fair, so they can get alerts and notifications on travel deals and offers once the fair starts.
“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. 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”, he said.
Joanna Liao, Chief Marketing Officer of CAT said, “We are delighted to have Emirates Airlines and Qatar Airways on board with us for this VTF to offer their flights. 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”.
She added that there will be value deals below RM500 for travel packages in the VTF and also e-auction for travel packages, theme park tickets and hotel accommodation, starting from a bid price of as low as RM10.
Visitors to the VTF website, www.virtualtravelfair.com can start by participating now 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. Prizes of the online game consist of hotel accommodation both in and outside Malaysia, with the grand prize being economy flight tickets to anywhere in Europe for two persons, sponsored by Qatar Airways. There is also an in-game bonus prize of an 8-day Nepal Explorer package sponsored by Mountain Adventure Trekking Pvt Ltd.
“With all these irresistible prizes and offers, we hope travel buyers will get online, get hold of the travel deals at the VTF and win some great prizes at the same time”, ended Liao.
There is a growing trend towards online travel buys among Malaysian consumers as demonstrated by the strong increase of online visitor’s to SOTA’s fifth Virtual Travel Fair (VTF) that had concluded recently.
The Fair in March 2013 saw more than 70,000 Visitors come in and generating a combined enquiry value of RM14 Million.
According to Rohizam Md Yusoff, CEO of Creative Advances Technology Sdn Bhd, the developer of SOTA, the response was amazing as they experienced almost twice as many daily visitors and a triple digit growth of 131% in travel package enquiry value, as compared to the 4th VTF that was held last September.
