Just got word that there will be a notable two-day conference followed by a prestigious awards ceremony that's all happening early next month.
I am more than honoured to be one of the official bloggers to represent and blog about the Malaysian International Tourism Bloggers Conference & Awards – an event of such a grand scale!
This global event for bloggers – organized by the Ministry of Tourism in association with Social Media Chambers – aims to honour and award tourism bloggers across the globe for extensively promoting tourism in Malaysia.
16 categories and 16 awards will be awarded to the most deserving travel bloggers who blog about tourism, tourist spots and share Malaysia in one way or another.
It's good to know that the government has acknowledged and is now riding on
the waves of blogging and social media! 🙂
Experience our city that never sleeps. Think : food, shopping & nightlife!
Immerse yourself in our cultural experience & getaways!
An excellent move to boost tourism in Malaysia, if I do say so myself.
The ministry aims to attract 36 million tourists, a goal targeted based on last year's 24.6 million tourists last year.
The two-day conference will be held on :
8th & 9th of May 2012 at Seri Pacific Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Do come! Registration is FREE
It's gonna be a very informational and enlightening session,
with international guest speakers as well!
Nominations have been closed and locked in – a whopping 100K nominated blogs in total!
Voting period has begun and closes on the 1st of May 2012.
All the best to all the finalists!
