Pioneers in escorted tours
The Globus family of brands is made up of Cosmos, Globus & Avalon Waterways. They offer great value,
experience and a world-class customer service that is simply unmatched. In fact, Cosmos and
Globus are pioneers in escorted touring, helping customers travel for more than 80 years.
Cosmos is at the heart of affordable touring in Europe and North America, with tours starting
from just RM210 a day on the 13D Grand Tour of Turkey. Affordable doesn’t mean compromising on
service, either: they have a 93% customer satisfaction rate. The packages include accommodation,
sightseeing and first rate tour directors, as well as selected meals.
For something extra, Globus escorted touring includes even more than Cosmos: centrally located
hotels, free wifi on the coach and even Local Favourites, such as staying in a French chateau for
the night. Globus is even more highly rated by customers, with a satisfaction rate of 97%.
Avalon Waterways, a premium river cruising experience, gives travellers a completely different
way of seeing the world: from the deck of a ship. Cruising the mighty rivers of Europe on award-winning
Panorama ships means the destination is brought direct to you, even still in bed! It is an inclusive
experience, from ship to shore, including free flow of regional wines and beers with delicious regional dinners.
About the MATTA Fair
The MATTA Fair happens twice a year at the Putra World Trade Centre, Kuala Lumpur
in March and September. Several other fairs also take place around Malaysia.
However the largest is in Kuala Lumpur. The MATTA Fair occupies over 20,500 square metres, filling 3 halls with travel companies, tourism bodies and hotels
all promoting their products. An estimated 80,000 travellers visit the fair every time to see the travel promotions on offer. This definitely makes the MATTA
Fair the largest travel consumer expo in Malaysia.
How to get there
The best way to get to Putra World Trade Centre on public transport is by RapidKL's Ampang Line. Alight at PWTC station and the MATTA Fair is just
a 2 minute walk from the station.
Who goes to the fair?
In 2012 Sedunia Travel ran a survey to find out about the kind of people who go to the MATTA Fair.
