FRANKFURT: Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board (Tourism Malaysia) is mobilising representatives of Malaysian hotels operating in Europe to promote Malaysia as an attractive destination.

Last week, Tourism Malaysia organised a successful meeting with 16 representatives of Malaysian hotels in Europe.

Syed Yahya Syed Othman, director of Tourism Malaysia in Frankfurt, told Bernama that he was 'extremely pleased' with the response from the representatives.

"I urge the hotel representatives to work closely with Tourism Malaysia and the airlines. All the representatives agreed to coordinate with Tourism Malaysia.

"We will organise roadshows in Germany this October.

"Most of the hotel representatives are in Germany, the biggest source of tourism traffic in continental Europe, though there were also others from other European countries.

Oliver Waidelich, managing director of German Association for the Caravanning Industry said, "CMT was an attractive showcase for the industry, which created desire for mobile leisure time and holidays with its displays.

"Both suppliers and exhibitors of accessories and camp sites are delighted with the high standard of visitors," he added.

Syed Yahya said Malaysia would organise a big gala dinner for the tourism trade, accompanied by entertainment to be provided by a dance troupe from Malaysia and Malaysian
