MATTA

Today, Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) boasts a membership of over 3,100 members, comprising of local tour and travel organisations, as well as numerous overseas affiliations. It is also the national umbrella representative body for the entire travel industry within Malaysia. With a full-time secretariat headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, MATTA has state chapters in Kedah, Penang, Perak, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Melaka, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang, Terengganu, Kelantan, Selangor, Johor, Sabah, Sarawak and Labuan.

MATTA's objective is to promote the interests of the travel and tour industry in Malaysia. As such, the association works closely with the Ministry of Tourism and Culture and the Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board (MTPB) to organise fairs, seminars, conventions and workshops — both to create public awareness of the tourism industry and to benefit its members.
