Shopaholics rejoice…Malaysia’s annual shopping campaign for 2017 has kicked off with the launch of the National Sales Campaign which was at Suria KLCC, Kuala Lumpur.
The nationwide campaign is held three times a year and consists of the 1Malaysia Super Sale (1-31 March), 1Malaysia Mega Sale Carnival (15 June-30 August), and 1Malaysia Year End Sale (1 Nov-31 December).
Organized by Tourism Malaysia through its shopping promotion arm, Secretariat Shopping Malaysia, the annual campaign is part of the Malaysian Government’s ongoing effort to promote Malaysia as top, world- class shopping destination.
The launch was graced and done by the Minister of Tourism and Culture, Dato’ Seri Mohamad Nazri Abdul Aziz. Present at the launch, which also marks the beginning of 1Malaysia Super Sale, were 15 members of the media from Indonesia, Brunei, Thailand, India, China and Vietnam who participate in the Tourism Malaysia Mega Familiarisation Programme from 28 February until 3 March 2017.
Malaysia’s shopping branding is centred on the “Experiental Shopping” concept that showcases Malaysia as a fun and wholesome shopping destination complemented by plenty of entertainment and recreation activities, gastronomic adventures, luxury treatments and visits to popular tourists spots.
This of course followed by a lovely fashion show showcasing the latest styles from the very stylish Brooks Brothers….
This is of course made possible with the support of more than 500 integrated shopping malls and retail outlets in Malaysia…which seem to be steadily increasing. Some of the new retail and lifestyle hubs opening this year includes the KL Gateway Mall in Kuala Lumpur and Genting Premium Outlets in Genting Highlands, which will further stimulate Malaysia’s shopping scene.
