Recently, the world-leading travel activities and services booking platform held Malaysia’s first-ever mobile-led Travel Fest with more than 20,000 attendees at the Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre (MITEC). The two-day travel festival on 28 and 29 September had attendees bring home more than 22,000 booked activities and services via Klook’s mobile app.

As the travel fest was organized to disrupt the traditional travel fair experience, customers can actually purchase e-tickets, ranging from popular theme parks, tours and travel essentials via Klook’s mobile app without the hassle of queuing. On top of that, there were also onsite limited flash deals made available every half an hour alongside Insta-worthy booths, interactive games and educational sharing sessions by celebrities and influencers.
