I personally praise Ministry of Tourism Malaysia and Social Media Chamber Malaysia for a successful conference that I think spark part of the participants to join onto the social media bandwagon especially on the two most talked about topic, blogging and twittering.
MITBCA2012 short for Malaysian International Tourism Bloggers Conference and Awards 2012 was held at Seri Pacific Hotel Ballroom, in Jalan Putra, Kuala Lumpur on 8 and 9 May 2012. More than 430 delegates were present and according to the organiser was oversold. Well, I think they did not expect there are so many social media enthusiast who are interested in tourism, around in Malaysia. However the conference did show that there are many people on social media and MOTOUR can be sure that they can spread about tourism in Malaysia through those social media rats who are willing to share what is in store around the country when tourism is at stake.
