SELANGOR, 28 October 2022 – The Selangor State Government, through its official tourism promotion agency, Tourism Selangor, has announced the winners of the Tourism Selangor Pitching Competition 2022. With the theme ‘Tourism and Creative Industry’, this second competition was officially announced on 10th August 2022 and attracted over 42 submissions.
The Tourism Selangor Pitching Competition 2022 has the potential to make the state of Selangor, a significant tourist destination and a hub for Malaysia’s creative industry. The ten winners of the Pitching Competition for the year 2022, will receive a Certificate of Participation and an RM 10,000.00 Project Grant each.
Selangor’s domestic tourism sector has always been the priority for Tourism Selangor. Hence, opportunities for the public, community, and higher education institutions to submit ideas are being made available. There were proposals from 4 categories this year; specifically, 19 were submitted in the Heritage category, 10 in the Arts category, 4 in the Design category, and 9 in the Media category.
A similar effort was made by Tourism Selangor last year to revive the domestic tourism industry with the theme ‘Selangor State Domestic Tourism Sector Recovery’. This was further enhanced by the ‘Pusing Selangor Dulu!’ campaign and the announcement of Selangor as the most visited state in Malaysia in 2021 and able to attract over 10.2 Million domestic tourists to the state.
