TOURISM MALAYSIA PARTNERS WITH GOPRO TO CELEBRATE THE BEAUTY OF LOCAL LIFESTYLE AND TRAVEL THROUGH A VIDEO CONTEST ‘DREAM MALAYSIA CHALLENGE’
KUALA LUMPUR, 11 March 2021 – In an effort to promote Malaysia as the preferred destination and to boost domestic tourism, Tourism Malaysia has partnered with GoPro to bring forth a new social media challenge targeted towards all residing in Malaysia who captured their amazing travelling moments.
Titled ‘Dream Malaysia Challenge’, this challenge entails participants creating and posting a video highlighting the various breathtaking attractions within Malaysia that they have previously visited. Participants will get the chance to be rewarded with the latest GoPro HERO9 Black, GoPro MAX, GoPro HERO8 and amazing full board stays at Taman Negara, Gopeng Glamping Park and Tadom Hill to experience Malaysia’s beauty and wonders.
The partnership with GoPro has come at an opportune time where Malaysians are eagerly planning for their next travels. It is a way to remind Malaysians that they never have to travel too far to find exciting destinations and this challenge does exactly that. Tourism Malaysia couldn’t be happier to partner with the world’s leading action camera brand to see what Malaysians could capture from our diverse and unique destinations in Malaysia.
GoPro Southeast Asia’s Marketing Manager, Sangeet Singh, detailed his excitement for this partnership, “We can’t discount the importance of domestic travelling, we are thrilled to be working with Tourism Malaysia that has been devoted to building up Malaysia’s culturally rich and stunning destinations while supporting local businesses. We are looking forward to seeing how creative participants will get with their video submissions for this challenge!”
