In 2017, a total of 41 guests from eight countries participated in two Mega Fam events. 10 guests were representatives from travel agencies, 29 were media representatives, while two were corporate guests. The Mega Fam programme generated RM2,619,899.73 worth of commercial value from 25 published feature articles in international publications, 28 documentaries and online media broadcasts.
