The Malaysian Association of Hotels (MAH) Johor Chapter and The Iskandarian Newspaper have recently collaborated to bring local news to hotel guests in the comfort of their rooms.
“The Iskandarian newspaper is our very own home-grown newspaper catered only to the Iskandarian region and with news content that matters to both corporate and leisure travelers on what’s going on in Johor. There is no better way to let them know about us than to have it in the rooms where they stay while visiting Johor and which will definitely help promote local news, places of interests, leisure events that is happening and also investment opportunities,” said Ivan Teo, Chairman of MAH Johor Chapter.
Providing news online is the way forward, providing easy access via a QR code that guests can scan on their mobile phones upon check in.
“To roll out the collaboration, those who scan and download The Iskandarian online will be able to win over RM10,000 worth of prizes. Subscription is free and subscribers will be able to receive regular updates of news, happenings and goings-on in Johor and in particular, the Iskandar region which is the hub of business and activity in Johor,” said Edey Suresh, the Editor in Chief of The Iskandarian.
