“I actually feel safe being here.Everything is spaced out, giving me room while I look around.”
During the launching of the expo, Star Media Group Bhd group general manager Jason Yap said the expo was a one-stop shopping experience for home needs.
“Chinese New Year is coming soon. This is the best time to shop around. We have ensured a safe shopping experience as there will be a limited number of people allowed in at any one time.”
Penang Convention and Exhibition Bureau chief executive officer Ashwin Gunasekeran said it was important to host expos to bring different brands under one roof, making it easier for consumers.
“With all the guidelines and support system needed to ensure a safe environment, there is a lower calculated risk here, ” he said.
