~ Miss Tourism Metropolitan International ~

PAGEANT'S BACKGROUND

Beauty pageant organiser extraordinaire Datuk Danny Ooi is once again etching his mark in the industry with his conception of a new title: Miss Tourism Metropolitan International.

After having taken the world by storm with his two home-grown titles – Miss Tourism International and Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International – Datuk Danny Ooi is set to go one up on himself when his new pageant is staged in December 2007.

His years of experience and wisdom in organising beauty pageant have stood him in good stead in creating one title after another. Datuk Danny Ooi’s aim of initiating the first-ever Miss Tourism Metropolitan International is three-fold.

Firstly, he believes there are limited beauty titles in the industry, with much capacity for it to grow. Secondly, he wants to give more countries the opportunity to stage beauty pageants as he feels there is limited support, and always coming from the same group of participants. Lastly, a desire to create more career advancement opportunities for women and also help enhance their self-development skills prompted Datuk Danny Ooi to come up with the Miss Tourism Metropolitan International.

In tandem with this, more than 40 beauty queens from around the world taking part in the 13th Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International World Final officiated at the grand launching of the Miss Tourism Metropolitan International title at a Press conference in Petaling Jaya on Dec 18, 2006.

The Miss Tourism Metropolitan International pageant will undoubtedly create a positive impact on the tourism industry, with the country drawing global interest from the electronic and print media.
