Datuk Jimmy Choo will be speaking at a seminar on shoes and health, and showcase 10 of his best creations at the inaugural Malaysian Shoe Festival!

The masterplan for this idea, said Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen, was to expand the RM1 billion local shoe industry and attract foreign tourists to spend in Malaysia, especially during the Formula 1 Grand Prix period.


"We not only want them to attend the F1 race, we also want them to spend money. Last year, the F1 weekend spending totalled RM64 million. We want to see more of that. In Asean, there is no shoe festival and Malaysia's shoe industry is quite big although we are not aware of it. We want to develop this as an economy. We have Datuk Jimmy Choo, nobody else has Jimmy Choo."



Date: 2-4 April 2010
Venue: Putra World Trade Center

We'll pass out meeting Jimmy Choo!

PS: 'Datuk' is a Malaysian title, equivalent to a 'Sir'.
And he is a Malaysian!
