28 beauty queens from around the world vied for the coveted Mrs Tourism Queen International 2018, during a glamourous event at Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur on 30th August.
Prior to the finale, contestants were put through a rigorous training programme that encompassed strict discipline, styling and grooming to get them ready for the final showdown. In addition to physical beauty, they attended Encore Melaka in order to learn about creative tourism via a showcase using emotive storytelling, vivid stage settings, music and choreography.
With the aim of boosting the tourism sector, enhancing it with friendship and goodwill among the global citizens and foster greater international cultural exchange, it was an evening of keen competition which saw guests rooting for their respective ‘Queen’.
Mrs Malaysia Katrina Loo Siew Ling gave other contestants from Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania, a run for their money. The judges did not have an easy time naming the queen but it had to be done. Finally, it was determined that Mrs Brazil Ana De Backer was a class above the rest as she was crowned Mrs. Tourism Queen International 2018.
First runner-up was Mrs Mexico Nancy Cecilia Esparza Tinajero, followed by Mrs South Africa Lisinda Hodgskin at third place. Mrs Malaysia Katrina Loo Siew Ling clinched a respectable fourth placing.
Mrs Tourism Queen International 2018 was successfully organised by Sentinel Pageant. Malaysia, as host country for the inaugural edition of Mrs Tourism Queen International Pageant, marked a historical milestone in beauty pageantry in the country.
