Record Attendances Expected For Bali And Beyond Travel Fair

Organisers of the 2018 Bali and Beyond Travel Fair are expecting record attendances at the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Centre in Badung regency from June 26-30.

The target for this year fair is more than 400 participants eclipsing the record attendance last year of 200 from 38 countries. Buyers from more than 42 countries had registered earlier this month as well as a big contingent of media covering the event indicating a record attendance for this fifth annual fair.

Industry sellers, buyers and media will converge on the popular Indonesian region to preview new products and re-visit some of the iconic destinations, landmarks, history, culture and exhibits on offer.

BBTF will reunite many international tourism industry leaders gathered for a series of speed-dating-style appointments. International buyers seek the best-matched Bali and beyond tourism sellers. The event will also feature sellers from China, India, Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, as well as Middle Eastern and European countries.

Meanwhile, buyers will be divided into two categories, namely fully hosted and partially hosted. The former comprises tour operators who can bring in 10,000 travellers to Bali with the average expense of US$ 1,265 each per visit. Tour operators in this category will have most of their expenses covered, including full accommodation, air travel and meals.

Organised by the Regional Representative Council (DPD) and the Association of Indonesian Tour and Travel Agencies (ASITA), the travel fair will focus on “Exploring the Colours of Indonesia.” In addition to promoting Bali, the event will also highlight Indonesia’s 10 most recommended and popular tourist destinations, as well as the archipelago’s cultural diversity. Delegates from 21 provinces have indicated they will be on hand to promote their respective regions.

The Bali Tourism Board’s head of tourism, Ida Ayu Indah, said “The event will help sell tour packages that cover tourist villages. This will empower the villages and give the travellers a unique experience.”

This year, ASITA will be cooperating with Badung regency officials as co-host. The Badung regency Tourism organisation provides funding and covers promotional expenses.

Badung Regency

The Badung area is a regency of Bali, Indonesia. It has undergone a population boom in the last decade and has grown into the largest of the suburban regions of Greater Denpasar. It covers Bali’s most heavy tourist regions, including Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Jimbaran, Nusa Dua, Canggu, Uluwatu, Badung, and Mengwi. The northern part of the regency is relatively unpopulated, and the part near the coast and west of Denpasar from Jimbaran and up to Canggu is heavily populated. Ngurah Rai International Airport is located within the Regency.

All the Fair delegates will be accommodated in the area which has a myriad of luxurious hotels.
