Meeting and Conference Delegates will Largely Determine if Indonesia can Meet its 6 Million Foreign Visitors Target in 2007.

Bali News: 20% of Foreign Visitors to Bali from MICE Sector?
(9/15/2007) Meetings, incentive, conference and exhibition (MICE) participants are expected to represent 20% of all foreign visitors to Indonesia and Bali, according to the Director General of Marketing for the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Thamrin B. Bachri.

Although total foreign tourist arrivals through the end of July totaled only 2.5 million, Bachri remains optimistic that the targeted 6 million visitors for the entire year can still be achieved because of a surge in MICE visitors attending major conferences in Bali in the last quarter of 2007.

According to Bachri, the Government has designated ten areas of Indonesia as official MICE destinations, namely: Bali, Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Batam, Medan, Bandung, Surabaya, Makassar, Padang and Semarang. He said that each of these destination areas were capable of hosting meetings of between 2,000-3,000 participants, with Bali able to handle "six times those numbers."

Bachri's comments were made in Bali at a ceremony formally installing the Board of the Bali Chapter of the Indonesian Conference and Conventions Association (INCCA) and its new Chairman, Ida bagus Lolec Surakusuma.
