The annual travel fair, Bali & Beyond Travel Fair, is recognized as Indonesia’s largest travel fair that focuses on promoting the tourism in Indonesia to the world by bringing together buyers and sellers together in a single B2B (business to business) forum. This year, the fourth BBTF will be held once again in Bali, Indonesia’s gateway of tourism to the world, from June 7 – 11, 2017 at the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Centre, ITDC, Nusa Dua.
Choosing the theme “Meet, Connect and Explore the Archipelago”, the committee is determined to increase the quality of the event by adding several activities that would be beneficial for all the participants of BBTF.
Recognizing the needs of hotels, resorts, tour operators and the government instances to reach out to the media, BBTF 2017 will open several presentation slots for the participating sellers. Last year, the event hosted over 80 media, national and international, both print and online media. Interested sellers will have the opportunity to an hour presentation to the visiting media, sharing updates, news and other newsworthy information for them.
NEW DESTINATIONS DISPLAY BY MINISTRY OF TOURISM
The Ministry of Tourism announced 10 new priority destinations beyond Bali in 2016 and during BBTF 2016, the ministry held a seminar to discuss these destinations and the plans of developments in several destinations. For BBTF 2017, the ministry will set up an exclusive area to showcase these new destinations to give more information about the destinations to the visitors of BBTF.
POST TOUR PROGRAMS
BBTF 2016 introduced several post tour programs for hosted buyers and media to get an up, close and personal experience to selected destinations in Indonesia. This year, BBTF 2017 will offer a similar program to different regions in Indonesia, including South Sumatra, Komodo Island and Yogyakarta to name a few. The Ministry of Tourism through its local instances within each region will host these programs.
Alongside these exciting upgrades, the committees of BBTF 2017 are still working on several more additions to the program. For more information and updates, please visit bbtf.or.id
