TIME 2013 will be bigger than before

Reinhard Hohler, Chiang Mai (04.10.2013)

This year's Tourism Indonesia Mart & Expo 2013 (TIME), otherwise known as "Pasar Wisata", will take place at the 4-star Grand Inna Muara Hotel Convention & Exhibition in Padang, capital of West Sumatra, on October 18-21, after the success of two consecutive shows in Bandar Lampung, capital of Lampung Province in the southern part of Sumatra.

TIME is an annual event organized by the Tourism Society of Indonesia (Masyarakat Pariwisata Indonesia/MPI) and supported by various shareholders of Indonesian Tourism including the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, the Provincial Government of West Sumatra, Association of Indonesia's Travel Agents (ASITA), Association of Tour Guides of Indonesia,  Association of Hotel and Restaurants (PHRI), as well as Garuda Indonesia.

TIME is the only international contract travel mart in Indonesia with a direct business to business concept. The event is a meeting place for those who sell tourism products and services of Indonesia (sellers) to the international market (buyers). TIME is Indonesia's only mart listed in the calendar of international travel marts together with ITB Berlin, WTM London, Arabian Travel Mart (ATM), PATA Travel Mart, and other similar world prestigious events. TIME 2013 will present all Indonesia's tourist destinations, including popular and newly discovered travel destinations, tourism objects, and new product developments.

Padang was chosen as the venue for this year, considering its relatively easy connections to neighboring countries as the Minangkabau International Airport serves direct flights to and from Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and Singapore. Participants and media delegates will also be introduced to the fascinating landscape of West Sumatra including Bukit Tinggi, Lake Singkarak, and the old mining town of Sawahlunto.

This year, the number of buyers are expected to increase to 83 from 28 countries; while the transaction value is projected to reach over US$19 million.

By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
