Meeting planners give Indonesia confidence boost
 
Jakarta  (2007-05-07)

INDONESIA can expect a 30 per cent increase in the number of regional and international meetings in the first half compared to the same period last year.

Indonesia Congress and Convention Association chairman, Mr Iqbal Abdullah, said: "There are more than 200 events booked until June, 70 per cent of which are government meetings and the rest association and multilateral meetings. Of these, 80 events are congress or conventions which are being organised here for the first time."

Mr Abdullah projected these events generating spending of up to US$560 million, an increase of 30 per cent over the same period last year.

"Although the number is still below levels prior to the 1997/98 economic and social crises, this shows the improving confidence in Indonesia among international organisers."
