BUYERS and media attending Tourism Indonesia Mart and Expo (TIME 2002) in Jakarta will also be hosted at the Majapahit Travel Fair in Surabaya.

TIME 2002 will take place from September 3 to 8 at the Jakarta Convention Centre, with business sessions ending on September 7. Following that, buyers and the media will be flown the next morning to Surabaya to attend the two-day East Java regional travel fair.

TIME 2002 chairman, Ms Meity Robot said: "The Majapahit Travel Fair was held earlier in 1999 and 2000. Now, organisers realise it would be more beneficial to hold it in conjunction with TIME. Buyers just don"t have the time to make several trips to Indonesia to attend provincial marts."

Mrs Robot also said she would be looking into initiating a "Feature Destination" concept from next year. Provinces must bid to highlight their tourism potential as the "Feature Destination".

Event organiser PACTO Convex"s managing director, Ms Susilowani Daud, said: "We are targeting at least 200 buyers, 30 per cent of whom will be new, to match against 200 seller booths in scheduled business appointments."

Last year, buyers numbered only 108 as Indonesia also hosted the ASEAN Tourism Forum in January, a bare 5 months after the September 2001 TIME.

TTG Asia is the sole official daily newspaper for TIME this year.
