The intention of Bali to bid to host the prestigious gathering of tour guide professionals from around the world was revealed recently by the Chairman of the Bali Guide Association (HPI-Bali) - Madè Sukadana, following a meeting with Bali's Governor, Madè Beratha.
If successful in the conference bid, some 600 international guides would be expected to gather in Bali from the 40 member countries of the World Federation of Tourist Guides.
Both the Governor and Bali's Tourism Chief, Gedè Nurjaya, have pledge all possible official support should Bali be chosen as the site for the 2007 event.
