Tourism Indonesia Mart & Expo (TIME) will return to the Royal Central Java city of Yogyakarta September 23-26, 2005 marking the 11th time the professional travel fair has been held by the Indonesia Tourism Promotion Board (ITPB).
Headquartered at the Joga Expo Center (JEC), the event offers an outstanding "one-stop" networking experience for professional buyers of travel products to meet with hotels, attractions and tour operators gathered together from all of Indonesia's 33 provinces spread across more than 17,000 islands.
Scheduled purposefully to precede the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Travel Mart in Kuala Lumpur September 27-30, 2005, the organizers are hoping that world-wide travel buyers will make the short pre-PATA detour to Royal Sultanate of Yogyakarta to participate in TIME-2005.
The Jewel of Central Java
Yogyakarta – one of Indonesia's most culturally rich cities – is quickly becoming a favorite destination for international travelers. With a large number of connecting domestic flights from major Indonesian gateway cities, Yogyakarta's Adisucipto Airport is also now internationally connected with direct flights from Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. Once on the ground, visitors will find a wide range of styles and prices in local accommodation - ranging from traditional home stays, guest houses, international brand hotels to world-renowned boutique properties.
TIME-2005 has been designed to attract buyers from overseas and Indonesian sellers from various travel and tourism sectors, including hotels, resorts, spas, airlines, National Tourism Offices (NTO), tour operators, travel agencies, cruise liner operators, golf operators, and many more.
Organizers are optimistic that this year’s event will continue to grow exceeding the 102 buyers from 28 countries and 130 Indonesian sellers who attended last year’s event.
Fully supported by the Provincial Government of Yogyakarta, which is headed by the Governor and reigning Royal Sultan of Yogyakarta, Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono X, participants – both buyers and sellers – can be certain of a most royal welcome to Central Java.
