The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) have announced that Bali has been selected as the location for one of the world's leading travel fairs and exhibitions. PATA Travel Mart 2007 (PTM) will take place at dates yet to be fixed in September/October 2007. Bali hosted PTM in 1985 and 1989 and the 53rd PATA Annual Conference in 2003. Jakarta hosted PATAís Annual Conferences in 1963 and 1974.

Indonesia is Keen Host World-Class Travel Trade Event

Indonesia's Minister of Culture and Tourism, Jero Wacik, said: "Indonesian tourism is a proud member of PATA, having hosted numerous PATA events in the past. We are honored to be entrusted by the Association to host PATA Travel Mart in 2007. The event is instrumental to the ongoing recovery of the tourism industry in Bali and throughout the Indonesian Archipelago. I can personally assure each and every prospective delegate of a memorable and productive Pata Travel Mart in 2007."

Director General for Indonesian Culture and Tourism Marketing, Thamrin Bachri, has declared his intention to promote special interest tours - including golf, community-based tourism, eco-tourism, village tours and marine tourism at the 2007 Mart. The PATA Bali and Nusa Tenggara Chapter sees the successful bid as "a real breakthrough to boost flagging visitor arrivals to Bali."

Past Chapter Chairman and Bali Discovery Tours President Director, John M. Daniels said: "PATA's selection of Bali as the venue for PATA Travel Mart 2007 represents excellent timing. The event will bring top travel industry members from around the world to see first hand the enduring charms of our tropical island and the significant new investment made over the past few years."

Daniels, who is also Coordinator of the Communications and Publications Working Group for Bali Recovery, appointed by Bali`s Governor, added: "Bali's selection for the Mart is a tremendous vote of support by PATA and a wonderful opportunity for all of us on the Island to extend a warm and memorable welcome."

PATA President and CEO, Peter de Jong said: "For Indonesia, PTM07 is 'just what the doctor ordered' - a leading, global travel trade event to remind the travel trade that Bali, Indonesia is one of the world's great destinations."

De Jong said the Mart was going from "strength-to-strength," building on its successes of the past two years; Bangkok in 2004 and Kuala Lumpur in 2005. Registrations for PTM06 in Hong Kong are well ahead of schedule.
