According to the Indonesian-language Bisnis Indonesia, the Indonesian Ministry of Culture and Tourism is optimistic that the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Travel Mart, set for Bali September 25-28, 2007, will attract 433 buyers from 352 companies in 50 countries.
Tatang Rukhiyat, Director of International Promotions at the Indonesian Ministry of Culture and Tourism, said the Bali event is on course to break the record-setting number of participants who attended last year's Mart in Hong Kong.
Rukhiyat said he hoped the Badung Regional Government in Bali would lend its full support to making the event a success.
Meanwhile, an estimated 870 "sellers" from 38 countries will be on hand in Bali offering tourism products and services to the registered sellers.
In addition to several days of back-to-back business meetings, the more than 1,200 buyers and sellers will be feted at numerous dinners and sponsored social gatherings.
