Gathering Funds for PATA 2003 in Bali

Creative Fund Raising Afoot to Pay for PATA Conference in April 2003.


(3/11/2002)

The Indonesian-language KOMPAS in its on-line March 4, 2002, edition carried comments by the Chairman of the Bali Chapter of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI), Mr. I Gede Wiratha, stating that members of the Bali tourism community were joining forces to contribute Rp. 350 billion (US$ 35 million) to help promote Bali as the destination for the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) conference to be held in Bali in April of 2003.

"These fund will hopefully be collected from the sale of incentive packets in cooperation with Garuda Indonesia on the routes between Europe and Bali.", said Wiratha.

Under the terms of the proposed incentive, the PHRI will extend a discount of 73% from published hotel rates in two packets - one a 5 night/6 day package prices at US$ 125 and the 10 night/11 day package sold at US$ 250.

Meanwhile, The Association of Indonesian Travel Agents (ASITA) and the Indonesian Guide Association (HPI) will make a contribution of US$ 50 - US$ 100 from every travel packet. Members of the tourism industry gathered under the Association of Marine Tourism Operators (Gahawisri) have also pledge a contribution from every packet of between US$ 25 and US$ 50.

The combined discounts from Bali's travel industry will be sold in packages sold over two periods - the first from July-November 2002 and the second, March - July 2003.

To increase Bali's visibility in the European market, part of the funds accumulated will be used to provide special painted exteriors on the Garuda aircraft designed by leading Balinese artists.

PATA Conference Preparations

According to John Pantja, the Head of the Indonesian Private Conference Organizers SIPCO, the provincial government of Bali has given full responsibility for the preparation of the PATA conference to his organization including raising the necessary funds to host the event.
