Mr. David Hall of David Hall & Associates traveled to Bali to address members and guests of the Bali MICE Initiative at a luncheon meeting held on Tuesday, June 25, 2002, at the Radisson Hotel Sanur.

Mr. Hall, an acknowledged leader in the meeting and conference industry, during a 30 year career has had the responsibility for establishing a number of international conventions and visitor bureaus around the world. He has also held senior positions with convention organization both in Bali and Jakarta.

More than 70 representatives of Bali's tourism sector listened to David Hall explain the decision-making process for meetings held by international associations and how a destination can tap into that market to stimulate visitor growth. He also spoke of the importance of data bases and the various resources available to those seeking association and major worldwide conferences.

Mr. Hall also pointed out how luring high-profile conferences and meetings can help governments bring leading international experts to their country who can contribute to national developmenet efforts.

While praising the work of the Bali MICE Initiative, including the publication of a comprehensive guide to meetings and conferences in Bali and the organization of Bali's representation at international trade shows, Mr. Hall emphasized that Bali will never be truly competitive in the meeting market until it establishes a professional convention bureau. Such a bureau is needed to represent a destination in the often lengthy process of securing major international conferences.

The luncheon with Mr. Hall was organized by the Bali MICE Initiative with the kind support of David Hall Associates, Radisson Hotels, Adi Convex and Bali Discovery Tours.
