The National News Agency Antara has confirmed that Bali was named as one of the best participants at the International Tourism Bourse (ITB) held in Berlin March 7-11, 2012.

According to Ida Bagus Ngurah Wijaya, who is chairman of the Bali chapter of Indonesian Tourism Industry Association (GIPI), Bali was named the eighth best exhibitor in the Asia Pavilion at what is inarguably one of the world’s largest travel marts.

Jurgen Weischer, Presient of the Cologne Business School, which conducts the contest each year at ITB, presented the award to Bali.

In making the award, Weischer said: "This is not only because the Balinese pavilion which only measured 55 sq meters looked smaller than those of Malaysia and Thailand which had an area of 2,000 square meter but also because it was crowded by visitors."

The Bali pavilion was outranked in the evaluation process after Korea, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia and India.

Indonesia Wins Award at ITB

Indonesian won third prize in the Go Asia Award 2012 Award announced at ITB.

The Go Asia Award recognizes best tourism destinations in Asia. Winning first in the competition was Thailand, with Singapore coming in second.

Indonesian Minister of Tourism and the Creative Economy, Mari Elka Pangestu, was pleased with the award, saying to “ITB Berlin is the precise platform to promote Indonesian tourism. We will evaluate and decide the strategy for next year’s promotion based on this achievement.”

Determined to achieve 8 million tourist visitors in 2012, Pangestu said Indonesia would become an official country partner in 2013, adding, “To get optimum results, preparations start from now.”
