(11/9/2002)

A group of 65 representatives of hotels and travel companies from Bali Village will be in London November 11-14, 2002, to attend the World Travel Mart 2002 (WTM) and delivering the message that "Bali is Still Everybody's Home."

Bali Village is a 200-strong non-profit association of Bali-based tourism companies who combine forces for the promotion of the island's tourism.

What is perhaps most heartening about the London visit, however, is the way the world is pledging support for Bali in the wake of the murderous attack on a Bali night spot on the evening of October 12th, which claimed more than 180 innocent lives. Acknowledging that Bali was an equal victim in that attack, governments, travel organizations, and travel companies are working with the Balinese to help re-launch the island's tourism product in the shortest possible time.

At WTM the organizers of the event, Reed Travel Exhibitions, are providing free Bali banners at the entrance of the venue as well as offering generous discounts to Bali-based exhibitors. Meanwhile, the United Kingdom's Chapter of the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) are sponsoring a cocktail reception in support of the Bali delegation. Travel Weekly, a leading Australian travel-trade periodical, will sponsor a special roundtable luncheon discussion in which 20 leading travel industry executives will be invited to meet with Bali Village officials on November 11th.

The Bali Village delegation have also received support from Garuda Indonesia in the form of airline discounts for their travel to London and from the Indonesian Department of Finance, who have waived the standard Rp. 1 million departure tax paid by citizens and residents of Indonesia every time they travel overseas.

"We bring the pronouncement, of two and a half million Balinese who are dependent on tourism of their daily lives, for the world to hear: 'Bali is still everybody’s home,' and we need the help of our international friends to reinstate trust in travel," said Ida Bagus Ngurah Wijaya, the Chairman of Bali Village, who will also be attending the WTM.
