Minister Wacik Calls for More MICE

Minister Wacik Calls for Bigger Push for More Meeting, Incentive, Conference and Exhibition (MICE) Business.

(9/24/2005) Indonesia's Minister of Culture and Tourism Jero Wacik has called on national sectors - including political parties - to push for more MICE business (i.e. meetings, incentive, conference and exhibition) and for the inclusion of cultural and art attractions in every event.

Speaking before the first examination for students majoring in MICE studies at the Jakarta Politenik University, Minister Wacik underlined the need for the services of professional event organizers in public gatherings, including political meetings and sporting events. "I hope that all parties will support the MICE industry and work for Indonesia to be appointed as the host for international conferences in order to have the widest positive effect on the economy."

Touching on the tourism potential of Indonesia's newly invigorated system of party politics, Minister Wacik mentioned recent PDIP, Golkar and Democratic Party congresses held in Bali as proof of the substantial business in accommodation and other services that can be generated by this sector and coordinated by professional event organizers.
