Government Offers Subsidies to Target International Events

Incentive Funds Intended to Make Indonesia More Competitive in Seeking Major Conferences and Congresses.

(9/3/2007) Hoping to attract 100 international events to Indonesia, the Indonesian Department of Culture and Tourism will soon subsidize the bidding process for major meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (MICE) considering Indonesia as a venue.

Speaking to the Indonesian-language Bisnis Indonesia, the Chairman of the Indonesia Congress and Conference Organizers Association, Iqbal Allan Abdullah, said, "We hope the promised government subsidy to assist bidding on international MICE events can soon be realized in order to allow us to attract more events to Indonesia."

Complaining that the bidding competition to attract major events to Indonesia was intense, Iqbal estimates that between US$15,000-US$20,000 is needed in subsidies and incentives to attract and win bids for major international events.
