Lack of Rooms Expected During U.N. Conference

Bali's Room Supply to be Under Pressure during May 27 - June 06 Conference.

(5/7/2002) The local host committee for the World Summit on Sustainable Development scheduled to be held in Bali May 27 - June 06, have expressed a concern that a room shortage may occur during the event expected to draw 6,000 delegates from around the world.

In comments made to the Indonesian-language daily Bisnis Indonesia, the Chairman of the Bali Tourism Board, Mr. Putu Agus Antara, pointed out that occupancies at Bali hotels typically averaged around 70% during the period set aside for the conference. When the additional influx of 6,000 visitors come to Bali in connection with the U.N. Meeting - a shortage of available hotel rooms may be the result.

The World Summit on Sustainable Development was originally scheduled to be held in Jakarta on the same dates, but was suddenly moved last month to Bali on the orders of President Megawati Soekarnoputri. In order to try to facilitative plenary sessions of upwards of 6,000 people in attendance, plans are underway to provide electronic links to satellite meeting centers at several hotels in Nusa Dua from the main conference venue at the Bali International Convention Center (BICC).

The largest hall at the BICC accommodates 2,500 meeting participants.
