GLOBALINDO Holidays Indonesia is planning to create a series of religious conferences and events in Indonesia that will target India’s large Hindu population.
The company‚Äôs business development manager for India and Sri Lanka, Sanjay David, said the events would potentially draw an attendance of 3,000 to 4,000 Hindu followers.
‚ÄúThis is an untapped niche segment that few other MICE organisers are willing to take on. Naturally, due to the size of these events, there are a number of logistical challenges, including the need for a vast number of guestrooms to accommodate delegates, and the provision of food options which meet strict religious dietary requirements,‚ÄĚ said David.
In addition to large-scale religious events, Globalindo Holidays is also looking at the feasibility of running incentive programmes with a Hindu theme for Indian companies. These programmes will incorporate visits to renowned Hindu landmarks around Indonesia, such as the ancient temples of Borobudur and Prambanan.
