Indonesia’s the Ministry of Tourism will host the seventh Bali & Beyond Travel Fair (BBTF) in Bali from June 8 to 12 this year, taking on a hybrid form with health protocols in place for the in-person programme.
As with its pre-pandemic editions, BBTF 2021 will gather both international and domestic trade buyers to meet with tourism sellers from Bali and other priority Indonesian destinations.
Tanto Ruwiyadi, vice committee chairman of BBTF told TTGmice that international buyers will participate at the show virtually while domestic participants will meet offline.
BBTF 2021 will focus on the theme, Exploring Sustainable and Wellness Tourism. A number of activities and forums led by reputable speakers will address new opportunities, trends and industry insights, as well as highlight the diversity of Indonesiaâ€™s regional cultures as a strategic asset for responsible tourism growth.
Recognised as the country’s leading international travel and tourism fair, BBTF is part of Indonesia’s strategy to promote new business opportunities and facilitate the industry’s recovery from the current crisis.
BBTF 2020, which was scheduled for June last year, was called off due to the pandemic and resulting restrictions on travel and mass gatherings.
