The show will comprise an expo, site inspection for buyers and international media, meeting for ASEAN Future Meeting Leaders, seminars and workshops and pre- and post-tours, among other components.
Delegates will also be able to take part in events such as an ASEAN MICE friendly golf game, ASEAN half marathon meeting, ASEAN business events conference, ASEAN Contractors & Engineering Consultants Expo & Forum.
The show is jointly organised by Indonesian travel trade associations with support from the Indonesia Ministry of Tourism.
