The Jakarta Tourism Business Forum (JTBF) took place on December 2 to 5, 2014. The event which is organised by JAKARTA Tourism and Culture Office (JCTO), showcased the city of Jakarta’s unique offerings for tourist and visitors alike.
100 sellers from Jakarta including hotels, airlines, shopping centres, transportation and tourist atractions met with 194 buyers from around Indonesia as well as regional buyers from Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam and Malaysia.
It’s a strategic step taken by (the office) to promote the city in a more progressive way,” said Arie Budhiman, head of JCTO.
By bringing buyers to Jakarta the event hopes to allow them to see for themselves what the city has to offer.
