Timor Leste at PATA Bali

This year's Pacific and Asia Travel Association Travel Mart is handily taking place in Bali this year, so we are sending a solid delegation to the show - including the new Minister of Tourism, Commerce and Industry, Mr Gil Alves - to promote our fledgling tourism industry.
We have received requests from 40 different companies (buyers) from all over the world to meet Timor Leste's representatives, which is very encouraging. We will also be requesting appointments with a number of other companies specialising in our kind of tourism - ie adventure travel, nature, diving, cultural, etc. We have also requested a meeting with the Bali Tourism Association so that we can discuss bilateral relations and cross-marketing.

I will post the full list of the companies that we will meet as soon as it is confirmed, in case any members want to contact companies directly with details of what they have to offer. ATTL will represent those tourism operators who are not attending the show. Please email me with any specific requests you may have. We will be needing 300-500 copies of companies' brochures to hand out in our "goody bag", which will contain the CD Rom and the general Turismo Timor Leste brochures. Please drop off what you have either at FreeFlow, Hotel Dili or the Directorate of Tourism in Fomento building. If any ATTL members need help with making up their brochures, email me and I will assist as best I can.
Best regards

From the Directorate of Tourism

PATA Greetings!

We are writing to you today with an update on our PTM2007, September 25-28, at Bali International Convention Centre, Bali, Indonesia.

Buyers: As of July 13, 2007, PATA has received a total of 416 registered buyer delegates from 347 buyer organisations, from 51 countries. This represents an increase of 12% buyer registrations at the same time last year for PTM2006. (For your information, this time last year we had received only 370 buyer registrations).

We are pleased that all our 349 registered primary Buyers have agreed to undertake an independent set of business calendar to meet, network, negotiate and contract with our PTM2007 Sellers.

After feedback and requests from our Sellers, efforts will be made to visibly distinguish the region source and business profile of all our buyer delegates on-site during the mart with colourful ribbons tagged to their delegate badges.

Further, we have endeavoured to visibly identify "first time PTM buyers" in the Buyer Advance Guide sent to you.

Sellers: This year's Mart sees a total net floor area of 4,294 square metres occupied by Sellers at the BICC. Macau SAR and the Pacific islands are coming back to the Mart with even bigger representations this year. And India is maintaining the biggest country pavilion, standing huge at 162 square metres.
