USA, Asia Pacific and Australia identified as key source markets placing outbound business into the region
Results from a recent global Destination Index Survey, compiled by the leading Global DMC, Pacific World (www.pacificworld.com), have identified Bali as one of the top MICE destinations in South East Asia. Ensuring safety, popular incentives activities and exclusive heritage sites are all factors contributing to the popularity of the destination.
The research has identified an increase in outbound business from the U.S. into the region after the success of the Asia Pacific Summit in 2014. Other key source markets placing business in the region include Asia Pacific and Australia with the majority of clients coming from the IT and automotive industries.
I Wayan Sumadiyasa, MICE Manager Indonesia at Pacific World, commented, “Following some more troubling times, Bali is finally being perceived as a safe destination with heightened security measures put in place by the police and local people. Indonesia has enjoyed political and economic stability in recent years and we are seeing an amazing growth of the amount of incentives.”
Other factors contributing to popularity of Bali as an incentive destination include new city infrastructure such as the international airport terminal and road to connect the airport to the Nusa Dua and Sanur area, and the opening of a new Ritz Carlton hotel.
