Ubud Agent Table Top for The Domestic & International Market 2015
Bali is a world-class tourist destination that still has untapped potential to draw visitors from around the world. This is particularly true for Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali that was named the “Best City in Asia” by Conde Nast Traveller in 2009. To celebrate everything which Ubud has to offer and to introduce its many charms to even more domestic and international tourists, the Ubud Hotels Association (UHA) organized the “Ubud Agent Table Top for the Domestic & International Market 2015,” the second time the event has been held. The Table Top took place on 27-29 November 2014 at The Royal Pita Maha, Ubud. The UHA invited 30 representatives of travel agencies from Jakarta, Surabaya, Bandung, Bali, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines that specialize in selling Ubud as a tourist destination. “There are lots of Balinese cultural activities for tourists in Ubud, like Balinese dance, painting, traditional Balinese music and others. That helps us make Ubud the cultural centre of Bali,” said Adit Pande, the UHA Chairman. “Our dream is that Ubud will become the primary destination in Bali.” On the opening day of the three-day event the travel agents and media arrived in Bali and had the chance to explore Ubud. On the second day, the 56 members of the UHA presented their properties to the travel agents. This table top was split into two sessions, in the morning and afternoon, so every travel agent would have the chance to get to know all the properties under the UHA.The day wrapped up with a grand Farewell Dinner. On the third day, the travel agents had the chance to visit hotels around Ubud and explore more of the city’s offerings.
