Welcome to the 8th edition of INDONESIA PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZER SUMMIT (IPOS-8) 2023. This forum is initiated and jointly organized by IVENDO and IPOS to build MICE & Event industry melting pot in Indonesia.

BAKUDAPA means meeting each other – is the spirit of this event. The momentum for loosening activities in all fields has made the IPOS-8 as an in-person business forum that all parties have been waiting for.

IPOS was started in 2013, initially offering a newly designed yet “refreshing” business forum that has proven to turn the old-style ambiance into a completely “out of the box”.  IPOS then develops as the best networking and exchange platform that connects Indonesia suppliers and service providers with buyers from the MICE and Event segments.

Reviving the tourism industry and the creative economy after the Covid-19 pandemic is a global challenge. The world competes to find the most promising breakthroughs and new markets that have great potential to be developed.

The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) predicts the tourism sector has grown 70 percent compared to 2019. It is believed that the trend of travel and tourism demand in 2023 will increase rapidly but the behaviour of travellers will change drastically. The sales strategy began to adapt from mass-tourism to quality-tourism.

Even though in 2023 there will still be many challenges such as recession, increasing flight ticket prices, as well as VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity), the Indonesia Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy RI stated that they will continue to encourage the recovery of Indonesia tourism sector. The government has even revoked the PPKM contained in the Ministry of Home Affairs Instruction No. 50 and 51 of 2022. So, there are no more restrictions on crowds and people’s movements. This is a very good signal for the development of the tourism industry & creative economy in the country.

The focus of the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy RI is still on domestic tourists, so it can be assumed that cities in Indonesia will compete to attract as many visitors as possible. Are you ready? In MICE & Event industry “Experiencing is Believing”.

This year’s IPOS is expected to bring together hundred of attendees from tourism organisations, destinations, hotel groups, venues, suppliers, transportation service and event technology providers, as well as other players interested who will showcase their products and services to more than 100 hand-picked Buyers which is now expanded to Corporates, BUMN, Governments and many more.

Intense business matching and networking, sharing and exchanging insights at Smart Forum panels, and direct B2B contacts at IPOS will contribute to the revitalisation of the region’s event tourism market in 2023.

Join us at IPOS-8 BAKUDAPA, be prepared for up coming business opportunities.

See you all in May 16-18, 2023 in Jakarta!
