Travel Fair 2023 will be another effort from us as a travel association

Customers can also benefit from cashbacks from the bank sponsor,
extra discounts, free travel insurance, gift vouchers, and souvenirs.
Exhibitors include airlines, cruise lines, hotels, tourist attractions,
travel agencies, travel gear, travel insurance, and more.
ASTINDO is also supporting the government's "Bangga Berwisata di
Indonesia Aja" (BBWI) campaign by providing free booths for travel
agents outside of Jakarta to promote their domestic tour packages.
The association subsidises the booth for its travel agent members, so
all construction costs will be covered. Additionally, the fair offers a
4,680 sqm space for exhibitors to showcase their products and services.
For travel agents, the ASTINDO Travel Fair 2023 presents the
opportunity to attract new customers, stay updated about travel trends
and destinations worldwide, discover new leads, and expand and
consolidate business connections.
Suharno adds, "We do hope this event would be a good base for the
tourism industries and let's grow together, grow stronger than ever with
