The Trans Luxury Hotel Bandung has been Successfully Selected as the Venue for The 25th ASEAN Federation of Cement Manufactures Technical Symposium and Exhibition
Bandung, 17 November 2017. Known as the city with its charm as a leisure destination, Bandung also has a great potential as MICE (Meeting, Incentive, Conference and Exhibition) destination. With plenty of breath-taking natural scenery, local culinary delights as well as authentic West Java culture, combined with many facilities and supporting elements, this city has the best recipe for the success of international scale MICE events execution.
The above destination selling points were key for The Trans Luxury Hotel Bandung to be selected as the venue for The 25th ASEAN Federation of Cement Manufactures Technical Symposium and Exhibition. This event will be held from 4 to 6 April 2018 and will be attended by 350 participants from AFCM (ASEAN Federation of Cement Manufactures), government officials, company executives, professionals, operators, consultants, journalists, bankers, and fund managers. This event has been presented by AFCM since 1979, and has been held several times in Indonesia: Jakarta (1989 and 2006) and Bali (1996 and 2000).
Chairman of ICA (Indonesia Cement Association) Ir. Widodo Santoso, MBA said "The selection of Bandung in West Java as the venue of the conference is not just because of its reputation as a tourist destination, but more than that, it has been proven by record of hosting various kinds of international events, such as the Asian-African Conference in 1955 and its 60thcomemoration in 2015. It is also an opportunity to see the boundless variety of unique sceneries as well as countless traditional and cultural heritages of West Java”.
Kenny Dewi Kaniasari Department Head of Bandung Tourism Office is extremely happy to welcome The 25th ASEAN Federation of Cement Manufactures Technical Symposium and Exhibition “The decision to select The Trans Luxury Hotel and Bandung city for this event proves that Bandung is an ideal host for regional MICE events. In the near future we need to continually enhance the good cooperation between stakeholders in Bandung, in order to have an integrated city, ready to welcome both MICE and leisure guests, domestic and international.”
“We first learned about this meeting through ICCA database. With the detailed information that ICCA provides, we were able to get in touch with the ASEAN Federation of Cement Manufacturers representative in Indonesia, the Indonesia Cement Association. The insights that we received from ICCA database helped us in preparing the right strategy to win this bid. Also, mentioning that we are an ICCA member raised our confidence and helped us gain more trust from the association which eased the entire bidding process” said Farid Patria, General Manager of The Trans Luxury Hotel Bandung.
He also added “Looking at the success of our previous international events such as the World Stamp Exhibition 2017, IBRAF (International Broadcasting Authority Forum) 2017, Smart City Forum 2016 and many more, I will ensure our team is more than ready to provide the impeccable services and facilities for the success of The 25th ASEAN Federation of Cement Manufactures Technical Symposium and Exhibition.”
