Trade fairs from various industrial sectors such as machine building and textiles and major conferences, congresses and meetings are equally at home here. The Balai Sidang Jakarta Convention Center offers state-of-the art facilities for events of all kinds. Are you looking for a suitable hotel close to your event venue? Or would you prefer your accommodation to be a little outside the pulsating city centre?
Jakarta - Multicultural conference destination
Whether in the inner city or on the nearby beach – the influences of the population of Malay, Arab, Indian, Dutch and Chinese origin are apparent everywhere you turn. A multicultural vibe emanates from the many markets, scents from countless restaurants and the throngs of people hailing from all four corners of the globe.
Depending on where you are travelling from, Jakarta can be reached directly by air or via the major hubs of Bangkok, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur or Singapore. Soekarno-Hatta International Airport is located to the north-west of the city. From here, you can travel to the city centre or your conference hotel by taxi, train, or, – somewhat adventurously – by bus.
In Kota Tua – Jakarta's old town – you will still find buildings from Jakarta's colonial past (Indonesia was formerly a Dutch colony) dotted between the skyscrapers and busy streets. The area in front of the first fortified Dutch settlement is a popular meeting place and well worth a visit. The preserved Gedung Kesenian Theatre also hails from this era. Music, dance and theatre – cultural expression is important to the Javanese.
What else ist here to discover?
Museums, markets, places of interest and buildings, several seaports, gigantic shopping malls and many parks await. Whether it's food, art and crafts or luxury goods, in Jakarta you can truly 'shop until you drop'. The climate means that retail therapy mostly takes place in vast, air-conditioned shopping malls.
Is your conference being held in pulsating Jakarta? The commercial and business capital of the world's largest island state is fascinating and breathtaking in equal measure. A cacophony of bustling, noisy traffic in the centre juxtaposed with picture-perfect beaches, volcanic landscapes, rice terraces and the most vivid flora and fauna.
Get up close with the local customs, habits and traditions. Experience ceremonies and rituals from different cultures. Enjoy the Indonesian hospitality and joie de vivre. Please be aware that Jakarta is situated on the largely Muslim island of Java, where it is customary to cover up and refrain from showing too much skin in public.
Successful meetings, conferences and congresses in a tropical island paradise.
