Eastern Indonesia, Future Tourism OfferThere is no doubt that Eastern Indonesia offers stunning nature panorama and unique culture that can be great tourism potentials. However, this does not mean that those potentials can en-courage areas in Eastern Indonesia to develop their tourism sector.A number of areas have captured this opportunity beforehand, such as West Nusa Tenggara, South Sulawesi and Raja Ampat Papua. Considering the promising opportunity, some areas have ac-tively promoted their tourism potentials.Idonesian Tourism Promotional Board (BPPI) has also seen this potential and focuses on promotion on potentials in Eastern Indonesia. Chairperson
of BPPI, Yanti Sukamdani said that currently, there are many areas categorized as disadvantaged areas that have amazing tourism potentials and can be developed to boost the local economy.Unfortunately, most of this type of areas are still lacking in infrastructure to support tourism sector.Deputy Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sapta Nirwandar agreed that eastern Indonesia has great tourism potentials. The potentials in disadvantaged and border areas should be managed and designed into special-interest tourism. This is perfect to be developed considering the great prospects, said Sapta.Sapta expects that special interest tourism like adventure tourism targeting on young people can encourage them to love their country more. Thus, eastern Indo-nesia is suitable to be offered as future tourist destination if we can work together to develop the region. Lets introduce and promote eastern Indonesia as beautiful region and worth a visit.

During the press conference Ibu Esty said: We are very proud on the success of BBTF 2014 and we do hope that this event will be the role model of events of its kind in the near future. Especially for BBTF, we do hope that this can be an annual event and gives a signif-icant contributions to other regions in the country where our target visitors of 9,5 million people can be achieved. At the same time we are very happy with the success of BBTF 2014 and the coordination from central government to local government have been very posi-
tive. However, we do need your feedback for the better organiza-tion of BBTF in years to come.
Bali & Beyond Travel Fair (BBTF) 2014 serves a significant role for Bali and other travel desti-nations in Indonesia for B2B Travel & Tourism purposes and promises to present a not-to-be-missed oc-casion with participants from all over Indonesia and the world.

Indeed it was a long and tedious challenge with various limitations coming into count especially in budgeting and experience in rolling out an activ-ity of this scale. Wed also like to thank all for their great support.
Ketut Ardana further hoped that the event shines light for a better future for Bali and Indonesias tour-ism and can also become a learn-ing ground for related institutions especially those directly involved in tourism. All so that in the end, the Targeted Business Transac-tions between Seller and Buyer of Rp 2 4 Trillion can be achieved.
As a first step, the i m p l e m e n t a t i o n BBTF in Nusa Dua Convention Center some time ago was considered to be quite successful. Indeed, there is still
shortage here and there, said Gusti Kadek Sutawa, CEo of Puri Saron Group. However, this big step should be appreciated since Bali will get more prom
