The Jakarta provincial administration is taking part in IMEX Frankfurt 2022 to strengthen the capital city’s position in the global meeting, incentive, convention, and exhibition (MICE) industry.


IMEX Frankfurt is Europe’s largest trade show for the MICE sector and is scheduled to take place from May 31 to June 2 at the Messe Frankfurt in Frankfurt, Germany.


One of the cosmopolitan cities in the region, Jakarta is hosting a number of international-scale events this year, such as the inaugural Jakarta Formula E 2022 on June 4 and the 33rd International Publisher Congress which is scheduled for Nov. 10-12.


The capital city of Indonesia also hosts the Urban 20 (U20) Mayors’ Summit 2022, the summit of global city leaders, as part of the Indonesian presidency of the Group of Twenty (G20). Part of the Indonesian G20 presidency’s agenda is discussing various post-pandemic urban challenges that global cities must face inline with Indonesian G20 presidency theme, “Recover Together, Recover Stronger”.


One way that cities in the world can recover post the pandemic is through MICE activities which can move the economic wheels and revive tourism industry after being severely beaten by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is believed that MICE sector could help the economy and tourism industry to quickly recover during the post-COVID-19 recovery.


Jakarta is the country’s largest business city which indirectly makes it as a MICE city in Indonesia while at the same time MICE sector has the highest potentials in Jakarta’s tourism.


The capital city has just officiated its new stadium, the Jakarta International Stadium, which is located in Sunter, North Jakarta. The stadium can also be used as a venue for various large events at the international and local levels.


Head of Jakarta Capital City Government Tourism and Creative Economy Office, Mr. Andhika Permata said other than being a business and MICE city, Jakarta also has various destinations in the leisure sector.


“One of the leisure destinations is the Kepulauan Seribu (Thousand Islands) area which is suitable for tourists who want to take a brief break from all the hustle and bustle in Jakarta,” Andika said.


“Kepulauan Seribu is located only about 15 minutes from the Jakarta port where tourists can enjoy its natural beauty, which is comparable to other beach destinations, both locally and globally.”


The Jakarta Tourism and Creative Economy Agency are working together with several businesses in the MICE sector in attending IMEX Frankfurt 2022. The businesses are Jakarta Convention Center, Fairmont Hotel Jakarta, Jakarta International Expo (JIEXPO), Pacto Convex and Prodigy Conference Organizer.
