East Java is proud to host the 20th Majapahit International Travel Fair (MITF) in 2019. On behalf of the Government and the people of East Java, I would like to extend a very warm invitation to the travel professionals and tourism industries to participate in the annual MITF held on May 2-5, 2019 in Surabaya. The MITF is an excellent platform to build networking and establish business contacts. It has been attended by both international and domestic buyers, a wide variety of sellers of East Java tourist destinations, hotels, resorts, and travel related services as well as industry policy makers, academicians, tourism observers and the media.
While in East Java, do take the opportunity to discover and experience not only the spectacular natural tourist attractions but also the unique blend of offers-from ethnic cultures, exotic fruits and cuisine, colorful dances to nightlife, and you can meet the different kind of ethnics spread across the 38 regencies. They are potentially promoted and offered to other nations.
To comfort the visitors, East Java boast its rapid development of tourism infrastuctures such as the growing of new hotels in Surabaya, new tourist attractions, shopping blocks malls, and more direct flights. The Juanda international airport has a larger area and accomodates more airlines than ever before. It also has direct flights from and to some other countries such as Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor Bahru), Singapore, Hong Kong, Brunei Darussalam and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (Jeddah).
I am confident you will find that the province of East Java is ready and committed to the continuing development of the travel and tourism industry. I wish your active participation in MITF 2019 would greatly develop your business meetings and have the most enjoyable and fun stay here in East Java.
Therefore, once again on behalf of the government and the people of East Java, I look forward to personally meeting you in the MITF 2019 in East Java.
