Many of the larger hotels provide excellent conference facilities, multiple restaurants and recreational facilities such as swimming pools, spas, gyms, water sports centres and tennis courts.
In Nusa Dua 4,500 fine hotel rooms and the extensive state-of-the-art Bali International Convention Center (BICC) exist in close proximity amongst beautifully landscaped gardens. With world-class restaurants and shopping, a championship 18-hole golf course, lawn bowls and two massive outdoor venues in the same complex, few destinations can compete with the range of MICE facilities on tap at Nusa Dua.
Where else can a shuttle service all conference hotels and venues in just a few minutes? Where else can a five-day conference, utilising a different location for each day’s meeting and each evening’s entertainment be held without having to repeat a venue?
Bali’s strong sense of community and cooperation play an important part in its unique approach to MICE events. The participation of some of Bali’s most renowned cultural groups that make their home in Sanur Village, make a “village night” on Sanur’s fabled beachfront a remarkable MICE event by any standard.
Other community groupings of hotels and support facilities in Jimbaran, Kuta, Tanjung Benoa, Legian-Seminyak and the community of Ubud in the foothills have well-deserved reputations for being able to add their own unique accent and character to MICE functions centered in their respective communities.
The traditional villages that surround the hotel and entertainment venues supply the many extra dancers, musicians and spare hands needed to successfully handle a conference or meeting event in Bali. Such teamwork is typical of Bali's community-based approach to tourism.
In Bali, conferences, both small and large, are sure to encounter a genuine brand of hospitality guaranteed to build camaraderie among delegates, and friendship with an island community that can last a lifetime.
