The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali together with the adjacent Bali International Convention Centre (BICC) proudly contributed to the overwhelming success of the recent International Monetary Fund-World Bank Annual Meeting 2018.
A sizeable contingent of VIP dignitaries, international heads of state, ministers, parliamentarians, academics and private sector delegates all descended on the island of Bali to participate in this year’s event from 8th – 14th October 2018.
All 467 guestrooms at the resort were conveniently converted into offices to accommodate the needs of delegates. Meanwhile, BICC was transformed into a state-of-the-art Press Centre for respected national and international media outlets.
A large outdoor environment in front of BICC was also utilized as an Indonesian Pavilion to showcase examples of art, culture and innovation from around the archipelago. Colorful displays, interactive demonstrations and detailed information about emerging tourism destinations all drew attention to Indonesia’s growing economic potential.
The IMF-World Bank Annual Meeting 2018 well and truly put Bali in the global spotlight and showed everyone what Indonesia is capable of. It was an event that will go down in history as approximately 36,669 people, including delegates from 189-member countries, gathered to make decisions that will impact many generations to come.
