LA MAISON de l’Indonesie or Rumah Indonesia will hold a B2B Table Top Tourism event on March 2-3, 2023, a tourism market meeting, to promote Indonesian (RI) tourism in France.

Based on a Rumah Indonesia press release reported by Antara in Jakarta, Saturday (25/2/2023), the promotional event was held again this year after three years of suspension due to the pandemic. The Indonesian tourism workshop themed Indonesia Vous Attend, which means Indonesia is waiting for you, was held for two days at Rumah Indonesia Paris and coordinated by tour operator Eka Moncarre.

The promotion of Indonesian tourism in France continues to help the recovery of Indonesian tourism in the international market and the European market, especially France. Europe is considered a very important market for Indonesian tourism.
