Palembang, Indonesia

October 18 - 19, 2019

Organizing Party

Palembang Polytechnic of Tourism


The Tourism & Events Symposium (TES) is co-organized by the Palembang Polytechnic of Tourism (PPT) and the Asia Pacific Institute for Events Management (APIEM). It aims to bring together academic researchers and scholars to share best practices on how events are managed as part of tourism strategy.



I am delighted to welcome you to this APIEM symposium. The purpose of the event is to bring together researchers, scholars and event professionals to share up-to-date research and best practices in the subject discipline of events/MICE. Through the presentations, debates and discussions that take place your knowledge and understanding of the events/MICE industry will be considerably enhanced and will enable you to take some of the ideas generated into your work place.


This symposium is just one of a number of events that APIEM is organising in 2019 and I hope that you will have the opportunity to join with us at another event that we are organising in the Asia Pacific region. Each event has a distinct theme and they have all been designed to contribute to the professionalisation of the events/MICE industry. All the papers that are presented at our events will be published and as such will develop further the subject body of knowledge in events/MICE.


Many thanks for registering to attend this APIEM event and best wishes for your successful and enjoyable participation.
