first Busworld South East Asia exhibition and congress will be taking place
from March 20 – 22, 2019 at the Jakarta International Expo (JIEXPO) Kemayoran,
Jakarta. This exhibition will open its doors for the first time in the Busworld
is not the only new exhibition for Busworld in 2019: Busworld Central Asia has
its premiere in Almaty, Kazakhstan and Busworld Europe, the mother exhibition
who is celebrating its 25th edition in 2019, is having its own premiere by
moving from Kortrijk to Brussels.
Jakarta? Busworld decided to land in Jakarta because of two main reasons. First
of all is Indonesia a country with a big population – 260 million people- that
likes to use the bus. A lot of people implies a lot of vehicles. Indonesia is
continuously improving the public transport system with for example a Bus Rapid
Transit system in Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Solo and other provinces. This creates a
huge potential for the bus manufacturers, together with the fact that the
current bus fleet is old and needs to be renewed urgently. The Ministry of
Transportation is in the process of regulating the maximum age.
Indonesia is actively aiming to reach 20 million visitors by the end of 2019.
Coach tourism is the next big thing in Indonesia. Since 2016 coach operators
also started to introduce double decker
oaches. Again, a lot of tourists means a lot of vehicles. Some sources
are talking about 5,000 new coaches in 2019.
The Busworld Academy Conference
for the very first edition in Jakarta, Busworld Academy wants to start with a
bang. It has foreseen a long list of prominent partners and speakers for the
3-day-programme called “Making bus transport systems attractive, efficient and
affordable in South East Asia”.
programme is aimed at operators, authorities, schools, research and development
departments, etc. Everybody that is active in the bus and coach industry and
eager to know what is going on today and tomorrow has a place here. The
programme consists of a normal cocktail of international and local best cases
and issues that are presented to and discussed with the participants. The
vision of Busworld Academy is to inform and be informed with the final goal to
help developing the bus and coach operations and businesses around the world.
This time in South East Asia.
of the newest partners of Busworld Academy is UCLG ASPAC. They are the key
knowledge management hub on local government issues in the Asia Pacific region
with linkages to more than 7,000 local governments, representing over 3.76
billion people- making up more than half of the world’s population– and
incorporate economically fast developing countries such as China, India, and
Indonesia. On 20 March, they will moderate the “South-East Asian Mayor's
Forum”, where several mayors will have a panel discussion about sustainable
unmissable event is the CEO round table, moderated by Busworld Academy and
chaired by Budi Setiyadi, General Director of Land Transport in the Ministry of
Transport. The main topic in this event will be “Shaping Tomorrow’s Public
Transport in ASEAN countries”. Joining the Busworld Academy Conference will be
a very insightful experience in combination with a visit to the exhibition
where the latest vehicles of Laksana, Daimler and Volvo will be presented.
