The fifth installment of outdoor adventure gear exhibition Indonesia Outdoor Festival (Indofest) is slated to be held on March 12-15 at Exhibition Hall A and B in the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC), Central Jakarta.

Themed "Indonesia, the Greatest Outdoor", the event is aiming to attract 100,000 visitors and will be bigger than previous years as it will take up two exhibition halls.

“We hope the exhibition can support outdoor activities and other tourism potentials in Indonesia, as well as increase the number of visitors to all tourist destinations in the country,” said Disyon Toba, CEO of Consina Outdoor Services, the organizer of the event, as quoted by kompas.com on Thursday.

With an entrance fee of Rp 40,000 (US$2.80), visitors will have access to gears for outdoor activities, such as mountain hiking, running, cycling, cliff climbing, canoeing, fishing, diving, motor adventure and many more.
