The two-day virtual 2020 Geotourism Festival will kick off online on July 15 to promote West Nusa Tenggara’s (NTB) geotourism and micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME).

The event will also feature webinars, cultural performances, virtual tours around Mount Rinjani and Mount Tambora, and online exhibitions, showcasing a wide array of tour packages and local products.

According to the Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry’s Meeting, Incentive, Convention and Exhibition (MICE) director, Rizky Handayani, digital technology allows avid travelers and tour agencies to have limitless interactions.

“By joining this virtual event, tourism players and communities in Indonesia can learn to use technology to sell their products and services during the pandemic,” Rizky said in a statement.
