Panorama tasks new CEO with inbound growth
INDONESIA’s Panorama Group has appointed Renato Domini, former managing director of Asia World Indonesia, as CEO of Panorama Destination to lead a new spurt of inbound business growth.
Budi Tirtawisata, CEO of Panorama Group said: “Inbound tourism is gaining a golden momentum with the Indonesian government’s focus on making tourism its backbone and a quick-win sector in the country’s economic development.”
Panorama Destination is targeting to reach 115,000 passengers this year with plans to double the amount number in 2016.
Besides expanding its Indonesian network with new offices, the company will also be penetrating new markets such as China and India, explained said Domini. Bespoke experiential programmes catering to the high-end market are also in the works.
The government has set a high target of 20 million arrivals by 2019 and to achieve that, it has quadrupled its promotional budget this year. Indonesia has also eased visa restrictions and lifted the cabotage on cruises and yachts.
“The tourism targets are huge ones and will require out-of-the-box efforts from all parties,” Budi said, adding that this has prompted Panorama to seize the moment
