Bogor Craft is an annual handicraft exhibition held to commemorate the anniversary of Bogor on 3rd of June. This year’s event was opened by Mayor of Bogor, Diani Budiarto, on last Friday, May 21, 2010. The Mayor officially opened the event by signing a batik fabric, witnessed by local government officials and Indonesia’s Miss Tourism 2009, Isti Ayu Pratiwi.
Botani Square Mall was chosen as the venue of Bogor Craft 2010 because the local government thought it would attract more visitors compared to last year’s exhibition, which was held in recreational area.
There are more than 70 booths in this year’s exhibition, showcasing handicrafts from local craftsmen and small and medium enterprises. Besides exhibition, there will also be twenty kinds of competition and art shows to enliven the events.
According to Diani in his opening speech, Bogor has a lot of commodities that attract buyers from foreign countries such as United States, Korea, Iran, China and Hungary.
