With sincere appreciation to

The Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia, Chicago

and to all their staff and all our Sponsors


In an attempt to promote the economy, trade, and the Indonesian culture in Chicago and its surrounding areas, the Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia in Chicago along with the Indonesian Trade Promotion Center (ITPC) in Chicago and Indonesian Diaspora Network (IDN) Midwest will hold an integrated promotional event, “REMARKABLE INDONESIA FAIR 2016” at Hilton Chicago Hotel on

July 23, 2016.

“REMARKABLE INDONESIA FAIR 2016” is organized to further increase the awareness of Indonesian products and culture and to develop the nation branding of Indonesia to the people of Chicago and to the businesses in the Chicago area. Chicago has been chosen as the event location because it is one of the most important centers of finance, trade, and investment in the United States. This event is the beginning of what hopefully will continue to become an annual event in the Chicago area.

This one-day event will showcase ‘Remarkable Indonesia Fair’ Exhibition, Cultural Performances ‘Harmony in Diversity’, ‘Explore and Discover the Wonderful Indonesia’ Seminar, ‘Batik: Indonesia’s Intangible Asset’ Talk Show, Batik Workshop, Indonesian Food Demo and Testing and other promotional activities (tentative agenda as attached).

Therefore, in an effort to support the Indonesia’s cultural diplomacy, we are cordially inviting you to participate in the REMARKABLE INDONESIA FAIR 2016 by holding a Workshop on Batik Painting. We also invite you to open a Batik and Art promotional booth at the Fair. We have included a detailed proposal for your review.


I want to thank Jepri Edi of the Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia in Chicago, the Indonesian Trade Promotion Center (ITPC) in Chicago, and Indonesian Diaspora Network (IDN) Midwest  for inviting me and making it possible for me to share my and expertise on design and the Batik making process.
