The event is the first event of its kind to be held in Borneo and will be an experience like no other. The event started its life as an exhibition of tribal tattoos and whilst this remains the biggest attraction, the event has been transformed into a revival of the ancient arts which goes way beyond tattooing.

Visitors will have the opportunity to experience first-hand the many dying traditions of Borneo, such as weaving, woodcarving, bead making and head hunting rituals. The event will showcase anything and everything to do with tribal culture in Borneo.

Scheduled to take place from 14th to 16th January 2011 at the Borneo Convention Centre, the event will bring the world to Borneo at a time when indigenisation of cultures is becoming a popular anthropological exercise.

Event organisers would like to welcome the world to Borneo where they will showcase a rich and diverse variety of ancient cultures and a truly unique experience. The occasion will attract not only the local tribes people of Borneo but visitors from all over the world who will be checking into Kuching hotels to be close to the event in the city centre.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head at commented: "This event really is one of a kind and is set to draw big crowds into Kuching. In order to guarantee hotel rooms close to the event it is best to check online for availability".
