Application Process

What is the application process? 

  • Anyone can apply via the application link on our website if they feel they meet the assessment criteria. Invitations are also distributed from our database. 

  • If you receive an invitation and you'd like to be a hosted buyer, complete the online application form.  

  • Once the application is received, the hosted buyer team will check and verify the information provided to ensure we're attracting quality buyers to the event. Reference checks will be undertaken if necessary, and you may be contacted to provide more information. You may think this is a long process however, as you can imagine, it is costly to host our buyers, and we need to ensure that we are providing our exhibitors with quality buyers with purchasing power. 

  • Some applications will be quicker to process than others, for example applications from the larger and well-established electric utility or IPP companies are usually quick to process and can be turned around in a day or two. Other applications can take much longer to verify (as per above), especially in peak periods where lots of applications are being received all at once, or if referee information is being sought. 

  • If your application is approved, you will receive an email with instructions to read and accept the Terms and Conditions (T’s & C’s) for being hosted. 

  • Once the T’s & C’s are signed off, you will receive an email confirming your application, together with an indication of the next steps in the process, for example flight information or exhibitor preferences for one-to-one meetings, dietary requirements etc. 

  • If your application does not meet our assessment criteria you will be notified and invited to register as a self-funded attendee. 

How is the application assessed? 

  • Successful applicants will meet the necessary criteria as laid out in the Hosted Buyer application process. 

  • Follow-up enquiries from Enlit Asia will be made where necessary to further support the application. 

What is the cut-off date for applications? 

  • The very last day we will accept applications will be Monday, 31 July 2023 – without exception. 

How many applications do you accept? 

  • We have a limited number of positions available for hosted buyers. Please do not delay your application or you risk missing out on attending Enlit Asia as a hosted buyer! 

What happens if my application is unsuccessful? 

  • If your application does not meet our assessment criteria, or you unsuccessful for other reasons, you will be notified and invited to register as a self-funded attendee.

How will I be matched with exhibitors for pre-arranged meetings? 

Based on your company, your position and the information you have provided during the application process, you will be matched with our exhibitors using our business matching platform.  

We will then share your basic information (title, company) with our exhibitors who will then invite you to meet during the event at a time convenient to both parties. 

Can I share my appointments with a colleague? 

  • No. If there are two of you from the same company we would prefer for you to have your own personalised appointment schedules in order to share yourselves around amongst the 200+ exhibitors. 


Is accommodation provided for buyers? 

  • Yes, hosted buyers will receive complimentary accommodation at a 4 or 5-star hotel in Jakarta within close proximity to ICE, where the event will take place. 

  • Additional nights will be at the individual buyer’s personal expense. 

Is breakfast at the hotel included for buyers? 

  • Yes, a buffet breakfast in the hotel restaurant is included with accommodation. Any in-room dining, breakfasts, other meals or snacks, mini-bar etc., will be at your own expense and paid direct to the hotel.

Can I extend my stay in Jakarta? 

  • Yes. You may extend your stay in Jakarta at your own expenses. 

Can I choose the hotel where I’d like to stay?

  • No. If everyone could choose their own hotel, then we’d have everyone choosing the most popular, well-known international 5-star properties and the lesser-known properties could have none, or very few requests. Your accommodation is covered by the event organiser and to be fair to our hotel partners, the hosted buyer team will allocate each buyer to a hotel. This is done once the applications have closed and we know exactly how many buyers are attending Enlit Asia and exactly how many rooms are required from the blocks we have negotiated with hotels. It is not an option to swap hotels after they have been allocated by the hosted buyer team. 

When will I be notified about my accommodation? 

  • Buyers will be notified of their accommodation in September 2023. We allocate accommodation once the applications have closed and we know exactly how many buyers are attending and exactly how many rooms are required from the blocks we have negotiated with our partner hotels.


Are flights included for hosted buyers? 

  • Flight costs are included for hosted buyers. More information will be provided once your hosted buyer application has been confirmed.
