The spectacular Indonesian location Peninsula Island, a Nusa Dua, which hosted VWD Bali 2022.
August 2022 – We received and are pleased to publish the article sent to use by Frannata Suryanto, President of Vespa Club Indonesia, the national organiser of Vespa Worlds Days 2022 in Bali (9-12 June 2022), under the aegis of the Vespa World Club, presided over by Mauro Calestrini.
“The participants of the Vespa World Days (VWD) 2022 which was held in Bali from June 9-12, 2022, have not been able to move on. On several occasions, they have still been discussing the success of the VWD 2022 event which recorded various international achievements. Even though the VWD Bali 2022 event was 2 months ago, it feels like just yesterday. The spirit and enthusiasm can still be felt today.
There are several important factors that made this Vespa World Days 2022 Bali event difficult to forget. This VWD event was highly anticipated by Vespisti from all over the world due to the fact that it had been postponed for two years, originally planned for 2020. VWD 2022 Bali was the first time the event had been held outside the European continent. This event became the largest in the world because it succeeded in attracting 37,768 Vespisti to Peninsula Island, as the Main Stage Area and the Camping Ground Area in the Pandawa Beach Area Pandawa Beach Area.
‘The Vespa Village Main Stage area was located on Peninsula Island, a small island in the Exclusive Nusa Dua area of Bali. The Vespa Village Main Stage accommodated registration of the 8,985 participants consisting of Light Entry (7,828 participants) and Full Entry (947 participants), Honourable Entry, and special Full Entry participants who donate (as many as 210 participants),’, said Danny Mamesah of the Organising Committee.

Danny further explained that the committee had built a 2nd Vespa World Days Stage called the Camping Ground Area at Pandawa Beach. The purpose of building the Camping Ground was to accommodate Vespisti who were unable to register because the Main Stage area was limited to 50% occupancy only due to Covid-19 regulations.
‘The VWD Bali 2022 event broke the World Records recorded by the Indonesia Museum Record. The records were as follows: the first time outside Europe, the most registered participants (8,985), and the most video uploads to YouTube from participants (more than 500 posts on YouTube’, Danny Mamesah added.

Another interesting point is that, although this is a community gathering event, it was able to attract so many state officials. The opening of the Vespa World Days 2022 event was attended and opened by the Chairman of the Indonesian Motorcycle Association, Bambang Soesatyo, who is also the Chairman of the Indonesia Parliament. It was also attended by Ministry of SOEs, Erick Thohir, the Deputy Governor of North Sumatera, Musa Rajekshah, S. Sos., M. Hum, as well as official envoys from the Governor of the Regional Government of Bali.
The closing ceremonial was carried out by the Deputy Governor of Bali, Dr.Ir. Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardana Sukawati, M.Si and Minister of Tourism, Sandiaga Uno.
‘I am very enthusiastic and appreciate this event which ended up breaking the record of (VWD) participants and has had a major impact on the revival of Indonesia's tourism and creative economy. This VWD 2022 supports economic revival (in Bali) and job creation,’ said Sandiaga Uno, Tourism and Creative Economy Minister.
The other fact is that this event was published and spread in 17 participating countries, including Indonesia. Countries that will definitely return to visit and enjoy the beautiful panorama and culinary diversity of Indonesia such as The United States, Australia, Austria, Germany, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Philippine, United Kingdom, Spain, Vietnam, France, Finland, Macedonia, Mexico, and Pakistan.
This event seems to have been carefully prepared by providing a Flea Market with 40 sales stands. There were also 34 sales booths for the automotive industry and its supporters.
May all Vespisti feel the positive vibes and euphoria of the epic Vespa World Days 2022 Bali, Indonesia.”
