If you are based in Bali, or plan to visit Bali, a sourcing tour is a great way to meet new partners for your business. During a sourcing tour you will be accompanied by our driver and a guide from our team, who will be available to provide information and consultation about the processes. Our guide will also serve as a translator during meetings met the artisans (if needed) and assist to make sure no important topics are missed in the discussions.
A Sourcing Tour can take one or two days, depending on your needs. The schedule will be customized, based on your needs. We will have a meeting with you in preparation to the tour to understand your project and needs, such as whether you are looking to source available products for wholesale from the supplier, or looking for artisans to work on custom projects. We will also take into account your estimated order quantities, to make sure we will introduce you to makers with the right capacity for your project.
After the Sourcing Tour we will be more than happy to continue working with you and offer our sample development, production management and/or quality control services. However, you are also free to continue working with the artisans directly. During the Sourcing Tour you will meet directly with the production partners, and we will also provide you with a list of all contact details and data of the places and people we have visited during the tour, so you will be able to contact them directly if needed.
A typical Sourcing Tour will start at 09.30AM from our office in Denpasar, and finish around 06.00PM. We will usually visit up to 5 artisans or suppliers per day. It is possible to book pick-up and drop-off service from and to your accommodation with our driver. Lunch will be provided during the tour.
To allow enough time to prepare the tour, and to avoid we are fully booked at your preferred date, we recommend booking your sourcing tour at least 30 days in advance.
All tours are private and custom designed for your needs. If you have a custom request for a sourcing tour with your group, or if you would like to combine a sourcing tour with a workshop or other activities, please feel free to enquire, we will be happy to discuss and make a custom program for you.
