More Details About What to Expect at the Gathering

The Gathering begins with registration at 8 am on Thursday July 20. The first plenary session begins at 9 am.

On both Thursday & Friday, you’ll begin the day with breakfast followed by a morning of learning from our speaker panel. Sessions will be in either Indonesian or English, and personal headsets will be provided to all attendees with live, professional translation. After lunch together, our afternoons will consist of workshops, several of which will be taught in English. At 4:15 pm, on Thursday you can feel free to take a break as attendees meet with other local partners in break out sessions (in Indonesian). We recommend using the time to rest, grab a massage from a nearby spa, or take a dip in the ocean.

On Friday at 8pm, we will have dinner together at 3 Monkeys Cafe which is a beautiful restaurant right down the street from the hotel with incredible Indonesian/Italian/Australian fusion dishes. This will be an opportunity for our guests to meet our Indonesian board members and Dark Bali staff.

In addition to the Indonesian Anti-Trafficking Gathering, many in our community will be attending the Asia Region Anti Trafficking Conference which takes place July 17-19 in the same hotel. This is a major anti-trafficking conference with attendees flying in from all over the world, but especially representing Asia. There will be around 250 in attendance and the conference will be in English. If you are interested in spending the week to participate in both hotels, you can learn more about the Asia Region Anti-Trafficking Conference at and purchase tickets at a discount through THIS website.

About the Venue

The Indonesia Anti-Trafficking Gathering will be in the Sanur Prime Plaza Hotel in Sanur, Bali. It is a 4 start hotel blocks from the beach in an area with plenty of shops, spas, and restaurants within walking distance. If you’d like to extend your stay in the hotel or arrive early, the cost is around $45 per night for a basic, double occupancy room, or you can upgrade to one of their premier rooms.
