The first Rinyukai Indonesia Super Koi Show held in 2012. I am sure I will not easily forget my presence there! The show, where only a couple of months could be used for preparation, was truly amazing and very, very, impressive. I have never experienced such an interesting and catchy show where a lot of attention was spend towards its appearance.Felix Denanta, appointed as a chairman of the Rinyukai Indonesia in January this year, had a really though job to prepare this event. His aim was to set up a show to give visitors such an impression that they would never forget their visit. I think he succeeded greatly in that. A real arena as the base of the show, 320 show vats, 1456 Koi entered by 308 participants, sponsors such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati and Johnnie Walker, a lottery with prizes like a real car, ten flat screens, five scooters and ten Blackberries, an auction, show parties, 32 international judges (28 of them were Japanese Koi breeders/dealers!), the presence of the Indonesian minister of Marine Affairs and Fisheries and the Governor of Jakarta to officially open the show and many, many more!
I am truly impressed by the show. The show ground itself was build-up in only one-and-a-half day, from scratch to a complete show! Hundreds of people have worked 24 hours a day to make this possible. I really felt honored to be invited as a reporter of the first edition of the Rinyukai Indonesia Super Koi Show and to also experience the complete program besides the show. Introduction parties, gala-dinner at Ritz Carlton ballroom, it all made a big impression on me. Thanks for the great show, Rinyukai Indonesia Super Koi Show team and hope to see you again in 2013!
