Last week, BMW Indonesia took over Plaza Senayan. The originally Munich-based automotive company started the BMW Exhibition at Plaza Senayan on February 15th 2019 with a media brief. During the brief, BMW Indonesia explained their special programs like Drive to Prosperity and Trade-in & Trade-up that have been receiving positive reviews since their introduction earlier last year, and also their latest BMW Financial Services (BFS).

Jodie O’Tania, as Vice President Corporate Communications of BMW Group Indonesia, talked about Drive to Prosperity and Trade-in & Trade-up programs. Both programs have been becoming consumers’ favorite ever since their launch last year, making it easy for consumers to upgrade their vehicles without any fuss and to experience Sheer Driving Pleasure. BMW Indonesia also introduced their newest digital facility, BMW Financial Services (BFS), which is a huge help for future BMW owners.

The exhibition at Main Atrium of Plaza Senayan started, for the grand premier of their latest BMW X, the all-new BMW X4. Guests arrived in style and everyone was enjoying canapé and drinks while waiting for the grand reveal.

As the performance finished, guests were taken from Main Atrium of Plaza Senayan to Fairmont Jakarta to attend the Gentleman’s Dinner hosted by DAMAN Magazine and BMW Indonesia. All guests were taken by BMW cars and dropped at the lobby of Fairmont Jakarta hotel.

The Gentleman’s Dinner was filled with warmth, joy, and a good feast indeed! With top-notch food and drinks from the 1945 Restaurant of Fairmont Jakarta, the wine and dine session went really well and everybody had a good time that night.

BMW Indonesia’s Head of Marketing, Daren Ching, also talked about what we could expect from BMW Indonesia this year.
