Mobiliari Group, publisher of market-leading high-society magazine Indonesia Tatler, will hold this year’s Indonesia Tatler Ball in conjunction with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). The Indonesia Tatler-Panda Ball is to be held on November 29, 2013, at the Shangri-La Jakarta.

The theme for the Ball is “A Tribute to the Sea”, since it is specifically aimed at raising awareness of the WWFs Coral Triangle Initiative. This initiative is a partnership of six countries formed in 2007 to address urgent threats facing the coastal and marine resources of one of the most biologically diverse and ecologically rich regions on earth. The Coral Triangle is a geographical term that refers to a roughly triangular shape of marine waters between the Pacific and Indian oceans, and includes Indonesia within its boundary.

The Indonesia Tatler Ball is the highlight of the year’s social calendar and counts politicians, ambassadors, local dignitaries and other VVIPs among its guests. This year, and in keeping with its theme, the Ball will also be attended by WWF Coral Triangle Initiative Ambassador and celebrity chef Bobby Chinn, who will oversee the event’s gala dinner with the theme of “sustainable seafood”. WWF Ambassador Nadya Hutagalung will also host the event alongside local TV personality Dalton Tanonaka.
