KANIGARAN – Wali Kota Probolinggo, Rukmini meminta gelaran Semipro (Seminggu di Kota Probolinggo) tahun ini lebih spektakuler. Hal tersebut disampaiakan Rukmini di depan salah satu EO (event organizer) yang menawarkan jasanya untuk menggarap Semipro 2018. EO tersebut memaparkan konsepnya di ruang Sabha Bina Praja, Senin (26/2).

“Kita pengalaman menggelar Semipro 2016 dan 2017 menggunakan EO. Hasilnya meriah sekali. Tahun lalu, kita gelar Semipro tanpa EO. Sengaja untuk mengangkat budaya lokal saja. Namun respon masyarakat kurang bagus. Nah tahun ini harus lebih ramai dari tahun-tahun sebelumnya. Untuk itu EO bertanggungjawab membuat gelaran Semipro 2018 jauh lebih spektakuler,” ujar Rukmini. 

Meski demikian, tahun ini dipastikan tidak akan mengundang Duta Besar negara-negara sahabat seperti tahun 2016. Hanya saja, Rukmini meminta jadwalnya disesuaikan dengan kedatangan kapal pesiar di Kota Probolinggo. “kalau memungkinkan, jadwal pawai atau pameran produk unggulan dipaskan dengan jadwal kedatangan cruise ke Kota Probolinggo. Tahun ini masih ada 6 cruise yang berencana bersandar di Kota Probolinggo,” tambah Wali Kota. 

Dalam kesempatan itu, Wali Kota juga mengkritik festival Jaran Bodhag yang hanya diikuti beberapa sanggar tari. “Festival Jaran Bodhag kalau bisa dibuat kolosal. Bisa 1000 peserta yang ikut. Kan banyak itu anak-anak sekolah. Kita ambil 10 terbaik. Itu jauh akan lebih meriah. Jangan hanya festival seperti tahun-tahun lalu,” pinta Rukmini. 

Kepada EO, jika dana yang disipkan Pemerintah Kota tidak mencukupi, Rukmini meminta mereka mencari sponsor. “Kita fasilitasi sponsor-sponsor itu untuk memasarkan produknya. Kita pastikan mereka mendapat tempat yang baik di sini. Dengan demikian, aka nada banyak kegiatan yang tarafnya tidak hanya lokal, tapi juga nasional bahkan internasional,” harap Wali Kota. 

Ali Usmadi, Manager Exhibition Program dari EO yang memaparkan jasanya mengungkapkan konsep gelaran Semipro 2018 jika EOnya bisa ditunjuk sebagai penyelenggara. “Kami akan usung tema Lestari Budayaku, Mendunia Kreasiku. Nanti kami akan menggelar Probolinggo International Art and Culture Festival. Kita sudah mensounding ke beberapa Negara, seperti Turki, Korea, dan Rusia. Sejauh ini masih Rusia yang sudah confirm mau bergabung dengan event yang kami selenggarakan, “ ungkap Ali. (abdurhamzah/humas)

 

Probolinggo Mayor, Rukmini, requested that Semipro event (a week in Probolinggo City) this year should be more spectacular. This was delivered by Rukmini in front of one of the EO (event organizers) who offered their services to organize Semipro 2018. The EO presented the concept in Shaba Bina Praja room on Monday (26/2).

“We have an experience of holding Semipro 2016 and 2017 using EO. The event was lively entertaining. Last year, we held Semipro without EO. It was deliberately to raise local culture only. But the citizens’ response was not good. Well, this year must be more crowded than in previous one. For that, EO is responsible for making Semipro 2018 event much more spectacular,” said Rukmini.

Even though, this year’s event would not invite Ambassadors of friendly countries such as 2016 event. Rukmini just asked that the schedule of Semipro to be adjusted to the arrival of cruise ships in the city. “If possible, the cultural parade schedule or the local product exhibition should be adjusted to the cruise arrival schedule to Probolinggo City. This year there are still 6 cruises that plan to come to the city,” added the Mayor.

On that occasion, the Mayor also criticized “Jaran Bodhag” festival which was only followed by a number of dance studios. “If possible, Jaran Bodhag Festival should be made in colossal. 1000 participants can participate. There are many students. We take the best 10. It will be far more spectacular, not just a common festival,” asked Rukmini.

To EO, if the funds provided by the City Government are insufficient, Rukmini asks them to find sponsors. “We facilitate the sponsorship to market their products. We will make sure they get a good place here. Therefore, there will be many activities which are not only local, but also national and international,” said the Mayor.

Ali Usmadi, Manager of the Exhibition Program from EO who explained his services revealed the concept of the Semipro 2018 title if his side is appointed as the organizer. “We will stretch the theme ‘My Sustainable Culture, My Global Creation’. Later we will hold Probolinggo International Art and Culture Festival. We have negotiated with several countries, such as Turkey, Korea and Russia. So far, it is still Russia who have confirmed to join the event,” said Ali.
