Wikimedia Indonesia hosted the very successful and inaugural East, Southeast Asia, and Pacific Conference held in Bali during 5-6 May, with the objective of promoting collaboration with regional Wikimedia affiliates and capacity building. Some of the WMF sessions were also the same from the Wikimedia Conference in Berlin but with a tighter time set-aside for the sessions. However ESEAP allows for better networking with neighbouring affiliates and feedback on programmes and events other affiliates have had.

Some of the feedback received during and post event was to have it a three day conference to allow for some sessions to be longer than an hour and the size of the conference should be kept small, which some attendees felt better interactions and collaborations with regional Wikimedia affiliates and not become a size like the Wikimedia Conference.
