Another aspect of the scheme is spectators are limited to 5 in each room for the preliminaries. This will force distribution of visitors to mostly all the debates. With around 80 participating teams in a competition using a four-side format, there will only be around 20 chambers. Visitors must quickly find the favourite rooms or be satisfied with a chamber that may not meet their expectations.
The scheme might sound new for Indonesian spectators who are accustomed to full public access on campus but it is a positive change from the idea of blocking the public from seeing the first major international debate tournament in Jakarta. At least with this plan, coaches, supporters, friends and family can motivate their teams and ABP 2012 can be part of the growth of Indonesian competitive debating.
