Taiwan isn’t just about business, finance, hi-tech, innovation and quality products. It’s also about fun, food, and friends, and Taiwan’s human face shines through in the travel sector of MICE (Meeting, Incentive Travel, Convention, Event/Exhibition).
Taiwan is already a center for MICE travel, with some 120 specialist B2B trade shows annually, including renowned international trade shows such as the world’s second largest ICT show, COMPUTEX TAIPEI, and the prestigious Taipei International Cycle Show.
The island offers far more for the MICE sector than just trade shows, though. Solid academic foundations have fostered a vibrant academic research scene in Taiwan, which is strong in fields ranging from medicine and biotechnology to information technology. Taiwan also has prestigious institutions and hosts numerous international exchanges in such fields as business studies and political science. The success of the 2012 Junior Chamber International World Congress, the 2013 Asia Pacific Cities Summit, the 2014 AIESEC International Congress, and the 2014 FBLS World Congress all demonstrate Taiwan’s strength in holding international conferences. Taiwan will also host 2017 World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT) this September.
The safe and congenial environment, comprehensive infrastructure, rich tourism assets, and fully supportive central and local governments have prompted more and more companies to embrace Taiwan as a MICE destination. Taiwan’s PR, exhibition and conference companies are passionate in assisting with incentive travel customized for every corporate culture and objective.
