Taiwan MICE Development

Taiwan has actively worked to build facilities that specifically cater to MICE programs. Currently serving northern Taiwan are the Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition Hall and the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center Hall 1. Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center Hall 2 will open in March 2019, whereupon total exhibition space in Taipei will exceed 5,000 booths. For the southern part of the island, the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center commenced operations in 2014, and the Tainan Exhibition Center will open in 2021. In addition, the Taiwanese government plans to build exhibition and convention centers in Taoyuan and Taichung, strengthening Taiwan's MICE industry and ensuring a broader selection of venue choices for meetings, incentive tours, conventions, and exhibitions.

The solid and advanced industry base of Taiwan results in over 80 annual professional exhibitions representing sectors ranging from IT/electronics, machinery, bicycles, automobiles, sports, food, stationery, and giftware, to medicine, healthcare, and others. Many become world known exhibitions such as Computex Taipei, which ranks number two in the world, and the very popular Taipei Cycle Show. UFI's report shows that Taiwan’s average exhibition space is the second largest among Asia-Pacific countries. There are more than 20 Taiwanese PEOs capable of organizing large professional trade shows and, based on their successful experiences, they can assist customers with opening up global markets and matching ideal business opportunities.

Taiwan has been in a global leading position for its research quality in medicine, information technology, and science sectors, plus maintains close interactions with related international associations and societies. This helps make Taiwan both a professional and mature environment for international conferences. Solid academic foundations have fostered a prolific academic research scene in Taiwan, with strengths in medicine, biotechnology, and information technology, while business and political science institutions undertake countless international exchanges. Taiwan demonstrates its vast capabilities when hosting international conferences.
