Taiwan’s world-class congress infrastructure
A business gateway between Asia, North America and Europe, Taiwan has a mature events infrastructure, excellent international flight access and respected academia, in addition to a raft of venues and attractions. Matched with dedicated assistance provided by the MEET TAIWAN Promotion Program, services and support are offered to international association event organisers that can help save time, effort and money.
With an established manufacturing base and burgeoning high-tech industry, Taiwan is ideally situated to support international meetings through its professional industry background, resources and related knowledge. Its well-developed academic research base has helped attract large conferences including the 11th Asia Pacific Heart Rhythm Society Scientific Session and the 12th AIMS Conference on Dynamical Systems Differential Equations and Applications in 2018.
Next year will see the country host the 2020 32nd CINP World Congress of Neuropharmacology, the 2020 ICCA Congress and 2020 51st General Assembly of the World Trade Centers Association -WTCA-.
Taiwan provides unrivalled business opportunities, with a stable economy, low unemployment and dynamic entrepreneurial spirit – leading Taiwan industries range from ICT products to bicycles and fasteners.
Taiwan is also one of the safest nations in Asia with a very low crime rate and excellent public health services.
Many well-established venues are available, such as the multi-functional Taipei International Conference Center (TICC) that offers flexible spaces to meet and eat under one roof.
The Kaohsiung Exhibition Center (KEC) is a waterfront multi-purpose convention and exhibition centre, part of Kaohsiung’s maritime district’s ambitious redevelopment. The iconic venue boasts a bold wave-like design and is equipped with indoor and outdoor exhibition areas. It has a column-free hall and second-level conference rooms that can accommodate up to 2,000. The total capacity is up to 4,000.
Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center Hall 2 was recently completed on a 3.36-hectare site opposite Hall 1. The nine-floor building offers conference space for 2,400 delegates and 2,362 exhibition booths. The combined centre is an exciting choice for large-scale international events.
Many of Taiwan’s MICE venues have received green credentials such as the Nangang Exhibition Center, while KEC is a recipient of a Green Building award and a gold award from the International Awards for Livable Communities.
With an excellent public transport system, visitors to Taiwan can easily commute via MRT, buses and high-speed rail connections.
Pre- and post-tours
Bursting with spectacular historic buildings and breathtaking scenery, Taiwan is an attractive destination for delegates. Seasonal activities include a broad range of choices, from traditional and cultural to modern and groundbreaking. In fact no other destination celebrates as many traditional festivals as Taiwan does. There are also eight national parks and 13 national scenic areas to explore, plus activities such as river-rafting, cycling and mountain climbing. Gentler pursuits include experiencing local culture with a traditional tea ceremony that starts with picking tea leaves or visiting one of the many temples. Delicious and varied cuisine is another plus for delegates and organisers.
