Taiwan provides site-surveying service: 360-degree panoramic images of the interior of five major convention and exhibition centers in Taiwan available online

2014/12/18

The "Taiwan’s MICE Promotion Program" (MEET TAIWAN) project, run by the Bureau of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Economic Affairs, provides 360-degree panoramic images of the interior of several major convention/exhibitions centers in Taiwan through Google Maps’ state-of-the-art 360-degree panoramic photography technology. So far, the 360-degree panoramic images inside the five major exhibition/convention centers, such as Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition Center Hall 1, Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall, Kaohsiung Exhibition Center, Taipei International Convention Center and International Convention Center Kaohsiung, have been created and officially published on Google Maps.  

This technology integrates 360-degree panoramic photography technology and web mapping technology, and will enable potential organizers of conventions or exhibitions to survey via the internet the interior layout and overall environment of the exhibition/convention venues as if they did this in person. It is convenient for the organizers if they can survey the exhibition/convention venues online during the preparatory stages. With this advantage, Taiwan will have more international business opportunities. What's more, Taiwan's MICE (Meetings, Incentive Travel, Conferences and Exhibitions) industry will stand out on the global stage for the ability of applying the latest technology in the exhibition/convention centers.

Compared to other international renowned venues, which normally provide only panoramic images shot from several fixed angles, our project is integrated with Google Street View (provided by Google) so that the users can easily have a picture of the exterior of the venue, the connecting traffic lines and other public facilities. In addition to the function of interior panoramic images, the operation units of the venues are able to upload illustrative photos regarding their services, such as the snapshots of events and activities, the furnishing in conference rooms, the facilities in VIP rooms, to name just a few. The aforementioned service is now accessible for the operation unit of the exhibition/convention venues. In addition, an interactive virtual interior experience zone is set up at the website of "MEET TAIWAN" (www.meettaiwan.com) so that the organizers of exhibitions and conventions can use it to their advantage when fighting for opportunities to host events in Taiwan.

Lighting Up Taichung International Convention and Exhibition Center and the Green Museumbrary

The 2024 Central Taiwan Lantern Festival will kick off at Taichung Central Park on February 16. In celebration of the Lantern Festival, Director Chen Da-Tian of the Taichung City Government's Construction Bureau will illuminate the Taichung International Convention and Exhibition Center and the Green Museumbrary. The unique appearance of these two buildings will be clearly visible both during the day and at night. As visitors play sports, take walks, or admire the lanterns at Central Park, they can also take in the view of the future landmark of Taichung from afar, take photos, and share them with friends and family.Director Chen explained that the spotlights on the eaves of the exhibition hall at the Taichung International Convention and Exhibition Center accentuate the architectural roof trusses and skyline. From the 76-meter-tall giant dragon main lantern area, visitors can admire the beauty of the exhibition center's magic carpet roof at night. As for the Green Museumbrary, the museum lobby adjacent to the park and the interior lights of the glass curtain wall at the administrative building facing Zhongke Road will also be illuminated, presenting visual transparency and the elegant artistic ambiance of the architecture.According to the Construction Bureau, the Taichung International Convention and Exhibition Center will be able to house 2,360 exhibition booths and a large international conference hall with 2,200 seats. International exhibitions and conferences held at the exhibition center will drive the development of the software, science, and industrial parks in central Taiwan. This will attract domestic and foreign companies to settle there, contributing to Taichung City Government's vision of "Prosperous Taichung, Wonderful Life". On the other hand, the Green Museumbrary, in addition to its distinctive architectural appearance, features the design principles of "innovation, people-oriented, and sharing". The museum and library both adopted co-constructed architecture, integrating various spaces within the buildings to stimulate visitor curiosity for knowledge exploration. The two buildings are independent yet interconnected in terms of shared resources. The Green Museumbrary's world-class architecture aims to inspire artistic readership and cultural dreams of Taichung's citizens.Source: Yahoo News https://tw.news.yahoo.com/%E5%8F%B0%E4%B8%AD%E5%9C%8B%E9%9A%9B%E6%9C%83%E5%B1%95%E4%B8%AD%E5%BF%83-%E7%B6%A0%E7%BE%8E%E5%9C%96%E9%BD%8A%E9%BB%9E%E7%87%88-102644411.html?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbS8&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAACoGFpB2Nxncu5iypuwsgLM-hvRSKcXiYpIfcFtGC64p4PE0jnFQbEyWgoDRzMqUXlPGAY4yS5O7hoOsaYJ2p9GWOepQKj0myM89hTQyWT2RbCsg5tH8NBRNDdR-96VVLBq-byUevxt7nyGWUIe5pspwXhp_iV9XpFbdzQX8Rk_K
