One visit to Taipei makes it clear why Taiwan’s capital is ranked among the world’s top MICE cities. It is home to multinational firms, has an extensive and easily navigable public transport system, and boasts no less than four convention and exhibition venues—including the COMPUTEX Taipei, World News Media Congress and Taipei Cycle have been hold here.
Due to its advantageous geographical location, safe and comfortable living environment, as well as comprehensive infrastructure such as transportation, information, communications, medical, and educational systems, Taipei City attracts many multinational corporations, international financial institutions, foreign consulates and business organizations to establish bases here. Important conventions and exhibitions are also held continuously in this city.
The Taoyuan Convention and Exhibition Center is set to open in 2024, with new hotels in the area that complement the city’s upcoming Asia Silicon Valley Innovation and Research Center. It is now easier to traverse the city or even head to Taipei and New Taipei, as the metro systems of all three cities are linked. With construction under way and targeted for completion in 2023, the Taoyuan International Airport Terminal 3 will increase passenger handling capacity to 45 million. The area around the airport is also being developed under the Taoyuan Aerotropolis project, which is the largest infrastructure plan in Taiwan’s history.
Taoyuan's commercial prowess is unmatched: 32 designated industrial parks produce goods that are swiftly exported via Taoyuan International Airport, while the Taoyuan Startup Corridor fuels the research and development of unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAVs), Internet of Things (IoT), AI, robotics, and more. It is also an ideal destination for industrial conventions.
Taichung City is positioning itself as a ""new gateway to the Asia-Pacific"" with land, sea and air ports for global docking and transshipment.
It is also positioned as a cultural and industry hub, serving as an engine to drive the central region's growth and creating a sustainable, comfortable, and safe working and living environment.
Taichung is home to some of Taiwan's—and the world's—major manufacturers: Giant Bicycles, chipmaker TSMC, Garmin, and hundreds of multinational companies conduct research and production in Taichung’s industrial zones. There are also regular exhibitions to showcase the local industries.
Historic, cultured, and buzzing with new developments, Tainan offers a tantalizing blend of attractions and activities for business travelers. The city—Taiwan's oldest and former capital—is easily accessible via high-speed rail, plus numerous upscale hotels have opened in the wake of urban rejuvenation.
Tainan's green energy industries are transforming, with solar energy, LED lighting, and smart electric vehicles fast becoming the foundation of the green energy industry ecosystem. The city government's intent is to have the Shalun Green Energy Science City embrace international standards to become a green energy policy and R&D center. Adjacent to International Convention Center Tainan, the Science City is an ideal venue for sustainable activities.
Long renowned as a hub of logistics and manufacturing industries, the Port of Kaohsiung has evolved and is now characterized by streams of visitors and intelligent services. The “Asia’s New Bay Area” project marks Kaohsiung’s initiative in developing towards industrial transformation, and the MICE industry, a newly-emerging industry in recent years, is one of the focal points. The well-established hardware and software related to MICE, along with Kaohsiung’s iconic image as a maritime city, have come to serve as a phenomenal force to attract more business opportunities for the City’s tourism and MICE industries. It is anticipated that the joint efforts by the government and all sectors of society will put Kaohsiung’s industrial, harbor and cost advantages into full play, thereby enabling it to join the lineup of the world’s major host cities for MICE events.
The Kaohsiung Exhibition Center, Kaohsiung Port Tourism Center, Kaohsiung Pop Music Center, Kaohsiung E-sports Arena, and Kaohsiung Software Park jointly formed the Asia New Bay Area 5G AIoT Innovation Park to demonstrate the latest application technology. Dream Reality Moondream Reality, VR Somatosensory Theater VR Film Lab, and Holo Park Guangyu Floating Theater Life Square all incorporate AR/VR/MR technologies.
