Taiwan lifts restrictions on MICE events to boost post-epidemic domestic demand


28 June 2020: The Bureau of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Economic Affairs and Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) jointly announced that Taiwan has lifted domestic restrictions on the MICE industry. From June to August 2020, over 50 events are being scheduled including shows, concerts, and activities. Beverages, bakery items, pets, outdoor activities, gaming and more will be showcased in response to the strong domestic demand in the post pandemic era.

Chen Cheng-Chi, Director General of the Bureau of Foreign Trade, said that the government has supported the MICE industry through a COVID-19 bailout plan. Given that our borders are still under control, digital transformation of the industry is imperative.

The Taiwan Exhibition & Convention Association (TECA), Taiwan Convention & Exhibition Association (TCEA), venue operators and show organizers were present at the press conference organized by TAITRA to announce that MICE events have reopened under epidemic prevention guidance.
