What are MEET TAIWAN’S newest MICE developments?
In 2022, MEET TAIWAN co-published with UFI the 2022 Taiwan MICE
Sustainability White Paper, providing Asia with a blueprint for
sustainable MICE events in the post-pandemic era. In 2023, we take a
further step by inviting Taiwan MICE stakeholders to work together,
coming up with a hundred practical actions of promoting MICE
sustainability, called the 100x100 Sustainable Campaign.
We are also launching a MICE Events Carbon Emission Calculator to
help calculate and reduce carbon emissions of MICE events held in
Taiwan. MEET TAIWAN will continue to provide sustainability action plans
for the MICE industry to make Taiwan “the Greentopia of Asia MICE”.
MEET TAIWAN provides an incentive subsidy up to US$16,700 for the
period of bidding international conferences and exhibitions; plus
US$66,700 for exhibitions and US$133,400 for conferences during the
period of holding the events. For corporate meetings, souvenirs and
