The focus is on its cultural multidiversity and the beauty of the Taipei experience and promotion of the city’s new facilities and exciting activites, enhancing the visibility and power of the Taipei brand in the incentive travel market. At a promotional gathering for international media correspondents, TCG-DOIT Senior Specialist Chuen-Huey Jiang drew the name of a lucky winner of a free 3-day, 2-night Taipei experience package that include free airline tickets and a stay at the 5-star Taipei Marriott Hotel, and also unveiled a brand-new Taipei souvenir-gift item, “Honey Taipei,” to give foreign buyers an exclusive taste-test.
In addition to previously announced events being staged in Taipei in association with its year of acclaim as the 2016 World Design Capital, including Velo-city Global 2016, being held in March next year, and Universiade Taipei, being held in 2017, it was also announced that the city will be hosting the prestigious AdAsia 2015 Taipei in November, for the first time in 14 years. The city’s unending lineup of key international events clearly demonstrates its possession of comprehensive hardware and software MICE facilities, rich tourism resources, and unique city charms and attractions, which continually entice organizers to stage major large-scale activities here.
In the second half of this year, a host of all-new venues will be joining the ranks of the city’s MICE facilities. The Taipei Marriott Hotel is positioned as an “international conference and exhibition hotel.” Already engaged in trial operations, and scheduled to have its formal opening before the end of the year, it offers a banquet center that can accommodate 1200, and a location nearby upscale shopping malls. The Courtyard Marriott Taipei is located in Nangang, a transport hub where the three local forms of rail transport converge (High Speed Rail, regular rail, Taipei Metro). It is also scheduled to open before the end of the year. Hall 2 of the Nangang Exhibition Hall, to be completed in 2016, will handle 2,350 booths. In combination Hall 1 and Hall 2 will make Nangang Exhibition Hall a facility of the largest scale, able to accommodate 5,000 standard booths, enabling the staging of even more ambitious international exhibitions. In addition to creating more international procement opportunities, the increased flows of international visitors and participants will also stimulate enormous business opportunities in the Taipei tourism sector.
