Taiwan Ready to Reopen to the World
Over 80 events to take place in Taipei International Convention Center (TICC) in July and August.
Thanks to the stabilization of Taiwan’s coronavirus numbers, the Taiwan government has eased epidemic prevention measures, including restrictions on the number of attendees at venue events. On June 11, the Bureau of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Economic Affairs and Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) jointly made the official announcement, reopening domestic MICE that will follow updated public health regulations.
Taiwan’s convention and exhibition industry has been severely impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic. To prevent and control further infections, Taiwan’s Central Epidemic Command Center, under the Centers for Disease Control, formerly restricted the entry of foreign tourists to Taiwan beginning March 19, 2020, and suspended gatherings exceeding 100 people indoors and 500 people outdoors from March 25, 2020, to avoid potential cluster infections.
After domestic gathering control measures were eased, momentum has gathered and current figures show there have already been more than 100 large and small exhibition events held or planned in Taiwan from June 11 to the end of August. In addition to exhibitions for beverages, baking, pet supplies, outdoor sports, video games, and e-sports, there are concerts and other events. Businesses and individuals are welcome to return to exhibition venues to reestablish domestic demand in the emerging post-pandemic era.
TAITRA, Taiwan’s foremost nonprofit trade promotion organization, operates and manages four exhibition and convention venues in Taiwan. During this time of unprecedented challenges, TAITRA ensures the health and safety of exhibitors and visitors with full measures being enforced at the Taipei World Trade Center (TWTC), Taipei Nangang Exhibition Hall 1 and Hall 2 (TaiNEX 1 and 2), and Taipei International Convention Center (TICC).
Specific measures include:
