Taiwan Tourism is working closely with the trade to further enhance its MICE and incentive offerings for the India market. Those tour operators applying for a group visa for convention delegates, as per the tourism office, the process has been made much simpler. All one needs to do is submit a set of completed forms and required documents, such as passport scans and names of all group members, to the Taiwan Tourism Board (TTB) India office. Approvals are typically granted in seven to 11 days, depending on your group size.
According to Ritushri Dhankher and Reem Khokhar, Representing TTB, “Taiwan has myriad facilities that specifically cater to MICE programmes, from exhibition centres like the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center and the soon-to-launch Tainan Exhibition Center, to first-class hotels to house representatives from all over the world. Apart from hosting programmes the Taiwan MICE Project Office also provides special incentives for foreigners, which include tour recommendations, venue introduction and site inspection assistance.
Taiwan may be known for street food delicacies like XXL chicken and oyster noodles, but the island is also home to countless vegetarian and Indian restaurants, which can range from buffets to fine dining options.
Taiwan is also popular for its night markets, shopping and scenery.” The team also conducted some connect programmes in the South of India. Guests from over 20 companies in Bangalore were invited for a presentation on MICE opportunities in Taiwan. Organised by Taiwan Tourism Bureau (TTB) with travel firm Cox & Kings as part of an ongoing MICE campaign, the event showcased all the reasons why companies should choose Taiwan as a location for MICE events. These include ease of visa application and help with group movements provided by TTB, among others. The Tourism board also aims to introduces the forthcoming Tung Blossom Festival in Taiwan from 30 March to 19 May 2019.
