This year, Taipei City figures amongst Lonely Planet’s ‘top 10 best cities to travel to in the world’. The destination is back at this ITB Asia to present its recently enhanced MICE offering, with the opening of Taipei Performing Arts Center and Taipei Music Center.
Thanks to its cultural diversity, proximity to nature experiences, bustling food scene and top-level infrastructure, Taipei is already one of Asia’s leading MICE destinations. The addition of two new venues gives MICE organisers even more reasons to choose the destination for their next event.
The Taipei Performing Arts Center and the Taipei Music Center, opened in 2020, are enhancing the city’s skyline with their contemporary and futuristic architecture. Both venues add over 7,000 available seats to the MICE offer in Taipei.
Comprising three theatres, the Taipei Performing Arts Center offers both indoor and outdoor multi-purpose spaces. The 1,500 seat Grand Theater and the 800 seat multiform theater can be combined to become a 2,300 Super theater, equipped with perfect facilities for large conferences, meetings and performances.
The Taipei Music Center is the heart of Asia’s Mandarin pop music industry. The 5,000 seat Performance Hall connects the Cultural Hall and the Creative Hub, both dedicated to the preservation and development of music in Taiwan.
For Taipei City government, “the Taipei MICE Industry is ready to welcome International MICE groups and has more to offer than ever before. With new venues opening up, our friendly locals are looking forward to showing our diverse cultural offerings, our famous food scene, the beautiful and natural scenery that surrounds our vibrant city. Our government has worked hard and has been successful in balancing safety and travel in the way we managed the pandemic over the last two years. So we are proud to have been selected as one of the Top 10 best cities to visit in 2022 by Lonely Planet.”
