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:

Temperature checks

  • All visitors (including exhibition construction workers and delivery personnel) entering a venue will have their temperature checked for signs of fever, either with a handheld infrared thermometer or a fully-automatic infrared thermal imaging sensor.
  • Anyone with a fever will not be allowed to enter the venue.

Venues

  • Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are available at every entry and other convenient areas.
  • Elevators and escalators are sanitized daily. Floors, toilets, corridors, public areas, and air-conditioned rooms are disinfected with diluted bleach or an alcohol mixture every week.
  • Forced air is circulated three times a day to increase indoor air ventilation and accelerate air circulation.
  • Epidemic prevention information is posted on a notice board and/or broadcasted on display panels.

Staff

  • All staff encountering visitors must implement self-health management and have their temperatures taken every day, plus wear facemasks while working.
  • During large events, extra staff are stationed at entrance and exit checkpoints, in addition to other necessary areas for anti-epidemic prevention services.

Participant and visitor health

  • When attending events, everyone is advised to wear masks and wash their hands or disinfect them frequently with hand sanitizer. If a visitor’s temperature is higher than 37.5 degrees Celsius, they will receive on-site assistance immediately.
  • At large tradeshows, medical staff are stationed nearby.
  • Anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19—or any other disease or illness—can expect the highest standards of medical assistance from Taiwan’s world leading healthcare and medical system.

MEET TAIWAN continues to support all domestic and foreign meeting planners with overcoming the impact of the global pandemic and to promote Taiwan’s high-quality resources and services to the world.
