Bridging the Global MICE Business The potential of the global meetings incentives conventions and exhibitions (MICE) industry is evident. Statistics indicate a total of 400 000 conferences and exhibitions are organised worldwide every year at the total outlay of US 280 billion. [Source International Congress & Convention Association (ICCA)] With the meetings and incentive travel industry growing at an unprecedented rate China has been identified as one of two countries in Asia making a big impact on the global MICE stage. The organisation of mega events like the Beijing Olympics in 2008 and the Shanghai World Expo in 2010 has put the country on the map as a choice MICE destination and major Chinese cities have become an increasingly popular option for international and local companies. Despite the global financial crisis Chinese travellers display strong enthusiasm for outbound travel with 85 per cent of 4 000 respondents indicating they would definitely or probably travel overseas within the year either for leisure or business a similar percentage as that in 2008 in a recent AC Nielson survey. [Source China Outbound Travel Monitor 2009 ACNielson China]. With its long history and rich cultural heritage China is an ideal destination for MICE travellers and an excellent source of potential business for outbound incentive travel. World Expo 2010 to boost China MICE activities The World Expo in 2010 serves as an additional boost to the already flourishing China MICE industry. Some 238 international organisations and countries from around the world have confirmed their participation as of May 2009 and an expected 70 million international and local visitors are expected to visit the bustling city of Shanghai over the 184-day Expo which starts 1 May. MICE activities are expected to increase with so many international visitors attending the World Expo extravaganza. Businesses should maximise the opportunities prior during and post- World Expo to further extend their footprint in the Middle Kingdom. To cater to the increase in expected visitor arrivals detailed plans have been implemented in the host city of Shanghai. Hotels are also gearing themselves to meet the increased demands with over 500 star-rated hotels and 4 000 non-star rated hotels to provide up to 500 000 beds by 2010.
