Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau’s (TCEB) strategy to put into spotlight the different qualities of each MICE city has resulted in the bureau winning bid for Phuket to host TBEX Asia 2021 when some 600 travel bloggers, content creators and social media influencers around the globe will gather at this Andaman paradise to experience its local and cultural identities.
TCEB President, Mr Chiruit Isarangkun Na Ayuthaya said TCEB has developed a strategy for Phuket to create a new brand identity for MICE by highlighting the island’s cultural heritage, traditional trades and indigenous way of life.

ITB Asia successfully concluded on 23 October 2020, rounding off the first virtual event in its 13-year history. The trade show was hosted virtually on the newly established online platform, ITB Community in Asia (ITB Community).

With the virtual platform providing the perfect space for networking, attendees also took part in online business appointments, fuelling confidence in the industry’s future.

What processes must be in place now and what must be done to ensure their travellers are confident that they will remain in safe hands when travelling in a time of a pandemic?

The Australian Event Awards is an outstanding example of the dedication of key industry players in celebrating MICE industry and pursuing its advancement, despite the challenges of Covid-19.
In 2020, four events will be held simultaneously in capital cities across the country and all events will be linked by video technology. This year’s unique Awards Ceremony allows for the local events industry in each state to gather and foster excellence, innovation and unity across the entire events industry, nation-wide.
In line with the calibrated resumption of economic activities as part of the Covid-19 recovery process, Singapore rolls out a roadmap for the MICE & Events industry - Event Industry Resilience Roadmap - that includes best practice guidelines for conferences and exhibitions, tips for hybrid events, and long-term plans to bolster capabilities development in the MICE workforce and enterprises.
Having been hit hard by Covid-19 pandemic since March 2020, Singapore's cruise industry will be restarting gradually with safe cruises sailing from November 2020, having enhanced safety protocols for two cruise lines that are homeported in Singapore. To provide assurance for safe cruising, the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) is developing a mandatory CruiseSafe certification programme, which sets out stringent hygiene and safety measures throughout the passenger journey – from prior to boarding, to after disembarkation.
