5th Apr, 2016

Taipei was selected as the host city for the 2021 Rotary International Convention (RIC), an annually rotating global event. It is expected that 36,000 Rotarians, including over 10,000 global attendees, will join the Convention.

MEET TAIWAN, the flagship MICE promotion project led by the Taiwanese government,continues to reach for higher goals and devotes much effort towards inviting international organisations to Taiwan. As a testament to the Program's efforts, Taiwan will be the host country for the 2021 Rotary Convention. Supported by the Taiwan Rotary Club Association, the event promises to be the largest international convention Taiwan has held in twenty years. 

“The comprehensive facilities, convenient accessibility of the venues and over ten 4- and 5-star hotels located along the MRT Wenhu and Bannan lines were key factors in the selection of Taipei as the host city to the 2021 Rotary Convention. Taiwan is considered an eco-friendly and convenient destination for overseas visitors”,Walter Yeh, Executive Vice President of TAITRA, Taiwan External Trade Development Council, said.

To support the bid for the Convention, MEET TAIWAN made tremendous efforts, provided professional strategic consultations, and collected endorsement letters from central and local government administrations for the Taiwan Rotary Club Association. To capitalize on the enormous business opportunities associated with the 2021 Rotary Convention in Taipei, MEET TAIWAN will work with travel agencies to offer over 30 custom itineraries for international visitors so they may make the most of their stay in Taiwan.
