ITE MICE is the only Business & MICE Travel Expo in Greater Pearl River Delta, will be held at Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Since its launching in 2006, ITE MICE has been co-locating with ITE. At first it was for ITE MICE to leverage on the well established ITE which draws thousands of regional trade buyers and visitors. Soon the co-locating generated synergies that benefit all, from exhibitors of MICE and leisure travel to trade and corporate visitors.
In 2010, the combined ITE MICE and ITE drew 11464 trade and corporate visitors in the two trade days, with 17% from China and 9% from abroad. By sectors, some 5500 were from travel agents or operators, over 2800 being corporate visitors and 800 from media. That represents, in the 5 years when ITE and ITE MICE were co-located, a three fold increase in the number of corporate visitors.
Many MICE trips involve elements of leisure travel. An online survey held in November 2009 on our past corporate visitors found over 60% of the respondents collect info on destinations in our travel expo.
Exhibitors can choose to house both leisure and MICE in one big stand or separately. The key point is that we have a separate visitor promotion for MICE and will publish list all MICE exhibitors, irrespective where they are located in our expo, before and at the expo. Further, we staged a Corporate Seminar Day with full day of related MICE seminars on the second day of our expo, this year drew over 1300 pre-registrations, up 35%! In all, we had over 100 exhibitors targeting the MICE market. In particular Hong Kong, Indonesia and Macau pavilions had significant presences of MICE suppliers.
