MICE industry


 

The Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Events (MICE) industry plays a significant role in the hospitality sector. Events range in scale and complexity, and can take place in purpose-built multi-functional halls or open spaces outdoor.

 

 

Working relationships

 

Event management is a complex operation that requires the execution of a wide array of activities. This is often fulfilled by multiple contractors engaged by the event management company for different aspects of the event, from venue, staging to entertainment and food catering.
