Kaohsiung Exhibition Center is the first international exhibition and congress venue on the waterfront in Taiwan. Since April 2014, we have been offering our best services to event organizers, exhibitors and visitors based on our operational guidelines of: safety, comfort, convenience, eco-friendliness, customer-orientation.
In 2016, KEC is also the first venue in South Taiwan to be granted ISO 20121 certification. ISO 20121 is the internationally recognized Event Sustainability Management System, which KEC has successfully implemented through the sponsorship of MEET Taiwan’s Green MICE Industry Pilot Project, led by the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
Kaohsiung Exhibition Center will put ISO 20121 into practice, and thereby influence event organizers, visitors and exhibitors through experience sharing, continuing to lead the development of the MICE industry in South Taiwan.
