Taiwan's EXPO Dome Converted Into Convention and Exhibition Centre
One of the venues of the Taipei International Flora Exposition, the EXPO Dome, located in Yuanshan Park Area, has been turned into a convention and exhibition centre. There were no specifics reported in terms of size and layout of the venue. However, the first event held at EXPO Dome, the Taipei Food Festival World Championship of Cookery, reportedly occupied 10,006 sq. m. of exhibition space, with 104 booths and a total of 16,000 attendees.
EXPO Dome is managed by the Industrial Development Board (IDB) of the Taipei City government. IDB claims the venue’s event calendar is fully booked until the end of November this year.
Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
