New Kaohsiung Exhibition Centre Opens
The new exhibition venue in southern Taiwan, Kaohsiung Exhibition Center (KEC), is set to officially open on 14th April 2014. KEC was funded by Taiwan’s Bureau of Foreign Trade and will be operated by the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center Cooperation, a member of Uniplan Group.
There are currently more than 30 conferences and 10 exhibitions scheduled to run at KEC. Its first event, Taiwan International Fastener Show, will coincide with the venue’s opening date. Other events scheduled at KEC include TAITRA’s Taiwan International Boat Show and a variety of conferences and meetings.
KEC will feature close to 18,000 m2 of indoor exhibition space across two halls, as well as 7,200 m2 of outdoor exhibition space. The Kaohsiung Exhibition Center Cooperation is reportedly investing a further US$8.3 million to upgrade the venue’s facilities, including telecommunication networks, interior furnishings and F&B outlets.
