As a cultural and creative industry exhibition expansion platform, the ICCIE helps Taiwan's industry stakeholders to interact with their international counterparts, creating business opportunities for cooperation and trade.
We then select and collect outstanding works from the annual expo to participate in international exhibitions in Europe (TENT London Fair; Masion & Objet in Paris), the United States (Licensing Expo in Las Vegas), Japan (Interior Lifestyle Tokyo), China (Shenzehn Int'l Culture Fair; Hong Kong Gifts & Premium Fair), and more.
In 2013, a total of 564 businesses, 1,035 booths, and over 120 international buyers from 19 countries around the world attended the 4-day expo in Taipei.
To aid Taiwan's cultural and creative industries in expanding market access domestically and globally, every year since 2010 the Ministry has organized the International Cultural and Creative Industry Exposition (ICCIE).
As a cultural and creative industry exhibition expansion platform, the ICCIEhelps Taiwan's industry stakeholders to interact with international ones, creating business opportunities for cooperation and trade.
The Ministry uses "Household items and gifts,” "Museum products,” "Cultural and creative exhibitions,” and other similar ideas to invite retail channel contact, agents, and other types of international buyers and curators to participate in expositions.
In addition to helping cultural and creative industry parties to accumulate experience in market expansion and exports, in the long term the creative expo will help Taiwan establish channels for international interaction within the cultural and creative industry, thus improving Taiwan's output and internationalization.
Moreover, to facilitate medium-, small-, and even micro-industry actors to enter international markets, the Ministry uses the imagery of Taiwan and each year selects and collects outstanding works and people from the cultural and creative fields to participate in exhibitions inEurope, Japan, mainlandChina, Hong Kong and other international destinations.
Arrangements are also made for participants with merchandise, boutique, retailand other channels as well as organizing partnerships, aiding industry expansion in overseas networks, and expanding the scale of Taiwan's local market.
