MICE Market Trends:

Rising globalization of businesses

The expansion of companies and their operations beyond domestic borders, thereby necessitating the need for the organization of international meetings, conferences, and exhibitions worldwide is boosting the MICE market growth. According to a report released by Standard Chartered Bank, it is indicated that while corporations in Europe and the Americas are prioritizing their home regions of Europe (84%) and North America (74%) as a source of growth, Asia Pacific (55%) remains a target for their international expansion strategies. They are also interested in South America (38%), Middle East (32%) and Africa (17%). For example, ACV Auctions, the $481-million US-based digital automotive marketplace for car dealers and commercial partners, entered the Indian market with its technology development center in Chennai. It started the centre with 15 employees and plans to employ 100 employees by the end of the year. This globalization trend serves as a significant driver for the meeting, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE) industry by increasing the need for platforms where business leaders, industry experts, and professionals from around the world can collaborate, share insights, and explore new opportunities.

Increasing economic development of host cities and countries

The MICE industry plays a significant role in the economic development of host cities and countries by attracting large numbers of business tourists. The exhibition industry contributes USD 325 billion to the global economy and approximately 32,000 exhibitions are held in a year across the globe. MICE events also contribute to increased spending in the local economy on hotels, restaurants, transportation, and leisure activities. For instance, the MICE sector generated Rs. 3 lac crores worth of business through exhibitions held in India. There are 25 purpose-built venues in the country for hosting exhibitions with a total indoor capacity of 4,37,000 sqm. These investments not only improve the infrastructure and attractiveness of the destination but also reinforce the region's reputation as a leading hub for business and professional events.

Growing focus on sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR)

There has been a rising focus on balancing the environmental impact that was caused by traveling internationally. According to the World Travel and Tourism Council, between 2010 and 2019, absolute greenhouse gas emissions from the travel and tourism industry had risen at an average rate of 2.5% a year, reaching 4,131 billion kilos of carbon dioxide (CO2). This is around 8.1% of global emissions. In recent years, there has been a growing emphasis on sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the global business community, with an increasing number of organizations and attendees prioritizing environmentally friendly and socially responsible events. The demand for sustainable MICE activities due to the rising environmental impact of large-scale events and a commitment to minimize this impact through green practices, such as waste reduction, energy efficiency, and sustainable sourcing, is favoring the market growth.
