The conference, held both in online and offline formats on December 10 to December 11, has attracted the participation of more than 1,000 guests.
The city will primarily focus on implementing pandemic prevention and control measures, as well as ensuring guest satisfaction, she added.
The success of the MICE tour, An noted, will serve to restore local tourism in a safe, flexible, and effective manner, whilst also adapting to the current pandemic situation.

Furthermore, staff at the conference and all tourists must present certificates showing they have been fully vaccinated, have a safe travel history, and are strictly following the Health Ministry's 5K message.
