The 8 Sectors of the Tourism Industry
Meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions also known as MICE industry is a type of Tourism where large groups of people come together for a particular purpose. Meeting, events and conferences have grown to be a very important and valuable tourism generator since the 1950's and has become an important source of income for the travel industry. Meetings and conferences create demand for services that are provided by the other sectors of Tourism such as transportation, attractions and accommodations. The meetings, events and conferences business is now a multi-billion dollar a year industry and is estimated that more than 100 000 meetings and more than 60 000 conferences are held in Canada annually. Most of the business meetings in Canada were regional up until the late 1950's which means that meetings would have been held in the same province or area that the company is located. This was because long distance travel was impractical. People traveled mainly by rail or by road when traveling long distances back then. Nowadays with cheaper and more reliable airlines companies and businesses can afford to go to different countries for their meetings and conferences.
Meeting, Events, and Conferences
