Many enterprises started mainstreaming environment protection in recent years. The “2018 Macao International Environmental Co-operation Forum & Exhibition” (2018MIECF) will have a series of events in the “Green Business Co-operation Day”, including the Green Forum and agreement signing ceremonies, which will be held on Thursday, 12th April at 14:30 in the Sicily Room of the Venetian Macao. The Forum will invite pioneers and experts in the field of environmental protection to discuss with the audience the eco-development model and the efficiency of the tourism and MICE industry. It is now open for registration.
The Forum includes two sessions, namely “Green Economy – Sustainable Development of Tourism” and “New Pattern in MICE Industry under Eco-Cities Model”. As the global tourism market is growing and the MICE industry is emerging, the community, while enjoying the subsequent economic benefits, still holds a concern about environmental protection. By referring to cases at home and abroad, the Forum will discuss how the tourism and MICE industry and other related industries such as hospitality, catering, transportation, apply green technologies and green management that help enhance cost-efficiency and boost business opportunities.
