Vietnam

Fascinating cities packed with history and heritage, idyllic beaches, dramatic land and seascapes, world-class cuisine, abundant adventure pursuits and a rich diversity of flora and fauna – Vietnam has exceptional qualities for MICE events. The country’s rich history offers a wealth of experiences including eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites, ranging from 4th century temples to a 15th century trading port. This heritage can be utilised as a backdrop to an event, or for incentive activities. These qualities have driven the country’s growth as a major tourism destination and leisure infrastructure has been adapted to improve the capacity to deliver large-scale MICE events. While the major conurbations of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City have been the obvious corporate destinations, Da Nang, Hoi An and Nha Trang have advanced their ability to stage world class events through the development of exhibition facilities, improved hotel stock and improved transport links.

Vietnam’s charming blend of bustling cities and beautiful stunning beaches and landscapes, which has made it to travel magazine covers around the world, has elevated the country’s reputation as a diverse destination for thrill-seeking visitors. Blessed with good weather throughout the year and an ever-expanding improved infrastructure, this 2000+ kilometre-long country has made travel in the region even more pleasant and enjoyable.

Home to must-visit UNESCO World Heritage sites and a wide range of cruise options along the Mekong Delta that unravel rural life on the river, Vietnam is also a destination for adventure seekers. Add in a delectable selection of culinary options within easy reach everywhere in-country and the wide choice of comfortable hotels – from locally managed properties to internationally-acclaimed chains – Vietnam is a destination not only for tourists but an attractive one for events. Our Vietnam DMC can help create the perfect meeting and incentive. Despite the developments and modernity, Vietnam remains a country that thrives on maintaining its authenticity in its architecture, temples and other structures.
