Members in the News – GIS Group

Read here how GIS Group and its CEO, Jason Yeh, an active member of AmCham Taiwan and co-chair of the Tourism and Travel Committee made waves, and a cultural statement, while unveiling a first-of-its kind international exhibition center in Tainan on April 21.

In the months and years to come, you will be hearing more about this significant economic development initiated by the Bureau of Foreign Trade and Tainan City Government. The center will be operated by GIS.

In this first in a series known as Members in the News, AmCham Taiwan provides supplemental color on a few of our many dynamic members who are regularly hitting the headlines with significant commercial news from and with Taiwan. And please scroll down for some background on our first Member in the News, GIS.

THE FIRM: ICC Tainan joins convention and meeting venues operated by GIS across Taiwan. They offer a range of spaces including the hip Nangang Bottle Cap Factory (POPOP Taipei). GIS Group provides a total meeting solution, from face-to-face, virtual, and hybrid meeting management to congress organization, AV equipment rental, and interpreting.

THE MEMBER: An AmCham Taiwan member since December 2015, GIS has been a driver of the Travel & Tourism Committee and is currently advocating visa normalization and responsible reopening of Taiwan for international business. Look for them next in the Transportation & Logistics and Healthcare Committees.

THE PHILOSOPHY: More than a MICE practitioner, GIS is passionate about destination marketing and authentically represents cultures where it operates, while promoting sustainability. GIS’ values jumped out in the stirring performances arranged for 600 guests at the ICC Tainan opening. First, elementary students sang in the once-lost language of the Siraya people – the ones who gave Taiwan its name. Then, the region’s seafaring and international connections – from fishing to Dutch settlement – were evoked by the Billy Chang dancers.
