Running The First Global Fund Investing in a Future
of Exhibition and Events Industry
Investment Opportunity in the MICE Industry with an Experienced Leadership Team
The MICE (“Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions“) industry is a central part of business-related tourism and is forecasted to achieve a total market size of USD1.4tn by 2025. In 2018, an estimated 32,000 exhibitions were organised attracting over 303 million visitors. However, despite the size and growth of the industry there are no dedicated funds or ETFs.
COVID-19 has negatively impacted the MICE industry, including exhibition organisers, venues and travel operators since the start of the pandemic. MICE players with healthy balance sheets remain resilient and well positioned to capitalise on the post-pandemic recovery in travel and business events.
The MICE industry is expected to experience significant growth from the easing of covid restrictions and a pent up demand for exhibitions and events. The Mice Fund is positioned to profit from this resurgence in the MICE industry.
