AFECA Asia MICE Youth Challenge 2023, 22nd November 2023


We are pleased to inform you that the 8th edition of the AFECA Asia MICE Youth Challenge 2023 is confirmed, and we are very excited to announce that it will be held on Wednesday, 22nd November 2023. After the last 2 online editions of AFECA Asia MICE Youth Challenge, this year’s Youth Challenge would be back as an in-person event, to be held in Bangkok, Thailand.

AFECA Asia MICE Youth Challenge has come a long way since its inception in 2015. The 2022 Youth Challenge that took place virtually had received positive and proactive responses across Asia. A total of 19 teams from 10 AFECA member countries / regions were at the exciting competition. All the participants had expressed that the competition was a very fulfilling and rewarding experience. It was an excellent and unique opportunity for the participants to connect with many peers from other participating countries / areas to inspire ideas and share their passion of the industry.

As such, we are very excited to organise the 8th AFECA Asia MICE Youth Challenge which will be opened to all undergraduate students attending an accredited university or college within Asia. It is a platform for the future Asian MICE talents to outwit other participants by showcasing their genius novel event and convince the judges why their country/area is THE BEST MICE destination in Asia! This will be an opportunity for all to enhance their skills in the “new normal” ways to which the industry had adapted for business continuation and is expected to persist for many years.

We are expecting more schools/countries participating this year as we have already received overwhelming interest from various countries / regions, especially those who had participated in our previous events with fulfilling experience. Organise your teams today and take this golden opportunity to connect with the Asian MICE industry! Only registrations made through the respective AFECA Association Member country / area will be accepted.
