The term length for elected branch representatives is three years (previously two years), and representatives may be re-elected to serve one consecutive term. The elections are conducted using the online voting system of the National Election Commission. The 299 SMA member companies will be participating in the elections.
SMA is divided into the following 5 branches: MICE tourism attraction facilities (convention centers, hotels), operation (PCO, travel agencies), support (transportation, services, entertainment, shopping/tourism), unique venues, and MICE event organizers.
As international meetings and corporate meetings/incentives are the main MICE event support items, the MICE tourism operation branch will be divided into PCOs and travel agencies for this election. The election results are scheduled to be announced on December 13th.
