During the preliminary round of Asia Super Team: The Almighty Player, teams were put through an online game that not only tested their knowledge of Taiwan’s MICE environment and resources, but also their passion and team spirit. The online game also gave contestants the chance to virtually experience the abundance of MICE attractions and major festivals in Taiwan. The finals, an offline Monopoly-like contest, will see elite teams from seven countries compete in a five-day four-night trip in Taiwan that coincides with two major festivals – Yunlin International Puppet Theater Festival and Taiwan Cycling Festival – allowing players to experience Taiwan’s MICE offerings, local culture and ecological experiences across Taipei, Taichung, Changhwa and Yunlin in-person. Throughout the final trip in Taiwan, the contestants will be expected to demonstrate five of the core abilities expected of today’s business super talent - agility, responsiveness, courage, creativity and intelligence.
The final winner will be revealed at the 2016 Asia Super Team: The Almighty Player Award Ceremony on 15th October 2016
