These are the big ones which the entire industry has been waiting a year for! TAITRONICS is back, bigger, & better. And with it come four other professional shows that capture the spirit and trends of the moment.
Led by TAITRONICS, the 38th Taipei International Electronics Show that runs from Oct. 9-12 at TWTC NANGANG Exhibition Hall coincides with the 5th BROADBAND TAIWAN and the first-ever Taiwan Int'l Cloud Technology & Internet of Things Show (Cloud & IOT Taiwan 2012).
But there's more! With global trends increasingly moving toward eco-friendly electronics, this moment also joins strengths with TiGiS (the Taiwan International Green Industry Show) and BuildinG Taiwan (the Taiwan International Smart Green City Expo). This five-show extravaganza features 1,000 exhibitors using 2,000 booths who will link 50,000 buyers from global electronics.
TAITRONICS connects in 10 themed pavilions, 11 national pavilions and 14 display areas
Under the theme "Green Technology, Smart Living," the organizers of TAITRONICS 2012, Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and Taiwan Electrical & Electronics Manufacturers' Association (TEEMA) state that the show will display all products that meet emerging trends in electronic and electrical industry, including active and passive components, electronics components, meters and instruments, cells, batteries and power supplies, safety & security, LED lighting and applications, industrial process & manufacturing equipment, consumer electronics, and testing and certification.
Meanwhile displays at BROADBAND TAIWAN are spotlighting broadband products & applications, telecommunication equipment & components and mobile communications.
With the emerging cloud-computing industry comes Taiwan's first-ever Cloud & IOT Taiwan that is organized by Bureau of Foreign Trade, MOEA, implemented by TAITRA and TEEMA and supported by the Cloud Computing Association in Taiwan. The show will kick off along with TAITRONICS 2012 to unveil the latest cloud technologies and products as well as items related to internet of things and RFID.
Not only do these three electronics shows epitomize the entire supply and value chains of Taiwan's electronics industry, they also open the best procurement choices. It's here where the hottest products are present by domestic firms like Formosa Plastics Group, KSS, Shihlin Electric, GWinstek, Chroma, MINTRON, Chunghwa Telecom and SYSTEX.
Nearby will be transnational companies from Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Indonesia, Ireland, Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Thailand, Egypt, Hungary, Hong Kong, and China with 140 booths.
Theme pavilions underscore state- of-the-art excellence
The 10 theme pavilions at the show bring together the spirit of the age. They offer dedicated areas to inspection and certification standards, smart living, made in Taiwan (MIT) home appliances, Taiwanese software, "Taiwan Excellence" products, the latest ICT trends, energy-efficient technologies for refrigeration and air-conditioning, broadband communications, integrated broadband services, and Taiwanese cloud computing technologies.
19 Awarded Products Honored
Organized by TAITRA and TEEMA and implemented by ITRI, the Technology Innovation Awards for electronic components, electronic products, broadband communications and cloud & IOT honor manufacturers with their efforts in R&D. In addition, what makes these items of global interest matters is their focus on cutting emissions and saving energy, which have often been the focus of Taiwan R&D centers.
For months Taiwan experts from both the private and public sectors have worked to select 19 excellent products out of more than 100 entries from local companies like Zero One Technology, MEAN WELL, SYSTEX, Surgetek Technology, GWinstek, GLOBAL UNIQUE GREEN ENERGY TECHNOLOGY, APPA, EOC, AnaSystem, ADDA, ZEROPLUS, Uniway Technology, Chroma, ENOVA, Avertronics, and Chunghwa Telecom.
Among these 19 awarded excellent products, the gold medalists will be selected and be honored at an award ceremony on the opening day. During the show, these products offer buyers a sneak peek of their innovations when they are displayed at NANGANG Exhibition Hall (4th FL, Area M). These products will gain extra promotions with product brochures and CDs being distributed around the world.
Diverse events and trade shows mutually bolster participation
Top industry leaders and academics from home and abroad will lead off dozens of interactive forums during the shows. These forums, held in conjunction with TAITRONICS, address several topics. One of them is "The 2012 Taipei Summit" (Organized by BOFT and implemented by TAITRA on Oct. 11-12) that picks up the theme, "Mobile Next! Cloud Application Migration" That's where more than 400 international representatives from foreign and domestic industries, authorities, research institutes and academia are invited to discuss and share opinions over the "Developments and Trends in the Cloud Computing Industry," "Application Developments for the Education Cloud" and "Application Developments for the Transportation Cloud."
Besides the forums, get set to choose from a full slate of extra feature activities. These include the Opening Ceremony, a Welcome Party, and three types of procurement meetings, namely the "Sourcing Taiwan for Government Procurement" meetings, special "One-on-one Procurement Meetings", and "Global Online Sourcing Convention" where nearly 200 prominent buyers are flying in from over 20 countries such as the US, Brazil, Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Spain and so on to engage in talks with Taiwan exhibitors.
In 2012, TAITRONICS, BROADBAND Taiwan, and Cloud & IOT Taiwan unfold at NANGANG Exhibition Hall in conjunction with TiGiS (the Taiwan International Green Industry Show) and BuildinG Taiwan (the Taiwan International Smart Green City Expo). This 5-in-1 extravaganza showcases the latest green electronic and smart-living solutions in an array of exciting displays and events.
