Taipei Int’l Cycle Show
TAITRA will organize TAIPEI CYCLE 2014 concurrently with three other trade shows at TWTC Hall 1 & Hall 3--TaiSPO (Taiwan Int’l Sporting Goods Show), SPOMODE (Taipei Int’l Sports Textile & Accessory Expo) and DiWaS (Taiwan Int’l Diving and Water Sports Show). The 4-in-1 trade show offers the sporting goods industry the most comprehensive one-stop sourcing event in Asia, and is projected to attract more than 10,000 int’l visitors.
TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards have won praise for offering a unique competition that inspires both makers and the market. In 2013, there were 44 winners selected from 184 entries by companies and designers from around the world; four of whom received the coveted TAIPEI CYCLE Gold Award. These d&i award-winning products have been out front in setting trends in design and innovation for the bicycle industry by applying new materials and technologies.
The 2017 opening of NANGANG Exhibition Hall 2 is expected to reduce the huge pressure for show space. But until then TAIPEI CYCLE will continue to be held in March.
The next Taipei Cycle Show will take place from 5 to 8 March 2014.
