Cquote1.svg We [the TAITRA and the automobile industry] ever met a damn difficult problem on show space of this show, because in the past years, there were only three exhibition halls at TWTC (Hall 1, 2, 3), even though we [the TAITRA] do several attempts on scale expansions, still, there’s no enough space for the automobile industry. Finally, After confirmation of its construction of TWTC Nangang, we decided to enroll this show into TWTC Nangang. With 937 companies participating including foreign participants from United Kingdom, Italy, France, Japan, United States, India, Malaysia, Korea, and China, this show will bring on internationalization as the Taipei Cycle and TaiSPO ever concurrently showcased in March.

—Yung-chuan Chao, President of Taiwan External Trade Development Council

Cquote1.svg This industry is an export-oriented market in Taiwan. According to some statistics, its production value reached NT$153.9 billion dollars, and its export value reached USD$471 million dollars, those facts showcased several growths on its [automobile] industry. With several OBMs get certified on innovative products, the brand of “Made in Taiwan” was progressively steady. This echoed our show slogan – “Without Taiwan, You Don’t Get Parts!” I hope the automobile industry in Taiwan can play a great role in the world with participants’ hard works. Cquote2.svg

—Fadah Hsieh, Vice Minister of Economic Affairs of the Republic of China.

Cquote1.svg This year of Motorcycle Taiwan has some differences especially on the 5th-cycle standard pavilion because the environment issue is progressively focused by the automobile industry in the world. We [the TAITRA] thanked several supports by world-class companies YAMAHA to pay more attentions on this pavilion. I think this issue should be more discussed by professionals from academic units, industry, and governments not only in Taiwan. Cquote2.svg

—Donald W. Lu, Vice President of TAITRA.

The three main shows in different venues, highlighting key issues like the environment, energy-efficiency, and industry transformations. TAITRA held “AutoTronics Forum” and “Taiwan Automotive International Forum & Exhibition” in hopes of forecasting the future of the electronic and automobile industries. Yamaha Corporation put on the “‘Fi’ 5th-Stage Emission Standard Pavilion” to showcase the research achievement and solutions for the future standard of fifth-cycle.

Larger and bigger than the Taipei World Trade Center (TWTC), the Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall (TWTC Nangang) was finally completed on December 24.

According to the hall owner, Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), TWTC Nangang owned 2650 booths twice larger than current TWTC (1300 booths), several companies from different industries wanted to exhibit in TWTC Nangang by participating in some international shows, but the competition was apparently intensive because of limitations on booths and scales.

Steve Ruey-long Chen ever visited the 2007 Taipei IT Month to support the exhibition industry.

Recently in a press conference, Minister of Economic Affairs of the Republic of China Steve Ruey-long Chen said to media: “After the TWTC Nangang was finished its construction, it will bring on opportunities for companies from different industries including exhibition industry.”

TAITRA also announced that some international shows will be moved to Nangang including the Taipei Cycle, Taipei PLAS, TAITRONICS and Food Taipei. COMPUTEX Taipei will exhibit in not only TWTC Nangang but also TWTC Hall 1 & 3, Taipei Show (formerly known as TWTC Hall 2), and the Taipei International Convention Center to challenge the largest scale in June, 2008.

Companies wanted to exhibit in the TWTC Nangang, but due to the construction of Neihu Line of Taipei Metro, it is still in process, and shows with similar industries will be exhibited in the same schedule respectively at TWTC Hall and TWTC Nangang, the traffic will increase on those two exhibition centers after TWTC Nangang will be launched on March, 2008. TAITRA currently considered moving important trade shows to Nangang rather than domestic market shows.
