Taipei Cycle Show has been attending seminars in Canada and Poland to increase and share knowledge around both the show and the Taiwanese bicycle industry generally.
In September, Taipei Cycle headed to Warsaw to host the Targi Kielce Bike-Expo, running a presentation covering cycling culture and bike industry development to connect with key businesses in an increasingly important market.
Around 50 companies attended the event which saw speakers discuss the Taiwanese bike industry and Taipei Cycle 2020, as well as an overview of Polish bike industry connections to Taiwan.
Taipei Cycle organiser TAITRA also unveiled plans for the 2020 show in Vancouver, following a 22% increase in buyers at the show earlier this year. On the agenda was industry advice, access to business representatives and guest speakers.
Local media and bicycle companies shared their experiences of Taipei Cycle to date to the 60 companies and specialists in attendance.
Taipei Cycle’s next tour is set to take place at Cyclemode in Tokyo, Japan, across the 2-4 November. The show itself falls on 4-7 March at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Centre in Taiwan.
The 2020 show is expecting to welcome more than 1,200 companies across 4,000 booths, and will feature a brand new ‘fashion show’, international forum, D&I awards and cycling salon.
In August, significant Latin American bicycle festival Shimano Fest featured presentations and presence from the organisers as the event looked to connect to the international cycle market. The first of the seminars took place in Seoul, Korea, on 20th June, for representatives from Japanese and Korean cycling and sporting goods industries.
Last year’s event attracted 1,409 exhibitors and used 4,720 booths and welcomed a total of 17,023 visitors through the doors.
