Organizers of Taipei Cycle have postponed the trade show originally scheduled for March 4-7 to May 14-16 because of the coronavirus outbreak in China.
The Taiwan External Trade Development Council, the organizer, also is rescheduling the Taipei International Sporting Goods Show, which is held concurrently.
“In these uncertain times, TAITRA stands together with Taiwanese industry and government to stabilize global confidence in Taiwan as the benchmark for sourcing quality and innovation. TAITRA will continue to organize several economic and trade development activities,” said Walter Yeh, the organization’s president and CEO.
TAITRA said the May event will be a “special edition” of the shows. The combined shows will be called TAIPEI CYCLE+ and TaiSPO+ and will be held in Taipei’s Nangan Exhibition Hall 2. Last year’s Taipei Cycle used two floors of Hall 2 as well as one floor in Hall 1.
“These special editions of these globally important shows will be held to support the cycling and sporting goods industries. We expect to have companies with bicycles, components, electric bicycles and motor systems, fitness equipment, sportswear, smart sports, sporting services, ball sports, watersports, outdoor supplies and more,” TAITRA said.
The event will also include an online exhibition concept, one-to-one procurement meetings, video conferences, and live-stream broadcasting.
