Computex draws more than 1,700 exhibitors

News this week: The world’s second largest information and communications technology show, Computex Taipei, opened this year to an impressive 1,724 exhibitors occupying 5,042 booths. The show’s organiser, Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), is expecting to draw 10% more international visitors this year to reach a total show attendance of over 140,000.

The five-day mega show will run from 4th to 8th June this year across four major Taipei exhibition halls: Taipei World Trade Center NANGANG, Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition Hall 1 and 3, and the Taipei International Convention Center.

This year, Computex is segmented into the three major show themes of Cloud Technology and Services, Smart Mobility, and Touch Enabled Applications. TAITRA will reportedly host a scheduled 1,800 one-on-one procurement meetings at the show – an increase from the 1,000 held last year.
