Taiwan Fastener Show postponed until October2020-02-20

The Taiwan International Fastener Show has been postponed until 14th – 16th October 2020, due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

The Taiwan International Fastener Show – organised by the Bureau of Foreign Trade, MOEA and implemented by Taiwan Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and Taiwan industrial Fastener Institute (TIFI) – was scheduled to be held from 21st – 23rd April at the Kaohsiung Exhibition Centre.

The sixth edition of the show was scheduled to have a total of 433 exhibitors and nearly 1,200 booths – an increase of 3.8% and 7.2% respectively from the previous edition in 2018. However, the outbreak of the coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has severely impacted international health security, international transportation and economic activities.

There were 2,193 overseas visitors at the fifth edition of the show in 2018 with 27.5% from China and 31.3% from the next four largest nations combined – Japan, India, the USA and Germany.

Considering the benefits, health, and safety, of all the exhibitors and buyers, TAITRA and TIFI reached a consensus that this year’s show should be postponed until 14th – 16th October 2020. This will enable the organiser to provide exhibitors and visitors with a better exhibition quality and exhibiting experience.

With its 63 overseas branch offices, TAITRA will also make efforts to invite international buyers to visit the trade show and ensure the safety of participants in the exhibition venue. More than 20,000 domestic and foreign buyers are expected to attend the show. The organiser looks forward to providing an even bigger, better and more successful Taiwan Fastener Show in October.
