More than 5 000 from abroad attended this year's Taiwan Hardware Show.

The Taiwan Hardware Show has increased its number of overall visitors as well as the buyers from abroad. Attending the 18th edition of the trade fair from 17 - 19 October in Taichung were 5 184 overseas buyers from more than 85 countries, 2 per cent more than in the previous year. Major buyers from the United States, Australia, Japan, South Korea and other regular visiting countries contributed to the visitor growth this year. Increase in the number of visitors from Pakistan, Germany, Russia and other countries also added further internationality on the show floor, according to an announcement by the event organiser Kaigo. The overall number of visitors has also increased by 2 per cent to 31 500. The number of exhibitors has increased by 3 per cent to 425. The exhibition area amounted to 16 524 m².

The supporting programme included appearances, for example, from Jean- François Dubost, chairman of the International Federation of Hardware & Housewares Associations (IHA). The trade fair was also accompanied by the Hardware Industry Forum with specialist presentations on international market trends.

Last year the Taiwan Hardware Show relocated within the city of Taichung, namely to the International Exhibition Hall. "Given that Taichung has risen as the second largest export area of the global hardware industry in recent years, we have chosen to continue holding the exhibition here," Gerd Keim, President of Kaigo, affirmed this decision.
