TAIPEI, Taiwan – Taipei Cycle 2008 will be the first event ever to be held at the new Taiwan Trade Center, TWTC Nangang Exhibition Center, from March 13 to 16, 2008. Although the 2007 edition of the world’s biggest bike industry show was very successful, it was again limited due to the available space in the ‘old’ exhibition hall.
Due to that lots of domestic and international manufacturers had to be disappointed. With the Nangang Exhibition Hall doubling the current floor space, that problem is overcome and the organizers are upbeat about making the 21st Taipei Cycle Show the broadest and best show ever.
The Nangang Exhibition Hall, Asia’s newest trade-show venue will have the capacity to host 2,465 standard-size (3×3 meters) booths and will offer an exhibition space of 46,175 square meters. The construction started in March 2005 and the total investment is US$ 110 million.
