Taipei Cycle 2008: Big Hall, Big Show

 

TAIPEI, Taiwan – Maybe contrary to what everybody expects, this year’s Taipei Cycle Show is not taking place on the ground floor only. In fact The Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall (TWTC Nangang), as the new venue is officially named, consists of two big and main exhibition halls, one over the other.

The lower floor has a total of 23,167 square meters with a minimum ceiling height of nine meters. The column-free upper hall on the fourth floor covers 23,008 square meters with ceiling heights from 14 to 27 meters.

Double Floor Space

Despite Walter Yeh’s assertion that TAITRA is not focusing on increasing exhibitor numbers at the 2008 Cycle Show, the fact remains that the new Nangang venue will allow the Taipei Show to double its current floor space. A total exhibition space of somewhat over 46,000 square meters is available, enough for 2,465 standard-size (3×3 meters) booths.

Two large entrance halls of 2,000 square meters each are located both on the ground and fourth floors. The Nangang venue also has eleven meeting rooms and an outdoor exhibition area of over 1,000 square meters to the front of the main entrance. The 3rd floor features western-style and Chinese restaurants and a cafeteria.

"Improve Service for Visitors"

“The main focus for the 2008 Taipei International Cycle Show is to improve the service for all visitors. Our priority is not getting more exhibitors”, said Walter Yeh, Vice President of TAITRA. “We want the 2008 Show at the new venue to run smoothly in every way, but especially for buyers. For that special meeting rooms will be available for private meetings; factory tours will be set up using hi-speed trains and TAITRA will also provide incentives for special customers.”
