TAIPEI, Taiwan – More than 1,100 exhibitors are lined-up for the 29th edition of the 2016 Taipei International Cycle Show which will open its doors on next week on March 2nd. The revival of the European market as a main export destination for Taiwan’s bicycle industry will have a major impact on the show dynamics.
