Amidst all supply chain problems which still hamper the industry, Taiwan has proven to be a critical base for global high-end bicycle production. The industry is now addressing the disruptive supply chain issues to enhance green production while technology also facilitates digital transformation and new business models.
Spotlight on pressing themes
The 2023 Taipei Cycle will focus on five themes: Resilient Supply Chain, Digital Connections, Vibrant Innovations, Dynamic Lifestyles, and Sustainable Moves. All these latest trends will be put in the spotlight at Taipei Cycle next year.
Because ‘sustainable moves’ will be one of the main themes, there will be a series of activities and events that include the Green Force Workshop, Taipei Cycle Green Initiatives, and Ride Together. In addition, Taipei Cycle d&i awards will add a new Green Prize this year to encourage sustainability.
