Bike Trend in Asia Pushes Taipei Cycle Show to New Records
TAICHUNG, Taiwan – The 2013 Taipei International Cycle Show will again break all records next March. This has been announced at today’s press conference in Taichung, Taiwan. There’s no sign at all of an economic crisis for the biggest trade show in Asia as the demand for sports bikes continues to grow in lots of Asian countries.
Last year’s 25th edition of the International Taipei Cycle Show already marked a milestone in the history of this tradeshow; the 26th edition which is to take place from March 20 to 23, 2013, is to surpass that in a big way. The number of booth applications is beyond all expectations and way over last year’s level in November.
This points to the fact that the Taipei Cycle Show benefits clearly from the growth in popularity of mountainbikes, roadracers and other bike categories in several Asian markets. To accommodate the growing demand for such bikes, the importance of Taipei Cycle as a distributor show is also spurred.
Over 1,100 exhibitors
Show organizer TAITRA – the external trade development council of the country – expects for the 2013 Taipei Cycle show a total number of exhibitors that will be well above the 1,100 mark. Also more business visitors and buyers are expected; over 8,000. Last year about 6,500 foreign visitors were in the Nangang Exhibition Center where also the 2013 show is to take place.
Four shows in one
All the visitors will not only get to see the latest in bikes and in bike products. The 2013 Taipei Cycle Show is in fact four shows in one. Simultaneously and partly in the same exhibition center three other shows are taking place; the TAISPO (tradeshow for sporting goods), the SPOMODE (tradeshow for sportsfashion) and the DIWAS (trade show for diving, swimming and watersports products).
It all takes place at the Nangang Exhibition Hall and the TWTC Exhibition Hall 1 in Taipei, Taiwan from March 20 to 23, 2013.
