E-Bikes & Bike Trend in Asia Pushes Taipei Show
TAIPEI, Taiwan – The 2013 Taipei International Cycle Show that starts tomorrow again breaks all records. There’s no sign at all of an economic crisis for the biggest trade show in Asia.
Two prevailing trends are pushing the demand for booths at Taipei Cycle: e-bikes as well as the growing popularity of sports bikes in lots of Asian countries. It brings about 6% more exhibitors to the 26th Taipei International Cycle Show taking place from March 20 to 23, 2013.
Number of exhibitors well above 1,100 mark
Last year’s 25th edition marked a milestone in the history of the tradeshow. The 26th edition of the International Taipei Cycle Show, surpasses that in a big way. Show organizer TAITRA – the external trade development council of the country – claims that the 2013 Taipei Cycle show will host a total number of exhibitors 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 at the Nangang Exhibition Center.
Taipei Cycle Show clearly benefits from the growing e-bike trend as well as the popularity of mountain bikes, road racers 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 spotlighted.
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;
- TAISPO (tradeshow for sporting goods)
- SPOMODE (tradeshow for sports fashion)
- 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 tomorrow, Wednesday to Saturday; March 20 to 23, 2013.
