Taiwanese show in “hybrid” digital format

With the ongoing Covid virus waves in some countries, the 17th Taipei International Plastics & Rubber Industry Show (Taipeiplas), co-hosted by Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry (TAMI), will be held from 28 September-2 October 2021 at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Centre, Hall 1, in a new “hybrid” exhibition format.

The 400 registered exhibitors will be granted free online exhibition booths, which upgraded packages will be available for order, targeting to help exhibitors enhance their online marketing plans. The application kit will be ready in early May and seminars for the online exhibition will be held in Taiwan mid-May. The organisers aim at teaming up with all exhibitors to interact with buyers without any time and geographical constraints.

In 2020, Taiwan plastics machinery industry reached US$899.57 million in exports, ranking among the top six exporting countries in the world. During the last edition in 2018, Taipeiplas had 497 exhibitors over 2,586 booths and attracted nearly 20,000 domestic and foreign buyers, making it the world's top six, one of the top three plastics and rubber industry exhibitions in Asia, and the most important platform for Taiwanese suppliers to expand business opportunities.

The themes for this year’s show are "Shaping New PLASbility" as the main axis and "Smart Manufacturing" and "Sustainability Cycle”. This hybrid event will present a complete supply chain of Taiwan’s plastics and rubber industry. Following the market trend to go virtual, the organisers have also initiated a series of online activities as a warm up for this trade show, including: podcast, issues on market trends and their relationships with people’s lives addressed, PLASpotlight video series, and market outlook webinars.

This year’s show will be also held in conjunction with Taipei International Shoe Making Technology Show (ShoeTech Taipei) so as to maximise industry strength and exposure for both events.

The organisers expect “tens of thousands of buyers from home and abroad”, coupled with more than 45,000 visits at the online exhibition.
