Taipeiplas to kick off digital week

The two shows originally scheduled to be held in September 2020, Taipei International Plastics & Rubber Industry Show (Taipeiplas) and Taipei International Shoe Making Technology Show (ShoeTech Taipei), have been postponed to 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In response, the organisers, Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry (TAMI), will launch on 21 September 2020 the one-week Taipeiplas Digital Week. With these series of online and offline activities, the organisers say they aim to break social distancing restrictions and improve the visibility of the exhibitions.

The digital week consists of the Online CEO Panel, Online Talks, PLASpotlight, and TTS Match and will cover market trends, innovative technology and products.

The first programme to appear on the morning of 21 September will be the live broadcast of the Online CEO Panel, which will be hosted by Walter M. S. Yeh, President/CEO of TAITRA. Professionals invited to speak on this webinar will be experts from representative manufacturers in the plastics and rubber industry. This will be followed by Online Talks, an interview programme with exhibitors taking part in either Taipeiplas or ShoeTech Taipei.

Starting from 22 September, selected videos featuring new products of companies will be broadcast at 3 pm Taiwan time at the PLASpotlight for six consecutive days. To watch the programmes, please stay tuned with TTS D’CHANNEL: https://www.youtube.com/taiwantradeshows.

In order to ensure that exhibitors' business opportunities continue to line up and expand their sales in the international market, the finale of Digital Week on 29 September will be the TTS Match for Taipeiplas and ShoeTech, in which TAITRA has integrated digital resources at home and abroad and mobilised its overseas branches to invite buyers from 14 countries to join the meetings. The products and services that buyers are interested in purchasing include plastic and rubber machinery, injection moulding machinery, moulds & dies, raw materials, semi-finished & finished products, and so on.

Should the pandemic still linger on, TAITRA says it will launch various integrated online services to create a new normal for exhibitions. For example, the Machinery Exhibitions Online, Taiwan (www.machineryshow.tw) is established in such a way that buyers can directly link to the product list on the official website, search and browse products immediately. Meanwhile, this online trade show also improves the visibility of exhibitors' products. For more information on Taipeiplas and ShoeTech Taipei visit: taipeiplas.com.tw and shoetech.com.tw
