Computex Primary COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2011 Key Highlights
 
Taipei, Taiwan March 30, 2011 - Today’s pre-show press conference not only marks the 31st anniversary of COMPUTEX TAIPEI, it also briefs the press on the latest developments at the show and cues journalists on one of the greatest ICT events of our age.
 
As the clock clicks down to COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2011 (May 31 to June 4), vendors and exhibitors are adding the final touches on their creations to grab your attention.
 
Meanwhile TAITRA, the show organizer, is readying its entire fleet of show halls from NANGANG through to the four Xinyi District venues.  
 
Links Tightened with Global ICT Trade Shows
As the 2nd largest ICT tradeshow in the world, COMPUTEX TAIPEI has always kept close relations with other global ICT trade shows. Following the signing of a MOU with IFA (Berlin) two years ago that spurred trade and investment in 2009, COMPUTEX TAIPEI has now signed another MOU of cooperation with CeBIT earlier this month in Hanover.  
 
This new win-win link between COMPUTEX TAIPEI and CeBIT helps to progress the ICT industry and boost mutual business. The latest MOU serves as a significant milestone for the Taiwan exhibition industry and the world’s two best ICT events by promoting international trade, exchange and friendship between these two giants.
 
New Trends lead the Future
Since its founding over 30 years ago, COMPUTEX TAIPEI has become one of the largest ICT shows in the world. It’s now also the top procurement platform for both foreign and local buyers. Most significantly, COMPUTEX TAIPEI has just kept growing and glowing year after year.
 
COMPUTEX TAIPEI is expected to further expand upon the latest ICT trends displayed at CES and CeBIT by offering a real marketing platform for such products as Tablet PCs, e-books, Smart Phones, 3D Tech and Cloud Computing.
 
Meanwhile ICT giants such as Intel and Microsoft are ready to announce their leading-edge technologies with manufacturers like Acer, ASUSTeK, GIGABYTE, MSI and ViewSonic who are also getting set to launch their latest breakthroughs.

  • Executive Speech & COMPUTEX TAIPEI FORUM – AMD, Broadcom, Intel, Microsoft and many other leading international companies are presenting their cutting edge knowledge – including the latest technology, total solutions, branding & marketing and strategy in executive speeches on June 2. Hundreds of sessions at the COMPUTEX TAIPEI FORUM cover the hottest news on Tablet PCs, Smart Phones, Cloud Computing and IOT(Internet Of Things).          
  • Free One-on-One Procurement Meetings – More than 2,000 free global one-on-one procurement meetings provide VIP buyers and exhibitors more business opportunities. That’s where thousands of buyers face off with suppliers at private meetings to lay down their most demanding specs and orders.         
  • Breaking Records of 30 Years– This event promises to chalk up a full state of records. Its 1,800+ exhibitors will use 5,200+ booths to showcase their hottest products to 36,000+ international buyers breaking records in scale, attendance and number of buyers.And with this, COMPUTEX TAIPEI will link up the global best in partners, prices, concepts and components to generate an estimated US$23bn in business.          
  • Full Menu of Buyer Services – NEW & FREE value-stored Taipei EasyCards let buyers use the metro to zip between the shows via MRT or buses. This is the first time that COMPUTEX TAIPEI combines a buyer pass and EasyCard to provide quick and easy travel and show entry.
  • In addition, a new smart exhibition guiding device, “ORBI”, will be a great pal for buyers. We’re providing foreign buyers with an ORBI so they can navigate the show and the city. The ORBI helps buyers to cross index products and vendors, and after the show, to find out where to eat, what to see and how to get there. Another advantage of ORBI is that it will brief the buyers on their location, track down target exhibitors at the show, and locate shuttle buses and the MRT.
