TAITRA kicks off Computex 2011 with pre-show press conference and product preview
Call us presumptuous people, but there are times where impatience may turn out to be an asset instead of a liability, and it seems that major trade fairs and exhibitions such as Computex have a knack for proving us correct about such assumptions. As it turns out, TAITRA has held a Pre-Show International Press Conference at the Taipei International Convention Centre (TICC) today, where it not only announced various key events, but also gave the media a sneak peak into some of the new products that will be making their debut in this year's Computex. Seems like good things do not only come to those who have the patience to wait it out, after all.
If you are not already at Taipei getting ready to feast your eyes on what Computex has to offer this year, chances are you will be gluing yours eyes to the PC's monitor, and for good reason. After all, any information about potential leaks of new products that have been rumoured to be making their maiden appeareances at this year's event is definitely going to be big news, especially if it directly concerns end users and enthusiasts.
And as it turns out, one can always rely on TAITRA to work the ground by providing sneak previews of such devices to the media before the official launch. Which, as expected, is exactly what it has done today at the International Press Conference held at the Tawan International Convention Centre.
Speaking at the opening address was TAITRA's executive vice president, Walter Yeh, who spoke about the importance Computex plays in the B2B business scene.
"Computex has always served as a platform for the industry to discover the latest technologies. This year, we have 1800 companies participating, which is an 8% growth as compared to last year. With so many companies participating in order to extend their reach markets in Asia, Computex is best choice to promote one's products in Asia," he said.
Yeh also described how this year's Computex comes loaded with "a full set of services designed to help visitors make the most" of the exhibition in terms, especially where infrastructure is concerned. For example, an official Computex 2011 app has been released for download on both the Android Market and the iTunes App Store which allows users to view the latest show information through their smartphones. Which, as it turns out, also complements the exhibition's spoltlight on four of five key themes: tablets, e-readers, smartphones, cloud computing and lastly, 3D technonogy. Needless to say, expect to see products which fall into the aforementioned themes stealing most of the limelight when the exhibition officially opens tomorrow.
