2020 Taiwan Hardware Show- the Only Hardware Event Worldwide
Due to the outstanding pandemic mitigation in Taiwan, Taiwan Hardware Show was the only hardware event held, worldwide in 2020. It received wide attention from the global hardware industry and allowed Taiwan’s hardware and hand tool manufacturers to stay ahead of the competition, as the best supply chain partners for global brands and distributors. 2020 Taiwan Hardware Show was held alongside International Metal Technology Taiwan (iMT Taiwan); together, they attracted over 400 exhibitors and 23,000 participants. In the exhibitions, foreign buyers negotiated with Taiwanese vendors through brand agents, traders, and direct procurement representatives. In addition, the Online Matchmaking successfully matched more than 100 companies with their business partners to seize international business opportunities, making the exhibitions the most successful trade show in 2020. This showed that with crisis comes opportunities. To create business opportunities in adversity, businesses should continue to take part in exhibitions, whether it is virtually or physically.
