Organizers of international OEM event, Taichung Bike Week (TBW) have announced that next year's event will be held from September 22 to 25 in 2020. The timing change from this year's event, which was held in the middle of October, is due to the development of the annual bicycle speccing schedule.
According to organizers, many exhibitors felt that there were fewer representatives of American brands at this year's event, mainly because they had already been to Taiwan to visit factories and discuss specifications at the end of September.
Another change for next year's TBW is that after holding a three-day event this year, the 2020 event will last for four days. The extra day was deemed necessary by many exhibitors to successfully conclude all their business meeting.
Organizers hope that the changes to both the show dates and the length of the event will attract even international buyers to come to Taichung and give both visitors and exhibitors sufficient time to negotiate orders and take full advantage of the unique opportunities offered by TBW.
The 2019 Taichung Bike Week was held at the Splendor, Evergreen and Tempus hotels on October 16-18. A total of 407 exhibitors were attracted to participate in the exhibition, using 492 booths. Even though many international bicycle shows have had to face a trend of decline, the overall scale of this year's TBW was 15% higher than last year. The event has become a unique and professional platform for global OEM manufacturers and bicycle parts brands to showcase their latest products to product managers from the international bike industry.
