One of the largest sporting goods shows in Taiwan will return for its 45th edition and is expected to continue its influential presence in the Asian sports industry with over 300 exhibiting manufacturers and 1,800 exhibition stands at the show.
TaiSPO will be organized for the 45th time from March 8-10, 2018. The show will feature the latest outdoor goods from leading national and international manufacturers.
For first time since 2011, TaiSPO will be held separately from Taipei Cycle Show. TAITRA, the organizer of the two events, decided to move the Taiwan Cycle Show dates to meet with industry expectations after a comprehensive industry survey.
TAITRA, TaiSPO’s event organizer, adds that the sports show will continue to display fitness, camping, outdoor and water sports equipment, as well as sportswear. Visitors will have the opportunity to see 300 exhibiting manufacturers and 1,800 exhibition stands and seize the “best opportunities to meet with suppliers in Taiwan and the Asia region to source new partners in the sporting industry”.
More than 23,000 local and international visitors attended TaiSPO 2017, according to official reports from the show’s organizers. The international sports goods show expects to attract high volumes of international interest following the success of past shows.
There will be various exclusive items on display at the show, ranging from fitness equipment, camping supplies and sports gear.
In addition to the many outdoor exhibitors, there will be several business happenings during the exhibition. This includes a fitness industry and management forum, marathon and sports marketing forum, and one-on-one procurement meetings.
Show organizers have specially invited international experts from the sporting industry to speak during the show and share their insights about the latest trends in the marathon and fitness business.
Nevertheless, one of the most anticipated novelties at the show is the IoT/Wearbles Zone, which will be displaying wearable training devices, and the Training Programs Zone for personal training classes.
TaiSPO 2018 will be open on March 8 for trade visitors only, at the usual venue, the Taipei World Trade Center Hall 1 and 3, while March 9-10 welcomes both trade visitors and public visitors. Register online to visit TaiSPO 2018.
