Vincent Tseng, Director-general, Kaohsiung City Government Economic Development Bureau; Gerd Keim, President, Kaigo Co. Ltd. - Kaohsiung - January 24, 2015
With an annual growth of 5.11 % and a production value of USD 61.1 Billion in 2014, the metal manufacturing and metal processing industry in Taiwan is a market to keep an eye on. A market of this size evidently is in need of a comprehensive platform to showcase its potential.
Exhibition organizer KAIGO will launch such a platform with "International Metal Technology Taiwan" - Taiwan's first exhibition and conference dedicated to the metal industry.
After a meeting on January 24, 2015 between Gerd Keim, President of KAIGO and Vincent Tseng, Director-general of the Kaohsiung City Government Economic Development Bureau, the Kaohsiung City Government confirmed its official support towards the exhibition.
With the Kaohsiung City Government as advisor, "International Metal Technology Taiwan" will be held from December 2- 4, 2015 in Taiwan's heavy industry cluster region in Kaohsiung. Taiwan's first multifunctional waterfront venue and green building "Kaohsiung Exhibition Center" has been chosen as the venue for its convenient location and its state-of-the-art facilities.
"International Metal Technology Taiwan" focuses on connecting the entire supply chain of the industry. The exhibition will act as a trade platform that supports international visitors in finding new business partners and better understanding the Asian market. International industry conferences are held alongside the exhibition to bring together global professionals that share their insights on market trends and industry developments.
Taiwanese companies are renowned for their flexibility and their high-quality production. The extensive yet focused exhibition profile allows visitors to see the industries' capabilities in its entirety. Dividing the profile into product categories such as metallurgy, foundry technology, metal finishing, coating technology, heat treatment or raw materials facilitates the procurement process.
Apart from unique sourcing possibilities, international visitors have the opportunity to get first-hand impressions of their potential business partners' factories.
KAIGO was founded in 1978 and is the pioneer in Taiwan's exhibition industry. With events like the Taiwan Hardware Show - an annual exhibition that has run successfully for 15 years - KAIGO supports Taiwan's export-orientated industries to enter the international markets. "International Metal Technology Taiwan" aims to become Asia's go-to-exhibition for local and international industry players of the metal industry.
