Dedicated Pavilions
The four dedicated pavilions at  the show include: Broadband Services Pavilion, Internet-of- Things--Innovations and Experience Pavilion, MIT (Made-in-Taiwan) Household Electrical Appliance Pavilion 2014, and Taiwan Cloud & Big Data Pavilion.

The Broadband Services Pavilion brings together innovative technologies and applications based around wired and wireless broadband Internet access in three themed exhibits–"High-Speed Internet Standards", "e-Home Transmedia Integration Solutions" and "Smart Living and Broadband Internet Application Services."

The "High-Speed Internet Standards" booth will exhibit "G.fast", the newest in broadband technology, which utilizes micro-DSLAM nodes on existing telephones, underground cables, and telephone wires of high-rise buildings to provide 8 to 16 subscribers with fiber-grade high-speed broadband service. It is the emerging star for the next-generation broadband technology. "e-Home Transmedia Integrated Solutions" display a seamless networking environment across multi-household platforms that enable delivery of a wide range of home applications. G.hn is a new technology certified by ITU-T that integrates the existing transmissions interfaces found in homes—power lines, co-axial cables and telephone lines— through Wi-Fi Home Gateway and IP-Cam terminal products to create a hi-speed home networking, security surveillance and multimedia entertainment system. "Smart Living and Broadband Internet Application Services"  present a network environment using mobile web technology framework that combines G.fast and G.hn technologies together with 4G LTE, as well as all kinds of smart terminal applications and services that can be developed in this environment, such as security surveillance and healthcare for the smart family.

At the Internet-of-Things--Innovations and Experience Pavilion, visitors will witness the latest technology in smart architecture, smart home, smart healthcare, smart shopping, and smart transportation! Just to name a few: The world's first singing lightbulb lets you listen to music in shower, security system that allows remote opening of doors and turning on lights, an infrared and non-intrusive instrument that detects blood sugar levels, a system that rectifies exercise postures, and an assistant driver system equipped with a 360° camera. Also the “Technology Innovation Awards” will showcases the highlights of Taiwan's most innovative products!

The MIT Household Electrical Appliance Pavilion features Taiwan's best electrical appliance collections, which have passed place-of-origin and quality inspections to obtain the MIT Smile Logo, with wide-ranging products to represent Taiwanese excellence in user-safety and reliability.

Circular Economy of Electronics Forum
The show organizers have invited many internationally reputed forum speakers to attend a series of seminars and discussions, including Andreas Bohnhoff, European Recycling Platform (ERP) Business Development Manager, to share knowledge in applying for Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) approval; Chang Juu-en, professor at Taiwan's National Cheng Kung University and director of Taiwan's Sustainable Environment Research Center, talk about the current status and future development of electronics waste disposal; and Tzershin Wu, marketing manager of Sabic Innovative Plastic, a top-100 among Forbes Global 2000 companies, to introduce green-electronics design and supply-chain management.

2014 Technology Innovation Awards
The jury of the 3rd Technology Innovation Awards has selected 22 products as winners, including three gold-award winners, with all the winners to be displayed at the "Technology Innovation Awards Special Zone" on the first floor of the Nangan Exhibition Hall.
