Hardware industry leaders convene to in Taiwan

Bridging the hardware export and import markets, the exhibition calls upon the participation of DIY suppliers from various European countries under the European DIY Retail Association-Global Home Improvement Network. Providing opportunities for visitors to secure exclusive distributorship rights to import into their domestic markets, these companies will showcase popular products in the European markets. As Europe is one of the key export markets for Taiwanese companies and is growing in demand numbers, with potential to be a bigger market than North America, this will pave more business opportunities for Taiwanese companies and western businesses.

With the presence of European and American trade organisation leaders including the Chairman of the International Federation of Hardware & Housewares Association (IHA) and other top officials from the European DIY Retail Association-Global Home Improvement Network, THS 2018 will be the meeting point for industry professionals to network and share insights on the different hardware market development. Hosting an international league of industry players, Taiwan will show its warm business hospitality and openness in embracing a mutually beneficial trade cooperation with international hardware players.

Spotlight on the wide range of competitively-priced products will draw 35,000 international buyers and DIY retailers of hardware goods to the exhibition in Taichung. As Taiwan's manufacturing centre, this strategic venue allows visitors to also make a trip to their business partners' factories in the city. In addition, with the direct business matching services conducted with support from the local trade office, visitors will go through a speedier process in meeting the right suppliers. Qualified international buyers sourcing at THS can also optimize the subsidy of TWD 15,000 per person for their accommodation and airport pick-up use. Visitors can also enjoy participating a the THS Industrial Forum to understand Taiwan's hardware industry influence in foreign markets such as Europe, USA, Indonesia, Vietnam and other countries.
