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.
