Feb 08, 2021 | By 經濟日報

In response to the surging pandemic at home and abroad, the show organizers have decided to postpone the physical exhibition, but TIMTOS 2021 online exhibition (TIMTOS 2021 Online) will continue as scheduled to serve exhibitors and buyers worldwide. The announcement comes after the Taiwan Center for Diseases Control stressed that if it is impossible to maintain social distancing among attendees, it is strongly recommended that event organizers should cancel or postpone large gatherings. The physical show is therefore postponed for protecting the health of exhibitors and visitors in compliance with government guidance.

Nearly 1,000 exhibitors will still participate in the TIMTOS 2021 Online. Top machine tool manufacturers will present their latest products. The organizers have held seminars, workshops and recorded tutorials to actively promote this new type of exhibition since last year. Exhibitors can use 3D, VR and videos to display the latest products, and connect with global buyers through online procurement conferences, online real-time matching, video conferences, etc. Industry forums and Factory tour will be held to extend beyond time and space restrictions and expand exhibition benefits!

As scheduled, TIMTOS 2021 Online (online.timtos.com.tw) will be launched from March 15th to March 20th with display and browse functions remained effective from March 21st to April 15th. The official website of TIMTOS will continue the online service throughout the year. The new schedule for TIMTOS physical exhibition will be released soon. Please follow the official website announcement.
