As the only hardware and hand tools trade show taking place this year globally, the three-day Taiwan Hardware Show (THS) will soon kick off on 13th October at the Taichung International Exhibition Center. Positive industry outlook for the post COVID-19 era has led to over 370 companies signing up as exhibitors, in a bid to gear up for a long-awaited economic recovery and plan the next strategic move amid changes in the global supply chain network.

With Taiwan’s COVID-19 success story, and the government’s relief programs and resources to help expand business opportunities, the organizer Kaigo has also done its share by playing a pioneering role to help businesses thrive in the midst of difficult times. According to Kaigo, Taiwanese businesses exhibit strong determination and ambition to overcome challenges and seize advantage in a downturn.

Although some international buyers could not attend the trade show due to the pandemic, many Taiwanese businesses overseas took the initiative to come back to Taiwan, in search of new partnership and collaborations, which has helped THS attract much favorable attention. With help from their Taiwan-based partners, a number of international businesses have stepped up efforts in procurement evaluation and study, a key factor encouraging businesses in Taiwan to forge ahead amid the coronavirus pandemic.
