How to reserve appointments
Taichung Bike Week (TBW) has been organized by bike industry volunteers whose objective is to make everyone's efforts more effective and efficient and to improve our industry as a whole. TBW is an OEM event, and as such its exhibition dates are driven by industry needs, not when a trade show hall happens to become available! It is more private and more informal than a trade show and this casual atmosphere made it a pleasant way for OEM managers to do business, and it keeps growing. We had impressive growth, 2011 exhibitors count represents a 20% growth from 2010, and more managers and suppliers realize that the OEM event provides an accessible and affordable opportunity to increase their international market presence.
With time allowable walk-ins from all product managers,sales and OEM purchasing staff are welcome, but we recommend you make meeting appointment before you go. How to reserve appointments, please follow the steps:
- Check the infomation online - exhibitors directory and floor map are available on the website.
- Because all meetings are private: No on-line reservation available, you must contact the company by yourself.
- You can find each company contact information by clicking its logo on the floor map.
