Global expansion of Taiwan International Tools & Hardware Expo

The Taiwan International Tools & Hardware Expo made its debut in Taichung in 2022, marking a significant milestone in Taiwan's post-pandemic era. As Taiwan's inaugural industrial hardware exposition, it was led by prominent industry associations and received strong support from the government. In 2023, the expo is poised to strengthen its presence in international markets, affirming its commitment to fostering global partnerships. By adopting a globalised and localised approach to organise buyer groups, the organisers have attracted registration from exhibitors in Germany, China, and other countries. The expo aims to captivate the attention of key buyers worldwide, emphasising the opportunities and innovations that Taiwan has to offer.

In 2023, the summit plans to analyse strategies for positioning high-end hardware tools in the global market, explore AI-integrated manufacturing technologies, address the “three-carbon issues” (Carbon Neutrality, Carbon Emissions, and Carbon Footprint Verification), and discuss profit control.

In the first half of 2023, over 250 exhibitors have already registered, gaining recognition from manufacturers in the hardware tools, machine tool components, screws and fasteners, and industrial security sectors. Over 70% of previous exhibitors have committed to returning. The number of participating exhibitors has surged by 49% compared to the same period last year, accompanied by a significant 37.3% increase in the overall exposition area, with 350 exhibitors expected to be taking part in the 2023 event. Notably, industry exhibitors in the hardware tools sector, including JACO, ALLPRO, PROXENE and REDAI, as well as the metal sheet processing group BYSTRONIC, composite fastener manufacturer SHEH KAI, pneumatic tools manufacturer KUANI, gardening tools manufacturer WISE CENTER, the biggest tool case exporter in Taiwan MACHAN, and automotive aftermarket repair tools manufacturer LIH YANN, have chosen to participate in this international event.

The Taiwan International Tools & Hardware Expo offers a one-stop buyer service and a subsidy system exclusively designed for buyers. This service and system efficiently categorises buyers according to their specific needs, providing tailored accommodation and transportation arrangements. Buyers will receive invitation letters to facilitate their visa applications, and all necessary check-in procedures for the events will be completed in advance, eliminating any financial burden for the buyer. The unified platform will assist buyers with flight bookings and promptly confirm arrival times for accommodation arrangements. Furthermore, the expo organises international buyer procurement meetings in collaboration with diplomatic missions and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council. Through the coordination of a global agency that organises buyer groups to visit Taiwan for procurement purposes, targeted buyers can be reached with precision. This strategic alignment with government resources enables Taiwanese businesses to effectively expand their marketing presence in the highly competitive global environment.

The exposition will consist of seven exhibition areas, 1) Tools & Related Accessories, 2) Automotive Parts, Repair Tools & Maintenance Equipment, 3) Fasteners & Fixings, 4) Garden, Outdoor, Agricultural, & DIY, 5) Metal Testing Equipment, Processing Equipment, & Industrial Safety, 6) Building & Locks, and 7) Industrial Software & Digital Transformation.
