The 2016 edition of the Taiwan International Lighting Show (TILS) and LED Taiwan trade events will begin registration by exhibitors starting Aug. 11, the organizer has revealed.
The two annual trade shows, which have been bundled together, will be held at Taipei’s Nangang Exhibition Center between April 13 and 16, and exhibitors registering by the end of October will receive early-bird discounts, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) said.
TAITRA said TILS has been the biggest showcase in Taiwan for lighting technologies and applications, and its scale has been steadily growing.
TILS and LED Taiwan together featured 337 exhibitors from 10 countries in 2015. A total of 898 exhibition booths were set up for the two events, creating business opportunities estimated at more than US$ 13 million, TAITRA said.
Major exhibitors at the 2015 edition included lighting vendors and manufacturers, such as Everlight Electronics, Nanya Photonics, Epistar, Delta Electronics, Panasonic Taiwan, as well as technology research bodies, such as National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology and Industrial Technology Research Institute.
In order to raise the events’ international visibility, TAITRA said its overseas offices have been stepping up efforts inviting international buyers to the shows.
In 2015, 1,022 foreign buyers from China, Japan, the United States, Hong Kong, Singapore, Germany and other places visited the events, TAITRA said.
