Taiwan’s ICT industry is an important cog in the global technology supply chain. During the upcoming World Congress on IT (WCIT) from November 18th to 20th, a total of 37 outstanding Taiwanese corporations, including 14 Taiwan Excellence awarded-winning brands, led by the Ministry of Economic Affairs will be presenting their innovative information and communication technology solutions.
WCIT, known as the Olympics of ICT, is one of the most important IT events in the world. Hosted in a different country each year, Malaysia is once again hosting WCIT in 2020 with the theme “The Gateway to Southeast Asia”. However, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the event has been switched to a full-featured online exhibition.
The Smart Taiwan Pavilion will use VR 360 technology, allowing visitors to enjoy the sensory experiences of attending the event and interact with exhibitors directly.
Besides that, Mr. James C.F. Huang, Chairman of TAITRA, is scheduled to give an online keynote speech at 4.20pm on the 18th of November on the topic “Beyond COVID: Technology as Vaccines for Business” where he will discuss how this pandemic has accelerated global digitalization and calls for companies to transition effectively to a more robust business model through the mastery of new technologies.
To provide visitors with a glimpse of the future of digital technologies, Taiwan Excellence will be centered around the theme of “Smart Connectivity, Smart Living” and showcasing latest products from its exhibitors, namely Apacer’s industrial-grade smart remote monitoring software; Aver’s conferencing systems designed for larger scale meetings; In Win’s stylists gaming cases; Transcend’s shockproof and waterproof portable SSD solutions; as well as network storage solutions and switches by IEI X QNap.
