In response to the surging pandemic at home and abroad, the organizers of Taipei International Machine Tool Show (TIMTOS 2021), the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry (TAMI), have decided to postpone the originally planned physical exhibition, and keep the TIMTOS 2021 online exhibition (TIMTOS 2021 Online) as scheduled.

As part of the CEO Panel, the highlight of the conference, top executives from the machine tool industry, chairmen of Fair Friend, Hiwin, and Chin Fong, led an online discussion on "Restructuring for Smart Machine Industry in Post Pandemic Era" with TAITRA Chairman James Huang and TAMI Chairman Pa-Hsi Ko. "Taiwan’s performance in pandemic prevention has attracted worldwide attention, especially the resilience and flexibility manifested by the Taiwan manufacturing industry during the pandemic, which is proven to be a crisis and a turning point as well", said TAITRA Chairman, James Huang. Chairman Huang added that "The unprecedented changes in the market and the increasing demand for technological development contributed to industrial transformation, which will be seen in a variety of new products developed by TIMTOS exhibitors."
