TMTS 2020 switched to virtual exhibition, next physical edition planned for 2022
This year’s edition of TMTS – the Taiwan International Machine Tool Show, will be held online. The organizers from the Taiwan Machine Tool & Accessory Builders’ Association (TMBA) announced that despite their efforts for the show to take place as scheduled in Taichung, due various reasons, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, travel difficulties for international visitors and exhibitors, and the unbearable loss of temporary suspension, the event had to be transformed to a virtual exhibition.
"We will be launching the virtual exhibition, along with a series of parallel physical events in the TMTS week (10-14 November 2020). In this way, not only can we guarantee the safety and health of our exhibitors and visitors, but we can also keep them connected. The next physical exhibition of TMTS is scheduled for 2022. We sincerely appreciate the understanding from all of our exhibitors and visitors, as well as the partners from all around the world", states the official press release of the TMBA.
The virtual TMTS 2020 will be held as a 3D digital exhibition, which will include intelligent machinery solutions, professional forums, business matching and special events. The event will showcase the professional brand image of machine tools, and the accurate domestic and international buyer database collected over the past 10 years, continuing to serve the exhibitors. Over the coming months TMBA will promote the TMTS Online Exhibition and extend its benefits in order to attract more domestic and overseas resources and business opportunities.
TMTS is an industry-targeted exhibition. More than 86 000 buyers visited the site of last years’ five-day show. There was also a heated discussion on the Internet before and after the exhibition. Display categories of TMTS include: metal cutting and metal forming machines; machine tool accessories, components and parts, hydraulic and pneumatic components, electronic control and drive systems, auxiliary equipment; cutting tools, toolholding and workholding devices, measuring systems and quality assurance; smart manufacturing systems, industrial robots, controller and related software (CAD/CAM etc.); other associated equipment, raw materials, technologies and publications.
