Taipei International Machine Tool Show, also known as TIMTOS, will return in 2023 from March 6 to 11 at Nangang Exhibition Center, Halls 1 & 2, and TWTC Hall 1.
With 1,000+ exhibitors in nearly 6,100 booths, an even larger scale than in 2022, TIMTOS 2023 will be the largest trade show ever recorded after Taiwan recently lifted all its border controls since the COVID-19 outbreak.
At present, foreign professionals are free to travel to Taiwan to participate in trade shows as usual, and the global machine tool industry is getting elated about the coming TIMTOS 2023. As a result, there are increasing demands for bigger booth spaces, and meanwhile, delegations are coming from Vietnam, Turkey, India, etc., according to TAITRA, the organizer.
In a press conference for TIMTOS 2023 today, the show organizers, Simon Wang, President & CEO of TAITRA, and Larry Wei, Chairman of TAMI, unveiled the highlights of the coming TIMTOS 2023. TAITRA CEO Wang pointed out that the new slogan for TIMTOS “Keep Rolling in Metalworking” highlighted the mega show’s claim to link up the global machine tool ecosystem to make metal processing smarter, more efficient, and more sustainable. It is not an understatement to say that the growing metalworking industry worldwide is one of the major forces driving sustained global growth, Wang said.
TAMI Chairman Wei is also confident of the success of TIMTOS 2023. Taiwan’s machine tool industry has become more resilient since the pandemic, keeping working on intelligent transformation and adding value to its products.
