Record visitor numbers expected at Computex
A record number of visitors to Computex Taiwan are expected this year at the world?s second largest IT trade show, which opens Tuesday. Last year's show attracted 129,947 visitors, the highest turnout in its 25-year history, according to event organizers. This year, some 133,000 visitors are expected to pack four halls of the Taipei World Trade Center and Taipei International Convention Center.
Like previous years, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council and the Taipei Computer Association are organizing the event. Since its inception in 1981, the trade show has touted itself as a platform for IT vendors in Taiwan to showcase their products. Today, the closely-watched event is the world's second-largest IT trade show after CeBIT in Germany.
