Affected by the global COVID-19 pandemic, the 6 th Taiwan International Machine Tool Show (TMTS 2020), originally scheduled in November, has been switched to an online 3D virtual exhibition – TMTS Virtual. TMTS Virtual will officially open on November 10th, showcasing the world's first professional online digital machine tool exhibition.
The Taiwan International Machine Tool Show (TMTS 2020), hosted by Taiwan Machine Tool & Accessory Builders' Association (TMBA), features a total of 719 exhibitors and more than 100 online virtual showrooms (TMTS Virtual). Through animated design and virtual product display planning, the professional image of Taiwan’s machine tool industry is reinforced before every visitor’s eyes. It shows the exhibitors’ efforts and ambitions in promoting the machine tool and accessory industry. Many leading brands and well-known manufacturers have joined this trend and prepared to present their latest products through the online virtual showroom. These companies include HABOR, YCM, VICTOR, CHEVALIER, FFG, SUN FIRM, CAMPRO, KAO MING, KAO FONG, Pinnacle, WELE, Hartford, JIUHYEH, Perfect Machine, Tailift, DOWELL, OCEAN, EVERISING, Gifu, Auto-Strong, Tanshing, PARKSON, SYIC, Earth-Chain, Parfaite, TOPSDISK, SPEED TIGER, PMC, etc.
Virtual exhibition is the “new normal” of display. Via Internet, content and activities are shown without the limit of time and space. It re-defines the existing model and emphasizes the importance of networking. TMTS has accumulated an accurate database of domestic and overseas buyers over the past decade. With this advantage, TMTS Virtual aims to extend exhibitors’ benefits, promote the industry and attract more business opportunities.
“With crisis comes opportunities”, Habor Hsu, the Chairman of TMBA, pointed out that the COVID-19 pandemic is the best time for industrial transformation. He encourages the industry to move towards smart manufacturing and automation. It is expected that TMTS Virtual can provide a “non-contact” and “zero-distance” connection between exhibitors and buyers, becoming the largest and most professional international trading platform for machine tools and accessory.
