The organizers have also invited Bravo, the mascot of the 2017 Summer Universiade in Taipei, to serve as the head auctioneer on the day of the event. Furthermore, a series of refurbished furniture, including a two-tier storage cabinet, computer cabinet, and TV cabinet with the autograph of Mayor Ko Wen-je, will also receive the spotlight at the upcoming auction. DEP also noted that the auction will include a new recycled product zone targeting students. Merchandise include 100 refurbished bicycles with student-discount price of NT$499.
