2019 Taipei Electric Appliance Fair to be held at TWTC January 17-21

Taipei Electric Appliance Fair     The 2019 Taipei Electric Appliance Fair, Taiwan’s largest home appliance event that is customarily held near the end of the lunar year, will take place January 17-21 in the Taipei World Trade Center. Hosted by the Taiwan Electrical Appliance Association and the Taipei Electrical and Commercial Association (TECA), this year’s fair brings together more than 100 exhibitors with a total of 350 booths. The event marks a good opportunity for people to discard the old and embrace the new, as is the custom before the Chinese New Year. 
     At the media event to open the fair, Commissioner Lin Chung-chieh of Taipei City Government’s Department of Economic Development (DED) noted that the electrical appliance industry is very important, and electrical products are constantly being upgraded and innovated. The home appliance industry is going through a process of transformation and upgrade, driving such trends as “smart control" as well as "energy conservation and environmental protection.” To turn Taipei into the leader of sustainable and energy-efficient cities, Taipei City Government organized the Taipei Energy Conservation Festival 2018, whereby physical channels, e-commerce, and electrical appliance stores jointly spread energy-saving know-how and promoted the purchase of new energy-efficient products to replace wasteful ones. The total power savings achieved by last year’s festival was 130 GWh, enough to light up the Taipei 101 building for 562 days. These savings meant a carbon emission reduction of 70,000 tons, demonstrating the effectiveness of energy-saving appliances when it comes to low-carbon lifestyles.
     TECA is offering a free tour around this year's electrical exhibition. The tour is open to any interested parties. Consumers that make an online appointment with an exhibitor at the fair may collect a NT$ 1000 voucher at the central gift and service counter. Certain booths offer special price reductions for on-the-spot purchases, and visitors may also join a lottery with prizes worth NT$ 300,000. Anyone who spends NT$ 10,000 at the fair can join a lucky draw for a red envelope with NT$ 10,000 in cash.
