Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers of FOOD TAIPEI MEGA SHOWS 2021, TAITRA, TFPMA, TPA and Chan Chao International, announce that the trade shows rescheduled to October 6-9, 2021 at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, Hall 1 & Hall 2 (TaiNEX1&2).

In addition to the physical shows, FOOD TAIPEI MEGA SHOWS ONLINE will be launched for a month from October 6th to November 5th with the online services including virtual booths display, meeting scheduling and message leaving.

Medical Taiwan 2021 regret to announce that the physical show has been postponed to October 14th -16th due to concerns about spreading COVID-19 infections.

Following on from the latest developments in the spread of COVID-19, the Taiwan Center for Disease Control currently recommends suspending or postponing large-scale public gatherings. TAITRA, the organizer of Medical Taiwan 2021, has taken this recommendation into consideration and made the decision to prioritize public health and welfare at this time.

Medical Taiwan 2021 have been made possible by a digital transformation of the show by building up online services and strategies to promote business between exhibitors and buyers. It will feature virtual booths, online meetings, and video conferencing. The virtual show will be scheduled to October 7th – 21st.

2021 Select LA Investment Summit
Oct 20 @ 8:00 am – Oct 21 @ 5:00 pm

Los Angeles is home to United States’ largest county economy, with an annual GDP of over $707 billion. With 88 fantastic cities and over 100 unincorporated areas within Los Angeles County, investment opportunities here are unrivaled throughout the nation. In fact, FDI Cities Magazine ranked Los Angeles 5th in the world for return on foreign investment. More than 18 million consumers live in the five counties that make up the Greater Los Angeles Region, establishing the area as one of the United States’ largest and most attractive marketplaces for every business type. Over 10,300 foreign- owned enterprises have already selected Southern California as their U.S. landing pad, with more selecting Los Angeles each week.

As international companies enter a new market, they often struggle to find the right local partners to integrate into this complex region. The needs of international companies are unique, and a holistic strategy must be carefully developed to navigate business channels and discover the right opportunity in Los Angeles. This is the essence of the Select LA Investment Summit. Select LA provides international and local companies with a comprehensive understanding of the region’s investment ecosystem with actionable insights that can guide key business decisions.

Through matchmaking technology and over four hours of networking, Select LA offers the perfect environment to create and foster new relationships with individuals who are responsible for turning a conversation into an investment opportunity. Just as important as a connection is understanding the local processes and protocol to ensure successful transactions, which is why we gather state and local government officials in addition to private businesses.

The World Trade Center Los Angeles and the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation are delighted to jointly host the summit, presenting an array of opportunities to match international investors with local partners, such as table exhibits, one-on-one interactions, plenary panels and breakout sessions led by local and international executives.
