Coronavirus forces postponement of Taiwan boat show

Publish date:

The Taiwan International Boat Show, scheduled for March 12-15 at the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center, has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and co-organizers from the Kaohsiung city government, Bureau of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Economic Affairs and R.O.C. Taiwan have yet to reschedule the event.


“In these uncertain times, TAITRA stands together with Taiwanese industry and government to stabilize global confidence in Taiwan as the benchmark for sourcing quality and innovation. TAITRA will continue to organize several economic and trade development activities,” organizers said in the statement. “TAITRA will pull together and get through this difficult period to enjoy an even bigger, better and more successful than ever Taiwan International Boat Show.”
