Technological progress is the basis for every type of change. Once every year Taipei becomes the center of the IT sector: since the beginning of the 1980s, COMPUTEX TAIPEI provides more than a glimpse into the future. The COMPUTEX TAIPEI trade fair focuses on new products and facts and presents an ideal platform to show technological progress combined with outstanding design. The COMPUTEX design & innovation awards (COMPUTEX d&i awards), hosted for the first time in 2008 by TAITRA in cooperation with iF, have become a constant feature of the COMPUTEX TAIPEI trade fair. It honors products that stand out through excellent design. 2014 will see the seventh COMPUTEX d&i awards. All exhibitors at the COMPUTEX TAIPEI trade fair and all companies of the ICT industry are welcome to participate in the design award initiated by TAITRA. The awards ceremony will take place in June 2014 at the COMPUTEX TAIPEI trade fair.
