For those who don’t know, COMPUTEX Taipei, or Taipei International Information Technology Show, is a computer expo held annually in Taipei, Taiwan. Since the early 2000s, it is among one of the largest computer and technology trade shows in the world.

COMPUTEX is co-organized by government-funded Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and private sector Taipei Computer Association (TCA). The first expo, then called Taipei Computer Show, was held in 1981 and started out as a place where small and medium-sized businesses in Taiwan’s nascent computer industry could display their products. Stan Shih, a former head of the TCA, proposed to change to the current name in the fourth expo.

As Taiwan’s information technology industry took off in the early 1990s, COMPUTEX has since rapidly expanded and become an important showcase for the IT industry globally. Now it has become the second largest computer expo in the world (after CeBIT) and the largest in Asia, with participation from major manufacturers such as Intel, AMD, NVIDIA, and others, as well as Taiwanese brand names such as Acer and ASUS.

COMPUTEX 2016 is organized around four main pillars: IoT applications, innovation & startups, business solutions, and gaming.

The 2016 show will also increase its focus on industry trends through the establishment of three new exhibits: SmarTEX (IoT technologies and applications), InnoVEX (innovation and startups), and iStyle (Apple MFi-certified peripherals). These three exhibits will create a comprehensive overview of the Internet of Things and startup ecosystems.

COMPUTEX 2016 will be held from May 31st to June 4th.
