• April 2-5, 2018, Taipei
• Nangang Exhibition Center
The Taiwan Intn’t Woodworking Machinery Show takes place the first week of April 2018 in Hall 1 of the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center. Themed “Work Greener, Live Better,” the show is expected to draw more than 6,400 visitors to 200-plus exhibitors of equipment and suppliers spread across 1,060 booths. (The 2015 edition of Wood Taiwan featured 188 exhibitors and 6,365 attendees. U.S. visitors were the eighth largest group among 930 foreign visitors from 55 countries.
Despite its well-developed wood machinery manufacturing industry, Taiwan is not really a player in wood products. Following the rapid decimation of its domestic forests a few decades back, the government banned commercial logging. Now more than 90 percent of its lumber and panel is imported, and so Taiwan emphasizes machine manufacturing over machining wood.
