Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, Hall 1
The opening ceremony of the 2020 "Food Taipei Mega Shows" was held in Hall 1 of the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center on December 17. This year's mega shows were organized as a joint exhibition, combining 6 related exhibitions (FOOD TECH, BIO/PHARMATECH TAIWAN, TAIPEI PACK, TAIWAN HORECA, and HALAL TAIWAN) to fully demonstrate the supply chains and related facilities of the up-, mid- and downstream industries. Mindful of the coronavirus pandemic, the exhibition was also one of the few major food exhibitions in the world to be successfully organized and conducted physically this year under required health and safety precautions. As the largest international food exhibition in Taiwan, it included 925 domestic and international companies and consisted of 1,880 booths, thereby affirming the robustness of Taiwan's food industry. In addition to the local traditional Taiwanese cuisine, specialties worldwide were also presented on site through the participation of 16 countries. Given the international stature of this exhibition, local participants were able to experience various cuisines firsthand without traveling abroad.
