Due to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, countries have implemented several prevention measures which heavily affected the global economy. Taiwan, however, kept its industrial energy and economic growth despite the pandemic. IHS Markit predicted Taiwan's economic development in the 2021 third quarter reached 4.21%, exceeding most of the developed countries. The pandemic and the rapid growth of e-commerce, as well as the stay-at-home economy, boosted the demands of Taiwan's frozen marine products, canned food and other storable fish processed foods and the cold chain equipment.
Taiwan International Fisheries and Seafood Show, TIFSS 2021, Taiwan's only international B2B trade show and the largest fishery promotion platform, will bring industry worldwide players together and build one of the largest O2O (online to offline) platforms in East Asia. TIFSS 2021 will take place as an in-person show from December 2-4 and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the future digital marketing trend, TIFSS 2021 Online will also take place from December 2-31.
“With the online exhibition, you can take advantage of the one-month exhibition and collaborate with buyers from Taiwan and East Asian countries to increase your global sales without the cost of booth decoration, labor and shipping. Fishery companies from Latin America, Indonesia and Malaysia have already signed up for the exhibition,” the organization said.
