KUALA LUMPUR: Taiwan Excellence, the mark of quality for some of the best products coming out of Taiwan, is participating in this year’s premium architecture exhibition Archidex 2018 (International Architecture, Interior Design and Building Exhibition), from July 4 to 7.
About 25 Taiwanese manufacturers across different industries brought a total of 66 high quality smart home and city solutions to Malaysia to explore business opportunities.
Taiwan Excellence is Taiwan’s official certification for products that have met and exceeded stringent standards in their research & development (R&D), designs, quality, marketing and other aspects of innovation and creativity. The symbol has been around for 26 years and products are carefully selected each year to bear this mark of excellence.
The products to be showcased in this year’s Taiwan Excellence Pavilion will centre on smart solutions for building, office and homes. Equipment such as Buder’s three temperature water dispensers Amobile – the world’s first integrated thermal imaging and Push-to-Talk Mobile Inspection Assistant, and Caesar hydropower Sensor Faucet are some of the cutting edge smart living solutions to be revealed.
Representative of Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Malaysia James Chang Chi-ping stressed the importance of getting on board the smart living solution train in this interconnected era. Taiwan is a world leader in the global communication industry and is ready to share its high quality products and solutions with the world. Chang hopes that Malaysian companies can gain further understanding of Taiwan’s innovation and its value through the exhibition.
To better facilitate Malaysian companies’ understanding of Taiwanese smart technologies, the Taiwan Excellence Pavilion organised a forum titled “Smart Living with Taiwan Excellence” yesterday. Speakers from four leading smart technology brands from Taiwan, including the world famous D-Link, TUMÄ, Ardomus and SoftChef shared their expertise, insights as well as the future of smart living solutions.
The forum attracted many representatives from public works department, real estate developers, building systems contractors and institutes of higher learning as they gathered to learn about the latest developments in the market. According to a participating building system contractor, although Malaysia has put forth plans to develop smart technologies and the internet-of-things, many of these value-added services are still in its infancy. On the other hand, Taiwan is a leader in these technologies with a highly matured industry, making it the ideal partner for Malaysia’s own development.
Archidex has entered its 19th installment this year and is the largest and most influential architecture and building material exhibition in Malaysia as well as the region. Exhibitors from 12 countries and regions including the US, Switzerland, Austria, South Korea and Taiwan participated in the four-day exhibition, which will attract some 36,500 visitors. Taiwan Excellence Pavilion is located in Hall 9 in the grand ballroom of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Kuala Lumpur.
