Wow! Taiwan Selects @ Kuala Lumpur

On August 11, I was invited to the Wow! Taiwan Selects which was held at Suria KLCC. A brief introduction about Wow! Taiwan Selects – It's an overseas marketing program commissioned by the Foreign Trade Bureau of the Ministry of Economic Affairs to assist Taiwan businesses to tap into the ASEAN and Indian markets, through curating quality trade shows and building a strong network with overseas buyers. 

Since 2015 Wow! Taiwan Selects has been launched in the ASEAN countries, with different themes each year based on distinct markets and various consumer lifestyles. Every year it selects brands with smart designs and unique taste, and introduces them to global buyers and consumers by carefully organized marketing campaigns and presentations. Until now, Wow! Taiwan Selects has assisted more than 50 Taiwanese businesses to connect with the seven largest distributors and retailers in ASEAN, brought about more than 150 media coverage, both domestic and foreign, and stimulated more than 3 million US dollars sales.

Taiwan's famous 'Little Traffic Light Man', the ubiquitous animated traffic signal that tells pedestrians around the country when it is safe to cross the road, is an Instagram worthy picture that visitors make a beeline for when in Taiwan. 

This made-in-Taiwan phenomenon is just one of the many unique features of Taiwan that visitors can experience at the W! Taiwan Selects event, held at Suria KLCC, where over 60 products comprising some of Taiwan's best lifestyle brands are on display.
