News & Events


Since the 1970s, Taiwan has made a name for itself as “The Bicycle Kingdom”. Building on this success, the TAIPEI CYCLE SHOW was first held in 1988 with the support of the Taiwanese government. Subsequently, domestic bike makes began to expand their markets abroad, and the bicycle industry in Taiwan has since grown to one of the largest in the world.

“The Bicycle Kingdom” has been able to establish itself in the premium segment, with high quality bicycle manufacturing and strong research and design capabilities. Now going into its 30th year, the TAIPEI CYCLE SHOW has become Asia’s largest and most prominent cycling trade fair.

For the past five years, a group of internationally renowned experts has gathered in Taipei every year before the TAIPEI CYCLE SHOW to evaluate the latest achievements of the bicycle industry. These professional jury sessions form the core of the TAIPEI CYCLE d&I awards, an international design competition and a seal of quality for the TAIPEI CYCLE SHOW. Passion and dedication mark the entries and the evaluation process. In 2016, 47 winners out of 182 entries from 19 countries were selected to represent the power of design and innovation. Winning the recognition is a distinguished achievement and a strong marketing strategy for designers and companies around the world.

In 2017, the TAIPEI CYCLE d&I awards will be once again hosted by TAITRA and TBA and organized by iF DESIGN ASIA Ltd. to reflect the new trends and developments of the cycling industry. We very much look forward to seeing new ideas and design achievements and would like to invite you to test your limits and convince our jury with your latest innovation.
