COMPUTEX, Taiwan’s biggest tech trade event is the latest in a series of big regional (and global) events to be pushed backed due to the on-going Covid-19 crisis that has already afflicted more about 400,000 people worldwide.
In a statement sent to us by the organizers, to ensure the health and safety of exhibitors and visitors, the effectiveness of the exhibition, and maintaining the COMPUTEX brand image, COMPUTEX will be rescheduled to September 28-30, 2020 (originally it was set for June 2-6). Hopefully by that time, the Covid-19 pandemic has been successfully eliminated.
How this will impact participating brands and their release schedules is another thing altogether. While the official trade show will happen in September, TAITRA will organize a
COMPUTEX online exhibition on the Taiwantrade from June 2-6 and invite global
buyers to participate in online procurement meetings. TAITRA will also invite
exhibitors to conduct new product launches, as well as invite global ICT companies to
share 5G, AIoT, and other smart technology applications through various Webinars.
Gaming hardware companies showcase their new product series and their 2020 portfolio during this time. In previous years, it was in COMPUTEX where ASUS showcased a lot of technology-bending devices like its first gaming smartphone: the ROG Phone, or the first working dual-screen laptop with the Zenbook Duo and Zenbook Duo Pro.
As of now, we do not have word if ASUS will be participating in COMPUTEX once more of if they’ll come up with their own virtual product presentation. Keep it here at Ungeek as we bring you more news on this developing story.
