Exhibition Theme Description

To promote the event exchange platform, “Digital Taipei”, for the digital content industry, the Industrial Development Bureau, Ministry of Economic Affairs, has organized the exhibition since 2009 and this will be the 13th exhibition.

As the new post-pandemic way of life slowly becomes the norm, technology and 5G have been slowly incorporated into life and work. The entertainment has been gradually integrated. Innovative technologies are no longer only for the next generation or a single field, they are now fully realized in every aspect of life. The 2021 Digital Taipei will focus on “future smart technologies for life” combined with “technology”, “smartification”, “entertainment”, and “fashion”, to create a cross-field, cross-industry, smart technology filled Digital Taipei.

The planning of the entire exhibition area incorporates the virtual and the real together. The exhibition covers 12 physical displays and 4 virtual halls that cover the themes of smart manufacturing, smart entertainment, smart healthcare, and smart retail. The different themes are also integrated with the new applications of emerging technologies, including remote teamworking, CAVE immersive projection virtual training, mobile healthcare vehicles, 5G AR applications, and other software and hardware integrations. The hope is to use the Digital Taipei platform to allow industry, academia, government and the general public to experience the results of the government’s promotion of industry and digital transformations in a fun and casual way. Digital Taipei aims to create new trends in life that combine cross-field experiences and lead industry, academia, and government into the future.
