Discover 3 shows blossoming with gifts from the heart
Apr 22, 2017

Taipei, Taiwan: Cherry blossoms in Taipei usher in three of Asia's best gift-related trade shows which showcase creativity and value. The major show, the 71st Giftionery, showcases the business of gifts with the latest trends and products from April 26 to 29.

Co-hosted with Giftionery Taipei (Taipei Gift & Stationery Show) are two other shows that offer thousands of items: Houseware Taiwan (Taiwan Houseware & Home Décor Show) and Taiwan Souvenir (Taiwan Souvenir & Handicraft Show). Three shows are to open under one roof at TWTC Exhibition Hall 1 with 530+ exhibitors at 600+ booths and 20,000 visitors.

Giftionery this year features three new areas of "Creative Designs", "Outdoor Lifestyle", and "Rising Stars" that enhance various favorites like School & Office Supplies, General Gifts, Tech & Trendies, Printing & Packaging, and Brand Licensing.

The products at Giftionery include a color-changing mug that radiates a city night scene when heated with a warm drink (COCERA), artistic sculptures (VENUS), LED signs (SUNMADE), tailor-made acrylic displayers (JIMSO), adjustable seat cushions (KUONAO), leather wallets for 3C (LIEVO), metallic pens (IWI), color-changing light bulbs (PEGA), , elegant timepieces (NEW CLASSIC DESIGN), cultural & creative bags (PROMAX) and a 2016 iF-awarded cable butler (MOOY).

Bringing global color are exhibitors from more than ten nations, including Australia, Bhutan, China, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Japan, Nepal and Panama. From last year, their presence has grown 9% to compose a quarter of exhibitors. Top rated among their goods are scarves, brassware and sculptures.

After glowing reviews at last year's premiere, Taiwan Houseware has returned a great line-up of life and living products, like bedding (TAIWAN BEDDING INDUSTRY SOLIDARITY UNION), glaze containers and ornaments (CHINA GLAZE), adjustable rolling pastry cutters (GOODLIFE), multi-function compact hotplates (ENE-GREEN), planter pots in the shape of baseballs (CP6), bathroom accessories (IMMANUEL), home furnishings (Chingpu), and cutlery & kitchen utensils (Art Pot).

That creativity carries over to the adjacent Taiwan Souvenir which returns for the sixth year. It highlights the theme "lifestyle with taste" that's spotlighted by a vast assortment of the traditional, novel and hand-crafted products. Visitors can sample new beverages and confectioneries and discover many health specialties and the latest in green packaging.

Souvenir's four exhibit areas embrace Delicacy & Fine Tastes; Tea, Coffee, and Wine; Local Specialties; and Signature Souvenirs. Among the outstanding products on display are fried fish floss gift boxes (WEI-I), refreshing watermelons (GOBUY), red rice yeast and red oolong tea rocks (SHENG FA), boxed teabag gift sets (LU DING JI), award-winning peanut candy (LIYI), wines exquisitely packed in oak crates (BAISHUIFANGHUA), indigenous handicrafts (TAITUNG COUNTY), and made-in-Taiwan cookware (SAN-YEH).

The shows come with enlightening, profitable and fun events: "Do-It-Yourself" allows visitors to enjoy doing clay-molding, planting, etc. themselves; keynote speakers at seminars on global design trends brief visitors on the latest trends; one-on-one procurement meetings let exhibitors meet face to face with buyers. Voting for "Most Popular Products" on-site finalizes favorite products through pre-show on-line voting, and "Hot Product Updates" will be introduced on stage by several exhibitors.

Organized by TAITRA, the four-day Giftionery Taipei with Houseware Taiwan and Taiwan Souvenir will be open free to the trade and buyers with business cards, and to the public with purchase of an NT$150 comprehensive entry ticket per person.
