Organization: Industrial Development Bureau, MOEA        Publish Date: 2017-05-02 17:51
Ministry of Economic Affairs announced on April 27, 2017, the “2017 Taiwan Design Expo” to be jointly organized by Ministry of Economics, Tainan City Government, and National Cheng Kung University. The expo will run from September 30 to October 15 at the old library compound of National Cheng Kung University in Tainan, and will collaborate with six satellite venues, including Blueprint Cultural and Creative Park, Wu’s Garden Culture Center, Creative Tainan, Tainan Cultural and Creative Park, 321 Art Village, and NCKU C-Hub. With the concept of “the City is the Exhibition Hall,” the organizers set up 1 6 exhibition venues across the city of Tainan where design will flourish and blossom, bringing citizens the incredible sensation as the city becomes one giant exhibition place. Minister Lee Chih-kung of Economic Affairs, Mayor Lai Ching-te of Tainan City, and President Su Huey-jen of National Cheng Kung University jointly attended the signing ceremony today (27), and announced this year’s theme, “Design For Happiness.” This year’s expo is expected to attract over 200,000 visitors, setting off a frenzy of design in southern Taiwan!

In addition to static exhibition, the expo this year also collaborates with creative lifestyle businesses and tourism factories to provide design experiential tours, allowing citizens to further blend into Tainan’s local life and fully experience the atmosphere and living aesthetics of Tainan’s alleys.

The core value of Taiwan Design Expo is to integrate resources of the central and local governments. Through the interpretation, transformation, and value adding by design, the expo reconnects local culture, education, and industries, while also combining international design trends and perspectives to reconstruct the public’s understanding of living aesthetics and cultural style, and enhance industries’ recognition of design’s value, so that Taiwanese design industry will continue to thrive and flourish!
