About TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards by iF
TAIPEI CYCLE, a well-reputed event within the bicycle industry, was established in 1988. Over 30 years, the show has brought together manufacturing and R&D resources, as well as established Taiwan's leading position in the global bicycle industry. Design and R&D have always been a constant source of competition for the industry. Hence, beginning from 2012, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council and Taiwan Bicycle Association commissioned iF DESIGN ASIA to organize the TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards. So far, it has been held for nineth editions, establishing a design and creativity interaction and exhibition platform for the global bicycle industry. In recent years, the event has integrated emerging fields such as cloud big data, smart IoT, and the aesthetics of living as competition categories, with the goal of promoting more diversified and consumer-oriented industry applications and development.
