Taipei Expo Park Expo Dome
This year marks the 9th Cultural and Creative Award, and the evaluation will target products (works) by exhibitors of the “2019 Creative Expo Taiwan.” An international jury will review all exhibits onsite at the exhibition, so that the Cultural and Creative Award can differentiate itself from other prestigious design awards in Taiwan that have longer histories, and serve as an annual index for domestic and foreign expert buyers and participating citizens when purchasing cultural and creative products. Through the organization and recognition of the award, the Ministry aims to continue encouraging cultural and creative enterprises that focus on innovations and the building of business models, and propel the development of the cultural and creative industry in Taiwan.
In 2019, TDC will continue to set up the “Talent 100” area at the Expo Dome, and invite emerging creative talent to partake in the exhibition. The exhibition will publically recruit domestic and overseas creators with high potential. The “Talent 100” area will feature approximately 100 booths.
The 2019 CET will be three primary exhibition halls: the “Cultural Concept / Hushan1914-Creative Park”, ”Design&Craft / Shongshan Culture and Creative Park” and “Licensing / Taipei Expo Park-Expo Dome”. By strengthening the cultural value of displayed products and proposing relevant themes for exhibition, the expo will interpret the views of generations and cultural aesthetic, which in turn inspire further design creative thinking. Furthermore, by creating connections between the Expo and the cultural environment in the city surrounding it, the unique style of Taiwanese life aesthetic and design ideas will be presented, thus making the 2018CET”The Most Thoughtful Expo in Asia”.
