Registration for the TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2018 has officially opened. This year, iF DESIGN ASIA Ltd. has once again been invited
by TAITRA (Taiwan External Trade Development Council) and TBA (Taiwan Bicycle Association) to organize the standard-setting bicycle
competition. Designers, manufacturers, and distributors across all sectors of the industry are invited to register their designs until 31
August 2018. Both exhibitors and non-exhibitors of the TAIPEI CYCLE 2018 are all welcome to enter their latest innovations and take
center stage in Asia’s largest and most prominent bicycle tradeshow.

In response to the evolving trends of the bicycle industry, the TAIPEI CYCLE show will be taking on an all-new form from 2018 and has been rescheduled to take place from 31 October to 3 November 2018. The organizers are bringing a fresh look to the TAIPEI CYCLE d&i
awards 2018.

In recent years, IoT has been steering the bicycle industry toward new directions of application and engendered the emerging trend of improving
riding performance and rider comfort through the use of advanced technologies. For this reason, a brand new category, ‘IoT Applications for
Cycling’, has been added to the TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards. Submissions to this category might include wearables, handheld devices, Bluetooth-connected components, cloud systems, or system integration software for riding activities and the bicycle industry.

To encourage innovation in the design of complete bikes, four out of the eight gold award trophies this year will go to the best complete bikes and complete e-bikes. Moreover, to encourage the innovative efforts of new and upcoming companies, the winner of the “Gold Award – Young Enterprise” special honor will be exempted from the award winner’s fee.

The jury session of the TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2018 is scheduled to take place from 18 to 19 September 2018, to which the organizers will be
inviting highly professional and dedicated internationally renowned experts to examine and evaluate the entries. The panel of judges will also be
personally revealing the list of winners at a pre-show press conference on 19 September 2018.
