COMPUTEX d&i awards 2017

More than three decades of IT experience in Taiwan: Asia is well known for technological innovation, and in Taiwan’s capital Taipei the technology sector is growing rapidly. Initially only a regional show, the COMPUTEX TAIPEI event is today the largest IT trade fair in Asia, and it is one of the world's leading ICT tradeshows.

Technological progress is the basis for every type of change. Once every year Taipei becomes the center of the IT sector: Since the beginning of the 1980s, COMPUTEX TAIPEI provides more than a glimpse into the future. The COMPUTEX TAIPEI trade fair showcases technological progress in combination with award-winning design.

The COMPUTEX d&i awards, hosted for the first time in 2008 by TAITRA in cooperation with iF, have become a constant feature of the COMPUTEX TAIPEI trade fair. It honors products that stand out through excellent design.

Please note:
The award-winning products of the 2016 competition will be on display at CES 2017 in January 2017 as well as at MWC 2017 in February 2017.
