Last June, we were invited to experience and join the Taiwan Excellence 2018 event which has lots of exciting tech brands and activities at SMX Aura Convention Center.

Taiwan Excellence 2018

Currently, I think this is our 3rd time attending the Taiwan Excellence, the event is more about promoting Taiwan's Asian economic powerhouse’s vibrant image, culture, brands, and industries to enhance awareness and also its business cooperation with Philippine consumers. What's good with the events like Taiwan Excellence is that it's never boring and you can discover new products that are usually well-known manufacturers in Taiwan.

The event started with a very lively MC and a dance number which surely grabs everyone's attention to be an event kick starter.

Afterwards, there are opening speeches by Director Clement Chen (Taiwan Trade Center, Manila), Alfred Wang, (Director of Economic Division, Taipei Economic & Cultural Office) and Ambassador Benedicto Yujuico (Chairman of Philippine Chamber of Commerce & Industries) for celebrating Taiwan Excellence's anniversary.

Following this, the three main company brands (ASUS, Atop & Gigabyte) gave talks about their products, goals, and visions.

Antoneil Factora, ASUS Philippine's Marketing Head
ASUS Philippines talk about their goals and vision in providing innovative technology to consumers and businesses from the past years. Products mentioned are the likes of powerbanks, AI robot called Zenbo and their currently AI-powered flagship smartphones -- Zenfone 5 series.

Jopson Li, President Director of Atop
Atop, an industrial communications company, talked about their currently implemented smart transportation solution in Indonesia. Few of the interesting things about their talk is that they made a solution where smart signages transmit information to drivers via a mobile app and they provided an easy way of managing a power substation by using SMS as a way of communication with the system.

Mary Grace Martinez, Product Trainer of Gigabyte Philippines

Gigabyte talked and showcased about their new chipset and gaming products that mainly highlights their newest Z370, H370, B350 Aorus motherboards.

After the talks, the morning session ended with a picture taking with the speakers and special guests from the stage.

The event continued throughout till 7PM (& the next day) and the organizers held three (3) Happy Hour Draws that will let any guests win 1) Paper Shoot Camera, 2) Silicon Power Hard Drive, and a brand new 3) ASUS Zenfone! Woah!

Taiwan Excellence never disappoints, they did really showcased innovative and exciting products this year (which is expected of course!) especially since I'm a tech geek, I'm very satisfied with the event.
