Portico Media attended this year's Digital Taipei."The event was even at a larger scale than last year. A lot of representation from Chinese buyers and VIPs as well as overseas buyers worldwide. These are all good signs for Taiwan's digital content industry," states Jay Lin, CEO of Portico Media.
The following is the report from the media:
Digital Taipei 2010 kicks off Taipei, Sept. 6 (CNA)
This year's Digital Taipei
attracted a record high of more than 200 buyers from around the world on its
opening day and could bring in millions of dollars as a result of on-site
business meetings, the organizers said Monday.
It is the second time Taiwan has held this international digital content event, which the organizers described as a perfect platform for both local and international companies involved in the industry.
"Taiwan, like many other countries, is moving toward the international stage. It is a big step and the reason we are holding this show, " said Oliver Wu, a consultant of the Taipei Computer Association.
The government has come up with various projects and incentives to boost the digital content industry, so it is gradually starting to boom, according to the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
The industry's output value in Taiwan has reached NT$460 billion, Economics Minister Shih Yen-shiang said, adding that Taiwan aims to increase the value to NT$780 billion by 2013, generating 31,500 jobs.
This year, the number of exhibitors and buyers has doubled. Compared to last year's fewer than 20, there are this year almost 50 buyers and exhibitors from foreign countries, including China, Malaysia, Thailand, Russia, Japan and Korea, Wu said.
Foreign countries, especially in the emerging markets, are particularly interested in Taiwan's digital content, said Wu, adding that although the show is not large, it is gaining more and more attention.
"The show is definitely small, but content-wise, I think it's very packed, so it is very interesting for us to be here," said Maxim Matveyko, vice president of Russia's Nival Group's Business Development, adding that he has been to many international shows and is still impressed by Taiwanese game developers.
Matveyko, visiting the show for the first time, said he would make use of this opportunity to bring new games back to his own country and introduce his company's two latest titles to Taiwan and the Asia-Pacific region.
Among the 200 more buyers attending the show, those from China alone account for about 160.
"We have come here to inspect, emulate and seek development and cooperation, " said K.Y. Zhu, secretary-general of the China-based Zhejiang Internet Association.
With various forums and about 130 one-on-one business meetings scheduled to take place on the sidelines of the show, the organizers were hopeful that it can lead to greater potential for markets worldwide, including Taiwan. (By James Lee) ENDITEM/J
