World Congress on Information Technology 2017 in Taiwan

The World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT) 2017, to be held in Taiwan this September, aims to showcase the latest trends in the IT industry with an emphasis on smart city applications and services from the major players in the sector.

Organized by the Industrial Development Bureau (IDB) of Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA), the event will be held at the Taipei International Convention Center on September 10-13, 2017.

Under the theme “Fulfilling the Promises of the Digital Age: Building and Sharing the Dream,” WCIT2017 will feature conferences, business-to-business matching events, ICT awards and speeches, as well as a special exhibition on Taiwan’s smart city technologies at Taipei World Trade Center.

WCIT 2017 will mark the second time Taiwan has staged the event, having previously hosted in 2000. The organizer, IDB, will organize a one-day tour of the 4G smart city initiatives in Taipei City, New Taipei City and Taoyuan City.

The tour will focus on Taiwan’s smart transportation solutions, highlighting such advances as the nation’s freeway electronic toll collection system, YouBike public bicycle rental service, and eBus, a platform providing passengers with real-time information on bus locations.​
