AMD, Intel, Qualcomm and more confirm their attendance at Computex 2021
Taiwan's External Trade Development Council TAITRA has announced that Computex 2021 will take place in Taipei. This physical event will be combined with a panel of additional virtual content that can be acccessed from anywhere throughout the show's May 31-June 30 itinerary.
This off-site part of the show (COMPUTEXVirtual) is to be run by AI in 2021, supplied by TAITRA's partner Appier. This, apparently, will deliver a "high-precision customer experience", which will also be applied to the sister exhibition devoted to start-ups, InnoVEX.
InnoVEX 2021 was also to have a hybrid structure this year; however, it has been obliged to cancel its onsite presence, and will thus be 100% virtual instead. Nevertheless, TAITRA promises showcases from companies involved in its native Taiwan's Accelerator Plus (or Acc+) program, alongside those originating from similar national initiatives such as those of the Netherlands.
As for Computex 2021 Hybrid itself, its contributors include NXP, Micron, Qualcomm and Supermicro at present. They will be joined by AMD and Intel, companies that had had to drop out of the show last year thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic. Finally, Acer and Arm have also been confirmed to attend Computex 2021 thus far.
