Minister of Economic Affairs Lin Chuan-neng and Mayor Huang Min-hui of Chiayi City jointly hosted a contract signing press conference today (4/28), announcing that Chiayi City will host the 2021 Taiwan Design Expo from October 1 to 17. This year's expo will feature three major exhibition areas at the G9 Creative Park, Chiayi Sawmill, and Chiayi Old Prison, while also partnering with other venues, including the Chiayi Art Museum, Chiayi Railway Station, Vision Station, and the Alishan Forest Railway Garage Park, to ignite the city's design energy.
To showcase the design energy of Chiayi City's local industries, the Ministry of Economic Affairs has worked with Chiayi City since 2020 to provide local enterprises guidance in the areas of aesthetics, branding and packaging, merchandising, field activities, and corporate sustainability strategy, and these achievements will all be exhibited at the 2021 Taiwan Design Expo. Examples include the "Chia" Cake developed by the century-old "New Taiwan Bakery" that blends the imageries of sunrise at Alishan Mountain, the Central Fountain, turkey rice, and the Qihu Youth Baseball Team; the spatial makeover and branding of the Museum of Old Taiwan Tiles that introduces new applications for old tiles to give old houses a more modern look; and the optimization of the branding and packaging of Chinyi Eggs Technology Corporation and Tong Bae Food Co., Ltd. Moreover, an eco-friendly demo night market of Chiayi City is being created to allow citizens to visit the expo in the morning and the design night market in the evening.
