ExA-SUMMIT 2017 takes place on Thursday,
June 1st at Palais de Chine Hotel in Taipei.

(During Computex, one of the largest computer and technology trade shows in the world.)


»Mobility requires cross-border cooperation, not isolated solutions. We need to find ways to combine the creative potential of Europe with Taiwan's experience in technology development in order to create valuable synergies for all involved.«

Stan Shih — Co-Founder and Honorary Chairman of Acer Inc., Chairman of Stans Foundation


The digitization of the transportation of people and goods will have a net impact of US-$5 Trillion globally within the next 10 years says Cisco. In addition Goldman Sachs quantifies the global economic benefits from autonomous driving at US-$3.5 Trillion. As both stats see Asia Pacific and Europe in the forefront, ExA-SUMMIT builds a bridge between them. Traditionally the summit takes place during the COMPUTEX, the largest B2B trade show for ICT and IoT in Asia.

In order to build a prosperous ecosystem for the Internet of Things, ExA-SUMMIT brings together 150 European and Asian representatives to discuss and identify common interests, and catalyze potential synergies.

ExA-SUMMIT is an invitation-only event, part of a long-term, far-reaching initiative to foster cross-continental cooperation, coordinated by the Wangdao Alliance.
