Taiwan Excellence comes to Davao to share the ‘excellent lifestyle’
Aiming to establish strong ties with Dabawenyos, Taiwan Excellence will bring cutting-edge Taiwanese technology to Davao City in March, as part of the 2019 Davao International Marathon (DIM 2019).
Executive Vice President of TAITRA Simon Wang, expressed the brand’s desire to build a harmonious relationship with the city, and advance bilateral growth for both Taiwan and Davao.
“We are bringing Taiwan Excellence products to Davao City to introduce the Taiwanese tradition of innovation to more consumers in the Philippines,” he said.
Citing similarities such as the “vibrant environment and population”, Wang believes the city is a great fit for Taiwanese innovations.
For the past six years, Taiwan Excellence has steadily built a strong reputation in Manila. After receiving positive feedback for their efforts, they are now expanding their reach to drive greater awareness in the Davao market, and power its second marathon.
“Innovations from Taiwanese brands are everywhere. Our work here in Davao is to ensure that more people recognize the distinction of earning a Taiwan Excellence Award,” Wang added.
Experiencing the excellent lifestyle
An array of top-notch Taiwanese brands and products on display at the Taiwan Excellence Experience Zone at the DIM Race Village will bring to life the ‘excellent lifestyle’.
Guests can then immerse themselves in the more than 30 pioneering products that have won the prestigious Taiwan Excellence Award.
Taiwanese tech prowess was on full display in presenting incredible gadgets from ASUS, impressive TRANSCEND tech, superior storage devices from ADATA, and innovative ZYXEL networking devices.
Smart motorcycles from KYMCO and foldable bikes from TERN will be showcased at the event. Meanwhile, ALYA will boast their advanced water filtration systems, powerful automotive winches will be presented by COMEUP, and trailblazing backpacks from DEYA alongside quality swimming goggles from SAEKO will also be featured; and finally, JOHNSON FITNESS will highlight their efficient fitness machines.
The much-coveted award, according to Wang, honors Taiwan’s most innovative products “that provide innovative value to users worldwide”. Each product has been selected for a specific Taiwan Excellence Award based on their excellence in the following categories: design, quality, marketing, R&D, and lastly, it should be made in Taiwan. Sought worldwide, the symbol of Taiwan Excellence is recognized by 102 countries and growing.
DIM Race Director Roel Ano, expressed his gratitude for Taiwan Excellence’s support for the race.
“The event’s success could not be possible without the support of Taiwan Excellence,” Ano said. “I hope after this event, more people will feel the power of Taiwan Excellence.”
Asked about his favorite product at the Experience Zone, Ano praised the competitive goggles from Saeko. “I have my eyes set on the Carina Mirror goggles from Saeko. Their quality will surely help the performance of triathletes here in the Philippines.”
The participating runners are also looking forward to the Experience Zone.
“I personally use Transcend products to protect my digital files. I find it reassuring to know they are part of this big group that ensures consumers like me always get the best,” says renowned marathon runner Mary Joy Tabal.
Apart from the astounding technology, the day also features local singer-actor Kyle Echarri, who championed Taiwan Excellence. As someone who is always on the road, Echarri said he depends on his Asus powerbank to power his devices.
“During long journeys, you need something as reliable as Taiwan Excellence products. You can truly rely on them to help you achieve your best,” Echarri said.
Another highlight for the day is the lucky draw that offers four lucky guests the opportunity to experience innovation firsthand, as they go home with brand new units of the ZENFONE MAX PRO M2.
