The TWTC was started in January, 1986 by Taiwan's foremost trade promotion organization, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), to provide a single, modern venue that would combine exhibition space, conference facilities, offices, and hotel accommodation for international business. TWTC combines every possible service that brings together a vast consulting service on trade-related issues, trading partners, suppliers, and markets.
This four-in-one complex is designed to accommodate the needs of the international business community, which is why there is not just one, but four structures at the TWTC. The Exhibition Hall, Int'l Convention Center, Int'l Trade Building and Grand Hyatt, all comprise one integrated business complex. The TWTC stands at the forefront of world trade while serving as a model for global trade centers.
