TAICCA highlighted upgrades to international market events and unveiled the TCCF logo design and animation. In the post-COVID-19 pandemic era, TAICCA brings the creative content marketplace from Taiwan to the world, with the ambition and perspective to lead the content industry and experience economy in the future.
This year, the TCCF merges multiple existing content industry events, including the Creative Content Taipei, XMediaMatch from Book to Screen Business Matching, and the future content industry, into a brand-new international content market and creative culture brand.
The TCCF event has three main highlights. First, TAICCA designs new mechanisms for content development, international co-productions, and venture capital matchmaking that are rooted in Taiwan. Second, TCCF welcomes buyers and professionals worldwide with digital marketplace and services to invest in Taiwanese content. Third, the conferences will present the latest leading trends, insights, outstanding creative practices across industries in Taiwan, to provide new content experiences and trade opportunities.
“Through this upgraded event,” said Chairperson Hsiao-Ching Ting, “TAICCA motivates content industry and market in the post-pandemic world. In the international market and exhibition, we connect stakeholders, creators, and investors in cultural content industries. Cross-media performances and conferences showcase innovative creative content and new possibilities from Taiwan. It is a great opportunity for market players to learn about the latest developments and Taiwan as a cultural brand. TCCF will demonstrate a wide variety of content and soft power of Taiwan, and become a flagship international content market and trade show in Asia.”
