Thanks, but after some searching I found the following contradicting info:
http://www.computextaipei.com.tw/zh_TW/ ... 33C6861689

I have yet to find the english equivalent of that statement but it goes like this in Chinese:
"參觀辦法
6月5日至6月6日僅開放國外買主及駐台國際採購人士。
6月7日至6月8日開放國內業者憑參觀證入場。
6月9日開放一般民眾購票入場,票價為每張新台幣200元。謝絕18 歲以下者入場。"

I won't take my chances and just get in line on saturday. I'm with my TW girlfriend so no hope posing as a foreign visitor and sneak us both inside.
I'm still curious how you got those tickets tcarnagan :ponder:

Incorrect. It's open to the public on Sunday.
I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.

Let's see, the Google translate version is

"Visit the way
June 5 to June 6, is only open to people of foreign buyers and international procurement in Taiwan.
June 7 to June 8 and opening up the domestic industry with the admission ticket admission.
June 9 to open the general public ticketed, the fare for each NT $ 200. Declined below the age of 18 admission. "

If there is going to be showgirls there, isn't this a little like taking sand to the beach? :discodance:

WOW - they go the way as the Church & Costco ? The misses and I joined 3x selling in the old' times Bluetooth devices to world wide buyers. Last time 3 years ago. More and more buyers stay away as there are many more opportunities in any China Sorcing Fair organized from Hong Kong, over Mumbai to Dubai.

On Computex, the smaller companies tend to show their newest inventions in Technology. Don't expect finding the A-brand over there.
I’m a dog shaped ashtray
I’m a shrugging moustache wearing a speedo tuxedo
I’m a movie with no plot, written in the back seat of a piss powered taxi
I’m an imperial armpit, sweating Chianti
I’m a toilet with no seat, flushing tradition down
I'm socialist lingerie
I'm diplomatic techno
I'm gay pastry and racist cappuccino
I’m an army on holiday in a guillotine museum
I’m a painting made of hair, on a nudist beach, eating McDonald's
I’m a novel far too long
I’m a sentimental song
I’m a yellow tooth waltzing with wrap around shades on

Who am I?
I am Europe

I'll go if I can get a ticket.
But it looks like SATURDAY, June 9, is when it is open to the general public, and NOT Sunday, June 10.
The last day of Computex is JUNE 9, SATURDAY.
