Trade shows are not just there to display new products, they are also for chin-wagging, earwigging and palm-pressing. And they can be educational, too. The Taipei International Cycle Show is to feature seminars from the founder of Specialized, and the president of Euro trade org COLIBI (who also happens to be CEO of Accell, one of the potential bidders for Cannondale)
