We Are Shipping Jon To Taipei – Computex 2019

From humble beginnings in 1981 Computex has grown into the worlds second largest computer expo in the world only surpassed by CeBIT. You can be sure to find major manufacturers such as IntelAMDNVIDIA, and others, as well as Taiwanese brand names such as Acer and ASUS.

Since most of these companies are already in our partner network, we thought it would be nice to pay them a visit. And how convenient it would be to scout for new partners when all of the main players in our hardware branch is all at the same expo.

Before 2003 – the European CeBIT show was known to be the show where all manufacturers of Taiwan introduced their latest product offerings. After 2003 that changed dramatically. Multiple Chinese/Taiwanese/US companies stopped joining CeBIT in Hannover because of high booth costs and logistics. In 2003 Computex was forever changed for the better and has continuously grown to be a bigger and bigger show in regards to technology offerings. My trip to Computex will be my 6th trip to the show after 16 years as an Editor in chief of my own online hardware magazine – my trip will be a memorable one as I last visited Computex in 2008. I have ever since missed the show and the colleagues of the business. It will both be great to visit old friends and business partners, as well as experiencing the many products of our partners before they hit the market shelves. And from that I bet – we will gain a lot of cool contacts and stuff coming towards GTR24h EEWC 2019.

Jon Fabricius Turell

We will be sending Jon of to Taipei with a full schedule of more than 30 meetings with potential partners already booked. And there is a good chance he will be joined by a representative of a new and very exciting partner as well.

About The Author

Peter Munkholm
When John Nielsen won Le Mans 24-Hours in 1990, Peter was hooked with motorsports. He started sim racing on his uncles PC with Formula One Grand Prix by Geoff Crammond in 1992. Then progressed through IndyCar Simulator and IndyCar Simulator 2 on his Amiga 500+. When he bought his own PC in 1994 and a Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro Joystick he was already deeply in love with sim racing. His first skirmish with light modding was a Pernod Anis blue, white, and red skin for IndyCar Racing 2. He was hooked! But sim racing really kicked off for Peter with Sports Car GT in 1999. And with internet access and what felt like an ocean of mods. Sports Car GT and the F1 simulators with endurance racing mods swallowed most of his spare time. Then the GTR mod for F1 2003 arrived on the scene, from some Swedish dudes who called themselves SIMBIN. That would change everything! Right about then was also when Logitech steering wheels reach a state of useful. So when the GTR game officially released Peter bought a Formula Force GP wheel the same day, went home and founded the Danish Grand Touring League (DGTL). In 2006 the first LAN event was held. This became GTR24H in 2007. As they say. The rest is history!
