For more than two years the tradeshow the most efficient in the field of tools, DIY and its derivatives, which was held at Taïwan in October suffers the relentless lockdown of its border due to the Covid which continues to plague, even if the daily cases seem to be easing. What about October? Very clever who can predict what the situation will be. The virus therefore remains the essential question mark for a booming show which has not been able to welcome any visitors for almost three years.
