Beneath all the glamour, what’s behind all the hip happenings at BIOSTAR Booth?
Firstly, Thank You For Visiting Us!
As many of you have known, this year BIOSTAR has gone with the racing-themed booth in line with our latest flagship RACING Series Motherboards, jam-packed with action and racing!
Thank you to each and everyone of our visitors we believe that all our visitors had a great time experiencing our racing machines backed with BIOSTAR’s latest and highest quality motherboards and graphic cards, as well as our numerous stage activities and giveaway items!
The BIOSTAR Booth
Before Prep Day
What’s an exhibition without a booth? The setting up of the booth happens 5 days before the exhibition (in this year’s case, it was 26 May-30 May). One of our staff members went down on 26 May to collect our exhibitors’ passes and also check how things are going at the actual hall!
I’m sure we’ve posted enough photos/LIVE streaming of our booth via various platform such as our Facebook pages so let’s look at how things were BEFORE it became what we saw when the exhibition started~
So here we have the overall look of the booth:
A closer look at the big screen TV and where our racing machines will be at:
Moving onto the static exhibits, here we have where the motherboards and graphic cards will be exhibited:

And now our 30 years timeline:
The side view from where the IPC section is:
The IPC section:
Certainly doesn’t look very inviting, does it?
But can you believe that all these were put together in only a few hours? AMAZING! Of course there are still a lot of refinement work to do, but did you know that at the point when our colleague sent these pictures, you guys can’t imagine the excitement back in the office as we finally catch a glimpse of our booth!
Rehearsal and Prep Day
Finally the day has come – oh the dreaded prep day. On the day before the first day (30th May), the set-up team went all the way to Nangang Exhibition Hall 4F to perform final checks on the booth, as well as to load things up into our booth!
Look at the numerous boxes here to be moved to Nangang Exhibition Hall all the way from the Hsin Tien District! And if you think that this is little, that’s coz we didn’t take a photo when more boxes were added onto the pile just moments after this photo was taken since we had to start moving the boxes down to the lorry.
So 2 of our colleagues went on with the lorry to Nangang Exhibition Hall first with most of our materials where they started moving in some of the things into the small storeroom we have.
I still wonder how did we manage to stuff everything inside that place…
Definitely too small and too squeezy! We gotta do something about this next year since we can’t squeeze more than 2 people into that storeroom!
Transporting our machines
Meanwhile back at the office, we have 4 people getting ready to move out from the office and onto the battlefield with our 3 racing machines in tow.
Do you recognise these machines? They’re practically one of the main highlights of our entire booth!
And they’re moving these babies into the car!
And they’re off to Nangang Exhibition Hall!
Gotta have some people to support those fragile babies during the drive to the exhibition hall right?
First Actual Visit?
Moving on, we drove into the exhibition hall via the back entrance and HEY that’s our booth behind Lengda!
Check out BIOSTAR’s (almost-completed) booth!
And now, check out the front with our 3 machines:
Granted, this wasn’t what you guys REALLY saw on those exhibition days when you visited. But HEY, I thought it looked pretty neat!
The empty white boxes probably looks really weird now since there’s nothing inside! Well, for now at least! Maybe this is what you guys will find more familiar?
With the motherboards and graphic cards in place, this is certainly looking more like a proper booth isn’t it? 😉
But of course there’s still plenty of work to do…
In between our work, our emcee, showgirls and promotion girls arrived on “set” for their familiarisation and rehearsal.
And here we have them trying the racing machines for the very first time since they will need to teach the members of the public how to operate it!
Look at how seriously they’re competing against each other!
After and during the rehearsals, the action never stopped and everyone tried their best to finish things quickly so we could go home and rest. After all that moving and transporting of things, the team was so tired and worn-out already. How were we supposed to withstand the next 5 days?!?
After everything was FINALLY done, we were finally allowed to go home. The long-awaited, oh-so-glorious home~ Did I mention that it was extremely loud (due to all the drilling and building works), dusty and HOT? The entire exhibition hall was hot and stuffy since the aircon wasn’t on. Imagine our horror and sweatiness that day…
The Actual 5 Days
The long awaited first day has arrived and the staff members got up bright and early to meet at Nangang Exhibition Hall at BIOSTAR’s booth for last minute works and briefings.
When we got to the 4th floor, we were so surprised to see such long queues to the entrance!
SO. MANY. PEOPLE.
Thankfully there wasn’t too much to do in the morning since we pretty much did everything the day before so that’s a good start! 😀
And we have the ladies busy with their makeup and once they’re done…
Now we’re all up and ready to go!!
Check out our first group of visitors! 🙂
BIOSTAR Show Time!
Our Promotion Girls
BIOSTAR has our own share of daily stage activities too! You may have caught our promotion girls walking around the arena giving out giveaway items when you check in on Facebook or to invite you guys to our booth!
Each BIOSTAR Show Time opens with our eloquent emcee, Stephanie, giving out prizes to all our visitors who visit us during the live shows!
Following which, we have a special showcase by our showgirls with our latest products – our latest Mini-PC, our latest RACING Series Motherboards, our Graphic Cards and IPC Mobile-POS Tablet, coupled with audience engagement by Stephanie!
First up, we have our showgirl with our Mini-PC. At 0.3L, it is the smallest and lightest that you can find in the world!
Next up we have our other showgirl with our new RACING Z170GT7 Motherboard!
Then, we have our Graphic Card.
Last but not least, the IPC Mobile-POS System Tablet!
After the introduction of our latest products, we move into the gaming segment of our stage activities and audience members have a chance to compete against our showgirl of choice in a race to win attractive prizes.
At the end of each racing session, Stephanie will be giving out the prizes to the winners AND our guests who stayed with us throughout our activity~
LoL LIVE Competition
On 2-3 June, BIOSTAR specially invited an all-female professional VG Team to compete in a LIVE League of Legends (LoL) competition LIVE on BIOSTAR Stage! What made it even more awesome is that these ladies compete on an international scale and has been crowned the WORLD CHAMPIONS before! How cool is that?
It was definitely 2 really exciting matches that you wouldn’t want to miss!
As an appreciation to everyone who checked out our exciting activities, we gave out special BIOSTAR keyboard and mouses to our loyal supporters!
Look at one lucky fan we have here!
For those who didn’t manage to visit us, no worries since we had various LIVE Broadcasts on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/BiostarHQ/
For those who are wondering, the game we were playing on our racing machines was GRID AUTOSPORT!
The machines behind the chairs is our new BIOSTAR RACING Z170GT7 Motherboard, coupled with our GeForce GTX 960, 950 and 750Ti respectively.
Don’t you agree that they were awesome? It certainly gave the staff good times and we hope you had fun too!
Additionally, BIOSTAR would like to extend our gratitude to Apacer and Thermaltake for providing us with their memory modules and chassis, keyboard and mouse respectively.

Last But Not Least, A Huge Thank You to all Staff
Finally, we shouldn’t forget our colleagues who have laboured tirelessly through the planning stages and the 5 tiring days at the exhibition. For everything that happens, we shouldn’t forget that there is a dedicated team of people behind it. Though tiring, needless to say it was a fulfilling journey.
Featuring the faces of the Motherboard Division below! Don’t you think everyone here looks really happy and accomplished?
The sales team looking good~
And the IPC Division!
On this note, we’d like to show some of the BTS photos of staff members during over the 5 days!
