Apple said, "This is the first time we have hosted an art-led Today at Apple lecture in Taiwan. There will be world-class creators, including local Taiwanese artists. The first is a six-week Stage for Creativity series. It will be officially launched on the opening day, when the singer Eve Ali will perform."
According to Apple, the Apple Xinyi A13 retail store has 155 employees, half of whom are from other retail stores in the region, and the employees speak 10 languages in total. The Apple Xinyi A13 retail store is also the second Apple Store retail store opened in Taiwan. The Apple Taipei 101 retail store opened two years ago has already received nearly 4 million users.
The opening of the Apple Xinyi A13 retail store is at 10 am on June 15th, when Deirdre O'Brien, the new retail director of Apple's new appointment, is likely to attend the opening event.
