At this year's CEATEC JAPAN, while overcoming difficulties such as the earthquake and electricity issues, Japan's IT and electronic industries will make an appeal to the world about Japan's potential as it aims for reconstruction. Together with this, we believe CEATEC JAPAN will be a great opportunity to demonstrate the vitality of the IT and electronics industries that are making great progress beyond the current difficult situation.
CEATEC Japan is Asia's largest comprehensive exhibition in fields such as images, information and communications. This exhibition will see the lead that the IT and electronics industries have in realizing a plentiful and low-carbon society conveyed widely, both at home and abroad.
This year, in addition to the exhibition's theme of "Smart Innovation - Cutting edge technologies to create the future," we are running "Safe, Secure and Smart Society Proposed by the IT and Electronics Industries" as our promotion slogan. The plan is to hold a lively exhibition and conference and during the period of the event we expect 200,000 visitors.
