CEATEC JAPAN celebrates its 19th anniversary this year. In announcing our transformation from a consumer electronics show in 2016, we made a firm commitment to become a comprehensive CPS/IoT exhibition, a driving force for social transformation. CEATEC JAPAN 2018 will be a global showcase for Japan’s growth strategies and Society 5.0, our vision of a super-smart community of the future in which IoT, robots and AI will all play important roles. As a forum for co-creation, CEATEC JAPAN 2018 is breaking down barriers by connecting policies, industries and technologies.
This year’s exhibition theme is “Connecting Society, Co-Creating the Future”, continuing on from 2016. In addition to IT and electronics, there will be finance, travel, toys, housing, machine tools, cars, construction & construction machinery, communications, agriculture and healthcare, among others. As many as 345 companies and organizations will be exhibiting for the first time, and visitors will be able to see a number of innovative new approaches to collaboration and co-creation that transcend industry barriers. Also new is the Co-Creation Park, designed to further strengthen global collaboration with the participation of many overseas exhibitors – 206 foreign companies/organizations from 19 countries, including startups and cutting-edge enterprises from the US, UK, France and India.
CEATEC JAPAN 2018 will be hosting a total of 725 companies/organizations, and offering more than 150 conferences. It will thus facilitate the creation of diverse new connections to help realize Society 5.0. Over the four days on which CEATEC JAPAN 2018 is held, 160,000 visitors are expected to experience Japan of the future.
