What are the dates and times of the exhibition?
The exhibition will be held from Tuesday, October 4 to Friday, October 7, from 10 AM to 5 PM.


What time do you open and close for admission/ticketing?
Registration counter for admission opens at 9:30 a.m., and doors open at 10:00 a.m. In the afternoon, the registration counter is open until 4:50 p.m.
however because the venue closes at 5:00 p.m, it is best to arrive early to give yourself enough time to look at the exhibits.
Can you be re-admitted to the venue?
You may enter the venue as many times as you like as long as you have your admission pass.


I registered prior to last year's exhibition, do I need to register again for this year's exhibition?
CEATECT JAPAN requires visitor registration every year.
Please go to Pre-registration Site.
Is it possible to visit the exhibition on the day without pre-registering?
Yes it is, but the entrance fee will be JPY1000. Therefore we recommend pre-registering online.
Is it possible for me to use only a single name and e-mail address to pre-register for more than one person?
The CEATEC JAPAN pre-registration system requires that all visitors are pre-registered individually so the name and e-mail address of each visitor is necessary.
Is it necessary to print out the admission pass and take it to the exhibition?
Yes, please print out the pass and bring it to the venue. You will be given a plastic holder on the day. Please put the pass in the holder before entering the venue.

Exhibitor Booth

What can I do if I don't want to carry catalogs and other materials distributed by exhibitors back from the venue?
A delivery service ("takkyubin") will be available at the venue to post materials to your home or hotel. Please check the venue map for the location of the Delivery Counter.
Can I photograph (with a camera or phone) or video products exhibited at the venue?

Will it be possible to purchase products from exhibitors at the venue?
Exhibitors' products will not be available for direct purchase at the venue.


How can I audit a conference?
Reservations for conferences can be made from the Pre-registration Site. We recommend early booking, as we will close accepting reservations when a session reaches its maximum occupancy.
What should I do if a session I would like to audit is already full?
Same-day tickets may be available if seats open due to a cancellation.
Please go directly to the venue where the conference will be held.
