“CEATEC is the one and only ‘comprehensive exhibition of digital innovation’in Japan, where those who support the digital industry and those who use digital technologies gather under one roof, aiming not only for the development of digital technology and its implementation in society, but also to enrich society by providing a forum where people can become familiar with digital technology, learn about it, and co-create with it. CEATEC 2024, now in its 25th year, not only aims to solve issues through technology that transcends the boundaries between industries, but also to disseminate innovations for the next era from Japan to the rest of the world. The organizer and co-sponsors look forward to the participation by frontrunner companies and organizations from all industries and business sectors.”
