Converting Technology Exhibition 2019

Cross-border, Cross-industry

As a central part of manufacturing, converting technologies impact the quality of all products, from food and medical packaging, to films and components in the electronics field and automotive battery materials.
Now that we have entered the era of IoT, the diversification and increased complexity of technological innovation and market needs are accelerating. Likewise, there is no guarantee that today’s industry leaders will continue to maintain their position in the future, as has been shown by the successful entry of Google and Baidu into the automotive industry, These changes are not in the future, but occurring before our very eyes.

We, however, see these upheavals in society as business opportunity.
Thus it is our hope to continuously track this changing world as a location to work with you in contemplating new ways of manufacturing that cross borders and industries, and in creating and disseminating new value.
Join us and broadcast the value you create through manufacturing―your very DNA―from Tokyo to the world.
