Converting Technology Exhibition 2020

Cross-border, Cross-industry

In today’s world of constant change and increasingly diverse, complex needs, development must necessarily track market demands, but it must also respond to the demand for the efficient manufacturing technologies required by manufacturers.

High-speed, broadband 5G communication is enabling a society in which automobiles, home appliances, industrial robots, and everything else is connected by the internet.

Through the meeting of technologies in a way that departs from the concept of “industry,” we aim to serve as a location that delivers the seeds of innovation for manufacturing-critical converting equipment and technologies, high-added-value materials, product design, and design and development solutions for today’s challenges.

In direct response to today’s ability to instantly communicate without ever meeting, we provide a location for deeply-linked, face-to-face “encounters” that straddle the boundary of industry.
