The largest packaging show in Asia in both the number of exhibitors and visitors, TOKYO PACK is the premier packaging exhibition focusing on the package.
Launched in 1966 and owned and operated directly by the Japan Packaging Institute (JPI), the biennial (every two years) exhibition will feature more than 2,600 booths representing 600 companies in the 23,000m2 exhibition space, and is expected to attract more than 70,000 visitors from inside Japan and overseas.
With Japan being one of the most advanced packaging markets in Asia and the world, TOKYO PACK is the place to be at to see the latest state-of-the-art packaging solutions, network with major industry players from around the globe, and gain business opportunities in the booming Asian market.
Foreigners visiting the exhibition need not worry about negotiating the business-language and cultural barrier: the organizer is offering a range of services including a system that will help visitors easily identify exhibitor booths where business discussions can comfortably take place in English, and a series of seminars explaining the Japanese packaging market and industry and optional city tours of retail formats.
During TOKYO PACK 2014, visitors can also look forward to a number of special exhibits, including:
