Special Exhibit by the Organizers

Connected The present and future of connected industries

The exhibit on the present and future of connected industries introduces current use cases within connected industries that are aiming to create new values by connecting multiple manufacturing sites. The exhibit also forecasts a near future built upon these connected industries.
Use cases are based on topics such as suppliers, factories and distributions within value chains and will be featured in videos and on exhibit panels.

Project support: Industrial Value Chain Initiative

Joint Project by the Three Organizing Industrial Associations

The future envisioned by the three organizing industrial associations

The three organizing industrial associations (JEMA, NECA, JEMIMA) will hold a panel discussion on the topic of “envisioning the future of MONODZUKURI, brought about by electrical machinery, measurement and control, and the possibilities of 5G.”
Panels from each industrial association will present concrete ideas and debate the future outlook of MONODZUKURI, while also discussing the highly anticipated possibilities of 5G with the arrival of the local 5G.

<Panel discussion>

Date and time: November 27 (Wed.) 12:30 – 14:00
Location: Conference Tower 1F, Reception Hall B

<Panel exhibit>

In addition, a panel exhibit will be set up in the Atrium, featuring details of the panel discussion and the latest activities of each industrial association.

Core-, Small- and Medium-Manufacturing IoT Park

The Core-, Small- and Medium-Manufacturing IoT Park will feature use cases that can utilize IoT to achieve greater MONODZUKURI developments in core-, small- and medium-manufacturing, which supports the manufacturing industry in Japan. Eleven companies, each with unique cases, will participate in this special exhibit in three categories: IoT device, platform and AI. In addition, the adjacent Atrium Stage will host presentations every day by different exhibitors on their cases.
