MESSE NAGOYA 2017 official website

Message from the Executive Committee

We offer the utmost support for achieving sound business results.

MESSE NAGOYA is a comprehensive international exhibition that cuts across industrial and business boundaries to get the word out broadly both within Japan and overseas on the products and services of our exhibitors, while also striving to help them expand sales channels and enhance personal connections.
In 2016, we brought it to a successful conclusion with a record-high 1,409 exhibiting companies and organizations and as many as 64,792 visitors. We believe that many of the participants who set up displays have experienced sound business results.
Thanks to all of you, this year marks the 12th MESSE NAGOYA and we shall display all our specialty products, technologies and services in one venue, thus hoping to be able to contribute to your fruitful achievement in more ways than one.
We cordially await your proactive exhibition and participation in this event.
