JIMTOF Fair Management Office (July 18, 2019) - The Japan Machine Tool Builders’ Association (Chairman: Yukio Iimura) and Tokyo Big Sight Inc. (President & CEO: Kiyotsugu Ishihara) will hold JIMTOF 2020: The 30th Japan International Machine Tool Fair at Tokyo Big Sight over six days from December 7 (Mon.) to 12 (Sat.), 2020. JIMTOF, one of the world’s largest international technology shows, brings together cutting-edge technologies and products.

The trade fair is a comprehensive showcase of items from across the manufacturing spectrum, from machine tools and peripherals of all kinds.

Main features of JIMTOF2020 (1) A compelling collection of the latest cutting-edge technologies and products: Enhancing JIMTOF’s pull as an international technology show JITMOF has long been a platform for product debuts, with more than half of all the exhibitors at every gathering using the opportunity to roll out their latest creations. For many exhibitors, JIMTOF—a biennial event—represents a major target on the development timeline. Considering its high profile in the industry, JIMTOF has won acclaim for giving exhibitors and attendees their first looks at new products and technologies. The JIMTOF Fair Management Office will continue to provide event-goers with as much information as possible on new products and technologies.

(2) Co-sponsored projects to meet the needs of the times: Hosting a variety of captivating co-sponsored events and feature exhibits In addition to hosting a variety of exhibitor booths, JIMTOF also features numerous co-sponsored organizer projects to enrich the event experience. The lineup for JIMTOF 2020 will include presentations on timely topics, feature exhibits where attendees can get a taste of the latest technology trends, and other initiatives to enhance JIMTOF’s presence as an international technology show. Organizers are also designing projects to give students—the leaders of tomorrow’s manufacturing industry—opportunities to develop their interests in and knowledge of the industry.

(3) Better business opportunities: Taking steps to energize discussions and negotiations JIMTOF draws large numbers of exhibitors—and big crowds, too. The last gathering, JIMTOF 2018, boasted a total of more than 150,000 unique attendees, a size that rivals those of the world’s leading international machine tool fairs. Aiming to forge stronger connections between exhibitors and attendees, the JIMTOF 2020 organizers will incorporate matching tools and optimize the business-negotiation environment to make the event as productive and constructive as possible for every participant.
