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.
MESSE NAGOYA has been held for ten years in succession.
In 2015, we brought it to a successful conclusion with a record-high 1,346 exhibiting companies and organizations and a great many visitors at 63,802 people. We believe that the many participants who set up displays have experienced sound business results.
Thanks to all of you, this year marks the 11th MESSE NAGOYA and we shall endeavor to organize many more, in times to come.
We are hoping to be able to contribute to your fruitful achievement at MESSE NAGOYA and cordially await your proactive exhibition and participation in this event.
