The Japan International Welding Show 2018 to be Held in Tokyo Next April is Set to be Bigger than Ever

We are currently accepting applications to exhibit, so please make your application as soon as possible.
* Applications will close once all booths are booked.

This will be the 25th Japan International Welding Show (JIWS) since the inaugural event held in 1969. Over a history of 49 years, JIWS has been held every two years, alternating between Tokyo and Osaka. Throughout this time, the show has promoted technological innovation in accordance to the historical background of the time and it has been consistently playing a leading role in addressing the demands and desires of the welding industry.
The JIWS has become a major event featuring the highly concentrated roll-out of every type of welding-related technology, products, and information in a wide range of fields: from welding and cutting, laser processing, non-destructive testing (NDT), and thermal spraying, to metal laminate formation, CFRP process technology, and proposals for IoT applications.
The biggest features of JIWS, in addition to the strategic unveiling of new products by manufacturers, are a wealth of demonstrations and exhibitions, strong support from end users, the fact that close to half of all visitors are engineers, an enhanced focus on “trade show” functions, associated events both in Japan and overseas to effectively attract strong participation in the show, and a high level of visitor satisfaction.
Some of the highlights of JIWS 2018 will be the “5 Big Forums” that since the last time have featured new “smart processes”, Trend Seminars with presentations conducted by exhibitors and the Skills Transfer Plaza. Along with these popular elements of JIWS, the “trade show” function of the event will be strengthened even further. We will also introduce a matching system to match up exhibitors and visitors before the show, as part of our effort to “establish a welding business platform” by mobilizing users and dealers both in Japan and overseas through Welding Promenade, a quarterly magazine issued for an international readership.
Over the years, as JIWS has kept the world informed of the latest developments in Japanese welding technology, it has also widely explained the importance and value of welding to social infrastructure and industrial products. Even as it is highly acclaimed for its main role as a technology show, JIWS also plays the role of a “trade show.” It is a unique forum that comprehensively addresses the needs of the welding industry.
As all this demonstrates, JIWS proudly brings together the best in the world of welding from all over Asia by assembling the world’s most distinguished manufacturers and exhibiting world-leading, state-of-the-art technology under one roof. In this way, we are establishing JIWS as a “hub exhibition” for welding in Asia that widely and compellingly draws the top welding-related product manufacturers from around Asia and the rest of the world.
Note that the exhibition booth plan, exhibitor manual, and applications for the various exhibitor services on offer are scheduled for release around mid-December.
