Blogging might be a bit light here over the next couple weeks as my home laptop is in for repairs. However, I wanted to make note of the Logis-Tech Tokyo 2006 exhibition that is coming up from September 12 to 15. It will be held at Tokyo Big Site and costs 1000 yen for entry. There will be approximately 312 logistics-related companies there. Below is the description offered by the event:
"LOGIS-TECH TOKYO is held once a every two years and is well known as one of the largest logistics exhibitions in Asia. Each edition is packed with more than 300 exhibiting companies and over 100,000 visitors. Leading distribution companies from Japan as well as enterprises from all over the world are on hand.
"A huge variety of goods are all exhibited under one roof, including: forklifts, storage systems, pallets, conveyors, casters, containers, third-party logistics products, and software. In addition, recent editions have seen local government groups present, looking to expand their commercial activities and find interested companies. The exhibition site is always a flurry of excited exhibitors and visitors."
I will be going at least one day to the event and plan to take several pictures as well as report on any interesting products or services that I haven't seen before or that may be unique to the Asia region. I am also hoping to take part in one of the forums if I can swing it. Whatever happens, I will be reporting on my experience here.
If anyone from outside Japan plans to make it, please let me know. I would enjoy meeting up!
