Hear What Visitors Say about the Show

Seeing actual cases helped consider implementation and experienced engineers explained in detail about their products and solutions. We will attend Japan IT Week regularly and visit for all three days to meet more exhibitors.

We are impressed to witness the whole IT value chain at Japan IT Week Autumn. We are convinced Japan IT Week should be among the top list when looking for IT collaboration opportunities to cover Asia-Pacific market.

All the shows and seminars are organized very well. As a foreign visitor, communication with the exhibitors was not a problem since most of the exhibitors were fluent in English. I hope to visit the show in the near future.
