Comments from Exhibitors

At each JAPAN PACK exhibition, we ask exhibitors to answer a questionnaire about the event. The following are data tabulated around three themes and examples of favorable responses we received from exhibitors.

About business meetings with visitors

A large percentage of the people who come to JAPAN PACK are from the food industry, and the composition of the visitors is different from exhibitions focused on food machinery. Therefore, one of the advantages of JAPAN PACK is being able to acquire new customers. We have been exhibiting at this event for a long time, but I can see that the number of visitors has been rising steadily over the years. Right now, an issue we have at our company is proposing automated lines that work together with packaging machines to further improve productivity. We are thinking about exhibiting at a larger booth at the next event so that we can bring our message to a larger number of people.

New product announcements lead to fruitful business meetings

By having demonstrations and presentations when announcing new products, we can attract customers very effectively. We were able to present our new products to customers from various industries. Not only did we have business discussions at our booth, some customers placed orders on the spot. One reason for this is that many of the visitors are in positions where they have the authority to make decisions about installing new equipment. Furthermore, at the JAPAN PACK AWARDS where new products compete against each other, the product that receives the grand prize attracts a great deal of attention from customers and the press. We are actually making a major effort to develop products that are worthy of the grand prize.

About business meetings between exhibitors

Our company deals in packaging-related machinery. When we exhibited at JAPAN PACK, another exhibitor that was a packaging-related company expressed their intention to build a packaging line incorporating our products. This opened up a new sales channel and expanded the market for us. People may think that other exhibitors are competitors. However, JAPAN PACK is a comprehensive exhibition where various connections are built, opening up new possibilities. We discover new applications for our products and technologies and find products and technologies from other companies that can help improve our own products, which is a major appeal of JAPAN PACK.
