The theme for CEATEC JAPAN 2018, which is a global showcase for Japan’s growth strategies and vision of the future known as Society 5.0, was “Connecting Society, Co-Creating the Future”. Overcoming existing barriers by effectively integrating policies, industries and technologies, this CPS/IoT exhibition has earned well-deserved recognition moving toward its upcoming 20th anniversary as the ultimate forum for the co-creation of ultra-smart communities of the future where IoT, robots and AI will all play important roles. Next year, in celebrating its 20th anniversary, CEATEC JAPAN will strive to increase participation by an even larger number of industries and businesses to help accelerate the pace of innovation for shaping future societies and make “Connecting Society, Co-Creating the Future” a reality. CEATEC JAPAN 2019 will be held at Makuhari Messe for four days: Tuesday Oct. 15th to Friday Oct. 18th.
