Message from the Chairman

Taro Izawa
Japan Automatic Identification
Systems Association

Thank you for your continued valuable support and contribution to the activites of the Japan Automatic Identification Systems Association.
This year marks the 18th edition of the AUTO-ID & COMMUNICATION EXPO. Recognized at home and abroad as Japan’s only trade show dedicated to automatic identification technology and solutions, it has become a popular and highly anticipated event. When its predecessor, SCAN-TECH JAPAN, is also taken into account, this year is a milestone: the 30th edition of the event. We are truly grateful to everyone whose support and interest has made this possible.
The main goal of the Expo is to offer optimal solutions to issues faced by users through new products and technologies.
With “Key Technologies for the IoT” as its slogan, this year’s event will once again introduce cutting-edge ID technology that is indispensable for the IoT. In the zone exhibition area, divided into the Mobile & Wearable Zone, Imaging Zone, and Sensor Network Zone, visitors can experience first-hand the next stage in the evolution of automatic identification. In addition, there will be a panel exhibition corner entitled Understanding Automatic Identification through Examples, which will present various case studies of this technology’s application by exhibitors, providing attendees with practical examples of exhibiting companies’ cutting-edge automatic identification technology.
What’s more, various on-site activities will bring attendees up to date about the latest trends in automatic identification technology, including introductory talks on automatic identification, information on changes in the size of the automatic identification market, and the announcement of the 18th Auto-ID System Grand Prize winner.
In conjunction with the Expo, this year we will again hold an automatic identification seminar and present examples of cutting-edge applications and the latest technological trends.
For everyone in the field, the 18th AUTO-ID & COMMUNICATION EXPO is the biggest business opportunity of the year, and with the cooperation of all the participating companies and the collective efforts of the entire sector, we are confident that it will be a highly successful event.
We look forward to your participation in this year’s Expo.
