The Show Director, Yoichiro Ayabe is confident that World Smart Energy Week
Osaka with the Tokyo edition will provide further support in
expanding smart and renewable energy business throughout Japan and the
world.

"As there are many smart/renewable energy firms and projects originating
from western Japan, there is a large and untouched market waiting
to be explored through World Smart Energy Week Osaka. With our experience
and connections with the Tokyo show, we are confident that
World Smart Energy Week Osaka will become established as another key
industry trade show to seek new business opportunities and
connections in Japan."

He added "There were many visitors at last year's Osaka show who had not yet
participated in the Tokyo edition and overall satisfaction
of both Japanese and overseas exhibitors from last year were very high as
they were able to meet new quality customers especially from
western Japan. Numerous exhibitors have given us positive feedback about how
they found new business leads through the show.
We think this is the major factor causing the size of the show to double
this year. We will endure our efforts in putting together an even
more successful show this year and hope industry professionals will be able
to utilise both shows to benefit their future business."

Show Management has been receiving overwhelming numbers of inquiries for
exhibiting and booth space for both World Smart Energy Week Osaka 2014
and World Smart Energy Week 2015. Booths are selling out fast and the
majority of the space has been filled from an early stage.

With the ongoing boom of the Japanese market, both Osaka and Tokyo editions
of World Smart Energy Week is expected to continue its expansion.

The show will be a great gateway to find new business in Japan and a firm
platform to catch insights of the market and make connections with
other industry experts from across the globe.
