The Suwa Region in Nagano Prefecture has grown into a center of suppliers with high-precision technologies in Japan providing computer and electronic components, automotive parts, semiconductor processing equipment, optical devices etc. for leading manufacturers. This area is currently home to manufacturing bases for Kyocera (Yashika) and Olympus, and head offices for Seiko Epson and Nidec Sankyo (formerly Sankyo Seiki), among others. A total of more than 2,000 small- to medium-sized manufacturers form a broad-based supporting industry in the area.

This fair began in 2002 as a community-based trade show for corporations within the area to share processing technologies and exchange information. In recent years, for the purpose of doing business with the Suwa area’s small and medium-sized enterprises, many foreign companies and foreign delegations will visit the exhibition (e.g., Germany, Swiss Confederation, China, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, etc.).

Travel expenses for invited attendees will be covered by JETRO based on regulations. For more information, email
