CEATEC, Japan’s premier information technology and electronics fair, will be held from Oct. 5-9 in Chiba with the focus on competition between products using 3-D technology.

The fair at the Makuhari Messe convention center will also showcase the next-generation smart grid power transmission network, which uses information technology.

They expect more than 200,000 people to visit this year’s show, surpassing last year’s roughly 150,000, a turnout lower than the previous year because of the global economic downturn and the impact of typhoons.

One way is by convening at the same venue a gathering of the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers where discussions will touch on topics that include cloud computing.

CEATEC, which stands for Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies, has been held every year since 2000.
