Show Director, Yoichiro Ayabe is confident that World Smart Energy Week Osaka will provide further support in expanding smart/renewable energy business throughout Japan:
"As there are numerous projects held in the region and many firms originating from western Japan, the market potential in western Japan is large. Evidently, the overall satisfaction of participants was very high last year as both Japanese and overseas participants were able to make new clients. We are confident that World Smart Energy Week Osaka will become established as another key industry show to seek new business and connections in Japan."

Both Osaka and Tokyo editions of World Smart Energy Week is expected to expand and the majority of the booth space for both shows are selling out fast.
