Japan DIY Industry Association
We are very glad to announce that the Japan DIY Industry Association will hold the JAPAN DIY HOMECENTER SHOW 2012 at Makuhari Messe for a period of three days from August 23 (Thursday) to 25 (Saturday), 2012.
The JAPAN DIY HOMECENTER SHOW, a comprehensive exhibition showcasing all lines of home-related products, is organized by the cooperation of three different sectors of manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers (do-it-yourself stores), in order to extensively promote the DIY industry and help people enjoy a more improved quality of life through the sound popularization of DIY home improvement. The Show has provided new and lucrative business opportunities for the exhibitors, and served also as an ideal place for publicity.
Last year, the effects of the Great East Japan Earthquake in March, an unprecedented disaster in the history of Japan, was an issue of big concern. Believing that DIY could contribute to the reconstruction, restoration and recovery of our country, we decided to hold the Show as planned. The 2011 Show was very successful with the participation of 364 exhibitors occupying 848 booth, attracting over 78,000 visitors.
The theme of the 2012 Show is "Make Your Dreams Your Power!" We endeavor to introduce a wide range of services and products that even go beyond the conventional DIY concept to suit the changes in the recent living style of people. We will also carry out proposals that will be of help for the recovery of and business stimulation for the disaster-affected areas.
Nowadays, do-it-yourself stores are all over the country and have become indispensable to people living in the area. Although, do-it-yourself stores are under severe economic circumstances, just like any other retail shops, we anticipate that people's interest toward do-it-yourself will be stronger than before as people have become more conscious of disaster prevention and energy saving, trying to live economically. To further promote and expand do-it-yourself stores, it is necessary to understand the needs of people correctly at the right time and to offer services which suit them.
During the 2011 show, we held many events to support the recovery of the areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake as well as various events to promote the expansion of the DIY market, such as the Japan DIY Product Competition which was a new competition integrating the New Product & Hit Product Competitions and the Environmentally Friendly Products Corner. We also presented the Exhibitor Presentation Corner where the exhibitors could promote their products to visitors themselves and a special exhibition called "Disney Home" These events and corners were all well received by the exhibitors and the visitors. This year, we intend to enhance the quality of those events and corners, and at the same time, make arrangements for all exhibitors to promote their products to the buyers and consumers.
We will present the well-reputed HOMECENTER TRADE II again this year. It is an event that allows the exhibitors to have business meetings directly with the buyers. As we are going to invite buyers from overseas for the first time this year, we will also present a corner to support companies trying to expand new business opportunities abroad. We are planning to hold various events and present additional new corners to attract more visitors this year. One of them is a corner for DIY involving electronic engineering and another is a corner for encouraging students to obtain the DIY Adviser Certificate.
This is only a brief explanation of the Show's outline and major events, but we would be grateful if you would consider participating in the JAPAN HOMECENTER SHOW 2012 as an exhibitor.
Thank you.
