The producer of press and business events in the United States and Europe today announced an agreement with the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA), the Communications and Information Network Association of Japan (CIAJ) and the Computer Software Association of Japan (CSAJ) to organize product demonstrations, executive interviews, booth tours, company visits, travel logistics and other activities for journalists traveling to Japan from the United States and Europe to cover CEATEC JAPAN 2011, one of Asia's largest consumer electronics and technology tradeshows.

ShowStoppers and CEATEC JAPAN are also inviting correspondents from the US and Europe based in Japan to participate in the press activities.

"The greatest leaps forward come at times of great crisis," said Takashi Ohyama, director for the CEATEC Japan Management Office at the Japan Electronics Show Association (JESA). "We are working with ShowStoppers to help communicate a message to the world of recovery and reconstruction after the Great East Japan Earthquake."

"We believe it's important to help journalists around the world track the resilience of Japan, the creativity and craftsmanship of its people, and the vitality of its consumer electronics, technology and manufacturing industries," said Steve Leon, partner, ShowStoppers.


CEATEC JAPAN takes place 4-8 October at the Makuhari Messe in Tokyo. This year's show focuses on "cutting-edge technologies to create the future" for a "safe, secure, smart low-carbon society." Exhibits feature renewable energy, smart communities, robotics, digital products and services for home and business, electronic components and devices, and previews of the technologies and products "of tomorrow that will form the backbone of manufacturing in Japan."

CEATEC JAPAN is collaborating with the 42nd Tokyo Motor Show 2011. "We hold a deep conviction that the collaboration of these two shows is a statement of renewal for two great industries in Japan," said Ohyama.
