Where: INTEX Osaka

The Osaka Convention & Tourism Bureau strives to bring more events to Osaka that align with the goals of the upcoming Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai. We are official supporters of the Future Monodzukuri International Expo, one such international trade fair that helps contribute to Expo 2025’s theme of “Designing Future Society for our Lives.” We are helping support the event so that it continues to run in future years as well, contributing to the long-lasting impact and legacy that Expo 2025 will bring to Osaka.


What is monodzukuri?

Literally translated into "the making of things," monodzukuri or monozukuri is a word that incorporates the Japanese principles of industry, innovation, and pride in one's work. Monozukuri is used when describing the processes involved in technology and manufacturing, but the word itself conveys the sense of craftsmanship and pride that Japanese businesses and innovators take in their products.

What is Future Monodzukuri International Expo 2023?

Under the theme of showcasing technology that designs future society, this event brings together the technologies and products that seek to solve the most pressing industrial issues and spearhead new solutions. This event will be held both in-person and online and is the first event to be held in collaboration with the Japan Association of the 2025 World Exposition. By collaborating with Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, this event will be an example of the innovation that the Expo sparks, and will showcase Japanese industrial achievements on a global stage.

Exhibiting organizations include those who will showcase craftmanship, robotics, environmental technology, cutting-edge technology, and disaster preparedness. A special area at the event will include a booth exhibiting solutions that address some of modern society's biggest issues, aligning with the goals of Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai.
At the event this year, the Osaka Convention & Tourism Bureau is exhibiting at a booth alongside the city of Osaka, the Osaka Business Development Agency, and the Osaka Research Institution of Industrial Science and Technology. We will have an area set up to discuss all things related to Japan and Osaka’s industries, so stop on by!
