Venture Company Pavilion
 
The EDSFair has solicited wide-ranging opinions from key persons among prominent Japanese electronics and IT-related companies, as well as from visitors to EDSFair, and has closely analyzed this data to ascertain what kind of information visitors need. As a result of this work, we have for the first time invited overseas venture companies and university-based venture companies to participate in EDSFair 2006. One of our core policy initiatives is to reinforce system-level design and manufacturing design, and we have commenced specific activities accordingly.

Consistent with this theme, the Venture Company Pavilion, a special section for venture companies at EDSFair 2006, will be held for the first time. This move is designed to provide overseas venture companies having neither branch office nor subsidiary in Japan with access to business opportunities here. When trying to generate business in the unfamiliar Japanese market, new venture companies, especially those from overseas, face various barriers in terms of business efficiency, cost benefits and risk management. Our plan in inviting these companies is to help them overcome such hurdles and set up a business presence in the swiftest possible manner. Another aim is to quickly deliver to Japanese design developers new information that normally would be difficult for them to obtain. We will work hard to ensure the success of the Venture Company Pavilion, which represents a major highlight in the EDSFair 2006 planning process.

 
Feature of the Venture Company Pavilion
 

1. Low cost
For regular exhibitors at EDSFair, the total minimum cost is ¥384,300, which covers ¥294,000 for the smallest booth space (2.97 m x 2.97 m), plus ¥90,300 for rental booth and other equipment. For exhibitors at the Venture Company Pavilion, however, the minimum cost is only ¥200,000, which covers both minimum booth space (2.2 m x 2.0 m) and rental costs.

2. High added value
-In addition to exhibiting space, the corner will feature a Presentation Stage, which can be used to highlight participating companies' technologies and products to a large audience, and also encourage visitors to drop by their booths.
-A special Communication Area, with tables and chairs, will be set aside within the Pavilion. Located close to the booths, this area can be used for effective business discussions with visitors.
-Interpreters will be on hand at the Pavilion. Feel free to use their services when communicating with visitors who are not well-versed in English.
-The EDSFair Office will actively publicize the corner to prominent Japanese media organizations and encourage them to set up interviews with exhibitors. We aim to help maintain the visibility of exhibitors, not only during the event, but afterwards as well. All this is included in the ¥200,000 participation price.

These include sending information about your company to our mailing list of EDSFair visitors; posting your company's banner on the EDSFair website; placing your company's advertisements in the official Guidebook and Event Hall Layout Map; and arranging participation in exhibitor seminars.
