The Japan DIY Industry Association will be hosting Japan DIY Homecenter Show 2017 at the International Exhibition Hall in Makuhari Messe from Aug 24-26.
The show, which will be held this year for the 53rd time, is now one of the largest comprehensive lifestyle-related exhibitions in Japan and aims to help popularize and raise awareness of the sound practice of DIY, contributing to the over all development of the home-improvement center industry and to a richer lifestyle for people living in Japan through cooperation between manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers of DIY-related products and materials, bringing together a wide range of products and services under one roof, and leading to the creation of vibrant business opportunities, the exchange of ideas, and improved publicity for the industry vis-a-vis general consumers.
The theme of this years show is Experience and Feel DIY! Home Improvement Centers: Workshops of the Future. This theme expresses a desire for visitors to experience making high value added things through experiences and feelings of concepts, stories and user experiences of making things, in addition to simple handcrafts.
There will be three large theme zones. The Shining DIY Women zone supports the DIY efforts of women. This zone is obtaining a great deal of media attention and is also extremely popular among the exhibition visitors every year. Moreover, there will be the Children and Future Zones. This will target the children and young people in their 20s with content that is expected to become popular in the future under the theme of next-generation DIY. There will also be the Men's Workshop Zone. This will target adult men.
In addition, as in previous years, the Japan DIY Product Competition will together introduce and exhibit a range of new products, hit products, and environmentally-friendly products from various exhibitors, from which excellent products are selected for awards through an assessment by expert judges and a popularity vote among our visitors.
