The two-day fair was a great success, gathering 106 exhibitors who showcased a comprehensive range of products and services, e.g. furniture, equipment, baby care goods, educational and learning toys, security systems and services, management systems, food services, business consultancy and staffing services for childcare facilities. It also welcomed 2,951 owners, managers and employees from the childcare facilities related industries throughout Japan as visitors.

A lot of positive feedback from participants revealed that the fair represents an ideal business platform for both visitors - seeking tools to promote the efficiency and diversification of the operation of their facilities - and exhibitors presenting their latest products and services towards these facilities. Mr. Ayumu Kawashima, Designer of C’s Product Planning Co Ltd, a producer of furniture and interior items for childcare facilities, commented: “There could be no other place than Child Edu & Care Japan, where we can meet so many owners and managers of childcare facilities at one place in two days. We have been busy since the opening of the show. We are satisfied that the visitors are very determined to gain information on our new products, and we had good discussions and negotiations with them. We are sure we can get good results out of those contacts.”
Child Edu & Care Japan not only offered visitors a showcase of the latest products and services, but also represents an ample platform for management know-how and the latest information about operations and childcare. This included seven ‘Management seminars’ and five ‘Educational seminars’, where industry experts shared their knowledge and information, greeted with great approval by visitors. The show also hosted a number of well-attended ‘Exhibitor presentations’.
Yasushi Kajiwara, Managing Director of Messe Frankfurt Japan Ltd, commented: “We are proud that the first edition of Child Edu & Care Japan was so successful, and took a step forward to serve as a unique platform for the country’s childcare industry. We will announce the date and place of the second edition of the fair soon.”
