 The Japan International Welding Show 2014 was held at the Tokyo Big Sight from April 23 to 26, 2014. The organizers announced that 95,873 people attended the show, including 5,013 from overseas. While the size of the event was reduced from three halls in 2010 to two halls this year, the venue was packed with visitors, reflecting recent strong corporate performance. Although smaller in scale than 2010, KOBELCO also gave welding system demonstrations and exhibited industry-specific welding methods and materials for structures.The photos below show our exhibition.

 On the final day of the exhibition, a welding technique contest planned by the organizers was put on for high school students. Planning began by inviting the participation of high schools with a welding curriculum, and culminating in the national final at which the successful teams from the regional qualifiers competed. The teams were able to request their preferred welding material, which KOBELCO provided for the contest in addition to the trophy and commemorative goods such as hats.
