TCT Japan to launch in early 2019

February 15, 2018

JTB Communication Design Inc., Tokyo, Japan, and TCT Group owner Rapid News Publications Ltd, Chester, UK, have formed a partnership to jointly organise and develop JCD’s 3D Printing Japan event. The event will now be renamed TCT Japan.

The fourth 3D Printing Japan ran from February 14-16 in 2018. The conference is reported to have established itself as a leading event for the Japanese 3D printing industry. With the rebranding to TCT Japan, the event will join a number of events under the group name, including TCT Show (UK), TCT Asia and the recently-announced TCT Korea.

Duncan Wood, Chief Executive of Rapid News Publications Ltd, stated, “We are excited to be bringing the TCT brand to Japan. This partnership fits with our mission of accelerating design-to-manufacturing innovation worldwide, and we recognise the demand in Japan for intelligence and information about these exciting technologies.”

“We are pleased to welcome Rapid News as our partner for the new TCT Japan event,” added Takahiro Matsui, Director, JCD. “Our experience of organising 3D Printing Japan over the last four years alongside the strength of the TCT portfolio and network gives us a superb platform to create a high-quality business matching event for both exhibitors and visitors in Japanese market.”

TCT Japan will take place for the first time under its new branding at Tokyo Big Sight, January 30 to February 1, 2019.
