Newly renamed JIAM 2024 OSAKA opens exhibitor applications

2023/09/08 News release

Organised by the Japan Sewing Machinery Manufacturers Association (JASMA), the fair is now accepting exhibitor applications for the 13th edition, to be held from 27 to 30 November, 2024 at INTEX OSAKA. In line with the sewing equipment industry’s expansion into the non-apparel sector, an increase in participation from suppliers of hardware, software and services is anticipated. Accordingly, the event has been renamed to the ‘Japan International Apparel & Non-Apparel Manufacturing Technology Trade Show’ to embody this broader scope.

As one of the world's leading sewing equipment trade fairs, JIAM is an international platform that brings together cutting-edge technologies, products, and services from domestic and overseas manufacturers.
The fair’s theme of ‘It all connects at JIAM - the forefront of technology and master craftsmanship’, underscores its role as a global platform for addressing issues such as soaring labour costs, labour shortages and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The previous edition in 2022 welcomed 150 exhibitors from 11 countries and regions as well as 10,452 visitors from 59 countries and regions, mainly from Bangladesh, India, Korea, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam.
These figures were achieved despite the COVID-19 pandemic, which significantly reduced the number of visitors from China. The 2024 edition is therefore expecting a return to pre-pandemic levels of participation, as one of the world's leading trade fairs for sewing equipment.
