The Photo Imaging Expo 2008, billed as the largest photo trade fair in Asia, takes place on March 19 to 22 at the Tokyo International Exhibition Center.
This yearâ€™s theme is â€œExperience It Yourself! The Power of Photos, The Future of Imaging.â€ Thatâ€™s what it says there, above, in Japanese characters.
PIE2008 is expected to draw more than 120,000 visitors and more than 770 corporate exhibitors from the Pacific Rim, Europe and North America.
â€œWeâ€™ve moved PIE2008 to more spacious facilities within Tokyoâ€™s â€˜Big Sightâ€™ Center â€“ East Hall 4-6 â€“ because weâ€™ve registered an unprecedented number of exhibitors from around the world,â€ said Takashi Ishihara of Fuji Sankei Business i, the showâ€™s management firm.
