Deep Tech Canada participated in a trade mission to Tokyo, Japan and Seoul, Korea. Nano tech Japan is one of the largest technology conferences and exhibitions in the world with over 30,000 visitors, 481 exhibitors from 32 different countries. We brought Deep Tech Canada members to the Canadian pavilion for business to business meetings and demonstrations.
Monday morning was spent at the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo. The day started with welcoming remarks from Canadian Trade Commissioners and Deep Tech Canada Executive Director, Janice Warkentin. Each of the delegates then had the opportunity to present a brief overview of their organization. This was followed by trade commissioners and provincial officers providing information on their sector and provincial priorities. The group then had the opportunity to hear presentations from Dai Nippon Printing and Edge of Innovation and networked over a lunch sponsored by Nano Ontario.
The afternoon consisted of two site visits, one to Resonac and the other to FujiFilm Open Innovation Hub. Both visits were a great opportunity to learn about current and future projects and potential collaboration opportunities. The day ended with a dinner sponsored by Edmonton Global.
Tuesday consisted of a site visit to the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) to see their research efforts firsthand and explore opportunities for collaboration.
Nanotech Japan started on Wednesday and the Canadian pavilion was set up to showcase products, equipment, and innovative materials for ten Canadian organizations. Meeting tables, interpreters as well as coffee and snacks were provided to enable quality conversations and potential business leads.
Deep Tech Canada participated in the 15th Nanotechnology Association Conference. There were presentations given from Canada, USA, Netherlands, Taiwan, Korea and Japan providing an update on strategies and government priorities with regards to nanotechnology. The delegation spent the day at the Deep Tech Canada pavilion and participated in the Nano Biz networking reception held at the venue.
Friday was the third and final day of Nanotech Japan. The Canadian pavilion had many visitors, and our group had a successful day of meetings and networking.
Ten members of the delegation continued to the add-on portion of the mission to Seoul, South Korea. Monday was highlighted by site visits to Amogreentech, a leader in the world of advanced materials, and Memspack, an expert in semiconductor packaging.
On the final day of the mission, our group spent the day at the Canadian Embassy in Seoul where we heard from presenters from Born2Global Centre and Bigbang Angels, Inc. The rest of the day was spent in targeted business to business meetings.
A huge thank you to all our sponsors! Deep Tech Canada missions are hugely successful because of the efforts of our partners at home and abroad, along with the generous contributions from industry, government, and academia.
