  • The CP + Secretariat has started accepting applications for CP + 2021 to be held from February 25th (Thursday) to 28th (Sunday), 2021 on October 28th. In addition to the conventional Pacifico Yokohama, it will be held online in a new form. Admission will continue to be free with pre-registration on the Web.

    As one of the measures against infectious diseases, a new topic is to enforce admission restrictions to avoid crowding of visitors. Divide the day into two time zones (A: 10:00 to 14:00, B: 14:00 to 18:00, B until 17:00 on the last day), and accept advance reservations for each admission time. That is. The replacement system will not be implemented.

    In addition, we recommend that exhibitors be replaced within 15 minutes each time, and that there is no waiting line for touch and try. For details, PDF is available on the CP + 2021 website.

    From February 25 (Thursday) to 28 (Sunday), 2021, the Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA) (president: Masaya Maeda; address: MA Shibaura Bldg., 3-8-10 Shibaura, Minato-ku, Tokyo Japan) will hold CP+2021, which is an international world premier show for camera & photo imaging that aims to introduce the latest products and technologies and communicate the future of the industry and the fun and growing popularity of photo imaging culture.

    CP+2021 will be organized in a new way combining on-site and online exhibitions. Applications for exhibiting at this event will open on Wednesday, November 4, 2020. As you may also know, in this period of quarantine measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection, online activities have become very popular in society at large. We believe that we can make use of such activities to make CP+ more attractive than ever before.

    CP+, the international camera & photo imaging show that aims to transmit information from Japan to the world, continues to support the development of the camera & photo imaging industries and of photo imaging culture. We appreciate your support and cooperation for our actions.
