The 2024 Nikkei Architectural and Construction Materials Show, which will be held from March 12th to 15th, is the biggest construction industry trade show in Japan. It covers everything from lumber to finished products. Nikkei attracts large numbers of architects and designers working on commercial projects, so it is a great event to promote high value wood products and finishing materials. Prior to COVID, this show welcomed over 200,000 visitors over its four days and the March 2023 edition once again returned to this level. Please see our video recap of that last Nikkei Show at:

BC Wood will once again be organizing the Canadian Pavilion at Nikkei Messe on behalf of industry. As before, BC Wood will help take the stress and uncertainty out of exhibiting at the show. We will assist with all the logistics required for setting up your display, including the design and the preparation of Japanese language marketing materials.

Also, doing a trade show with the BC Wood Japan Office’s support is very different than exhibiting somewhere on your own. First of all, we maintain a database of over 20,000 industry contacts in Japan. We leverage this database to specifically find potential clients who are interested in your products. We then engage these contacts on your behalf well before the show ever starts. That way, you will have four days of qualified meetings at the show pre-scheduled for you. We further promote your company by rolling out an aggressive online campaign prior to the Nikkei Show that reaches over 8000 industry people subscribed to our Japanese eNewsletter as well as our SNS audience in Japan.

Please contact me at and we can set-up a time to chat about this year’s program and how BC Wood can help you expand your business opportunities in the Japanese market. If you want to enter the Japanese market or expand your presence here, this is the show that you want to be at.
