Representatives of universities and research organizations hold presentations and poster sessions at the Academic Plaza. Visitors and exhibitors discover new technologies to adopt in their products and encounter interesting opportunities for joint research.
Exhibitors can hold 45-minute seminars to describe and demonstrate their products, technologies, and services. The seminars take place in rental space apart from the exhibitors' booths. Notices of the seminars appear in the FOOMA JAPAN materials and website, thus augmenting the seminars' PR value. Seminar attendees register in advance and leave a business card at the reception desk, so the companies that hold the seminars obtain useful information for follow-up contacts.
