9 Mon 26 (Thursday) Tokyo was a nice day to fall.
The fabbit Conference IoT-Technology and Life-was held with the fabbit Global Gateway "Otemachi" as the main venue. The word “IoT (Internet of Things)”, where various things are connected via the Internet, is often heard. The theme of this time is to think about how our lives will evolve with the development of IoT technology, such as the ability to operate "things" through the Internet and grasp the state. In the first part, we invited three startup companies with IoT business, and in the second part, we invited Infonet Corporation President and CEO Makoto Kishimoto, and held a monthly seminar on the presidents of listed companies. We invited former Citigroup Securities Vice President, Hitotsubashi University Graduate School Adjunct Lecturer, Keio University Lecturer, Masatsugu Naka, as Moderators. Many people visited with 10 names at the 170 venues in Aoyama, Hachioji, Sakae, Osaka, Hiroshima, Motomachi, Fukuoka, Kokura, and Manila.

Mr. Furu from CANDY HOUSE JAPAN commented on the enthusiasm for promoting the spread to consumers in Japan and the United States and the impact on each industry due to the launch of the 5G service.
Mr. Kawachiyasu of Link Japan talked about business introductions such as IoT smart home solutions and monitoring services that can be realized at low prices, smart meters that can be retrofitted, and the possibility of linking with other services in the future. In addition, discussions from the consumer's perspective, such as questions about anxiety about takeover of IoT devices, were exciting from the venue.
The second part was listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange Mothers on June 2019 in June 25, focusing on commercial CMS services (Web site construction / content management system) A listed company president seminar was held by Mr. Makoto Kishimoto, President and CEO of Infonet Inc., who is striving to achieve the corporate mission of “enhancing people's lives by providing them close together”.
