Submitted by admin on 13 June 2022


JIAM 2022 OSAKA, organised by the Japan Sewing Machinery Manufactures Association (JASMA), is set to be held at Intex Osaka from 30 November to 3 December 2022. An estimated 109 exhibitors from 6 countries and regions will showcase their products bringing state of the art technology and master craftsmanship together.

The theme for the 2022 edition is ‘It all connects at JIAM the forefront of technology and master craftsmanship’.

The show will provide solutions catering to all needs in the sewing industry, combining high level skillsets that have survived drastic market changes in the past with the latest technology built on knowledge and history.

The apparel industry is facing serious environmental challenges because of mass consumption. According to the data from the ministry of the environment of Japan, an average of 1,300 tons of clothing is disposed each day in the country. In response to this situation, the ministry has proposed sustainable fashion as an initiative to make the industry eco-friendlier for companies and consumers.

Eleven seminars and panel discussions are scheduled to be held during the four-day fair. Of these, the most notable are ‘The Forefront of Asian Apparel: 10 Years of Struggle and the Future of Japanese Garment Manufacturers’.
