We are in the midst of a period of reform before a forthcoming major change, as technological innovations accelerate the rate of change of everything. We are moving toward a new era, where the impossible will become possible and an unimaginable life will await us. Flexible integration of different areas and changes to enhance added value will likely be necessary. Based on our previous achievements, the tenth "LIVING & DESIGN" proposes future “houses and lifestyles” focusing on new possibilities, in order for the existing to become a foundation for innovations.

Since its foundation in 2009 under the concept of "Renovation for Residences and Lives," the international trade fair for living space, "LIVING & DESIGN," has expanded the living environment industry business by proposing lifestyles with superior sensitivity in the form of a trade fair. As a result, raising people’s interest in living environments, LIVING & DESIGN has been highly esteemed by many people as an international trade fair that activates the industry and promotes domestic demand. Thus, this fair will play a core role in the economy of Japan that falls far behind other nations in living environments.
"LIVING & DESIGN" has established its own style of releasing the latest information about interior from the trade fair venue and encouraging end users to renovate their concepts of living space while maintaining the alliance with various institutions and shops concerned. At the same time, considering environmental issues and the nature, we aim to integrate unique lifestyles and traditions Japanese people have built up into modern lifestyles with new ideas. By suggesting future lives, while pursuing people’s abundant lives in the real sense, we also try to steadily expand the living space, renovation and interior industries, which results in producing greater economic effects.
