Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies  (also known as CEATEC) is an annual trade show  in Japan. It is regarded as the Japanese equivalent of Consumer Electronics Show. It is Japan's largest IT and electronics exhibition and conference.
CEATEC provides a platform for companies and organizations from all over the world to showcase their cutting-edge products, services and technologies. The event also serves as key industry networking and information-gathering opportunity, with numerous seminars and other activities offered during the fair.
The show is held every year in October in Makuhari Messe since the first CEATEC in 2000. The most recent exhibition, the ninth iteration of CEATEC, was held between September 30 to October 4, 2008. CEATEC Japan 2008, attracted nearly 197,000 visitors, with some 804 exhibitors and 138 seminars. Attendance was down from the almost 206,000 people and 895 companies in 2007 as it apparently felt the crunch of the financial crisis of 2007–2010.
