We participate in trade shows in order to introduce Anritsu products to our customers and many other stakeholders.
●Mobile World Congress 2017
We participated in Mobile World Congress 2017, one of the world’s largest trade shows for mobile communications technology, which was held in February 2017 in Barcelona, Spain.
The event attracted 108,000 visitors from 208 countries, far more than the 101,000 visitors from 204 countries who came in 2016, and as many as 2,300 exhibitors took part. This year’s theme was “The Next Element.” Anritsu introduced solutions under the slogan, “Measure – Monitor – Monetize,” with a focus on LTE-A Pro/5G, IoT/M2M, construction, maintenance and monitoring of networks.
We will continue contributing to the development of mobile broadband services by remaining the first to provide the most advanced technologies.

NGOs and NPOs
Although six years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake, many issues stand in the way of reconstructing the affected regions and require additional assistance. In the hope of supporting Fukushima Prefecture, where Tohoku Anritsu Co., Ltd. is also located, Anritsu conducted a campaign in which employees volunteered to collect donations from December 20, 2016 to January 20, 2017. The funds collected were donated to the Japan Platform (JPF), a registered nonprofit organization. JPF uses the money to subsidize support activities for those affected in Fukushima, conducted by organizations screened and approved by the JPF.
We will continue to contribute to society through collaborations with international NGOs and NPOs.
●Photo Exhibition of the Great East Japan Earthquake
The Anritsu Group also felt the impact of the disaster through damage to Tohoku Anritsu Co., Ltd. and the Koriyama Business Office of Anritsu Corporation. And yet we become forgetful with each passing year. To look back on those early days and prevent our memories from fading, we followed up on the exhibition held in March 2016 at our global headquarters building with a photo exhibiting at the Koriyama Business Office of Tohoku Anritsu in April 2016.
The exhibition was composed of photographs taken by Masayoshi Tokita, a photojournalist and former Anritsu employee, and in-house records compiled for the company newsletter. It also included an exhibit organized by Tohoku Anritsu and exhibits based on the theme of “risk response at home,” which explained how to prepare for an earthquake and other disasters and keep safe, as well as for breakdowns in lifelines and evacuation.
