About Tech Finder and Tech Finder AP


The Tech Finder exhibition was originally conceived and organized by Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. R&D Center in Sodegaura, Japan. The concept - “See, Touch, and Feel” – allows visitors to experience our actual product characteristics and explore the various applications. It was first held in 2016 in Sodegaura, to showcase the different products and services available within Mitsui Chemicals Group to internal audiences. Due to the extremely diverse businesses within the group, the exhibition creates a platform for staffs to understand our products better, and to explore innovative possibilities for cross-functional materials collaborations.


Since the start of Tech Finder, the exhibition had received much positive feedbacks from staffs. Through invitations and word of mouth, customers had also expressed keen interest to attend the exhibition, so as to find solutions for their businesses.


In 2019, the extended R&D wing in Singapore, MS-R&D, decided to bring the exhibition to Asia Pacific for the first time and named it as Tech Finder AP. The plan helped expand the reach of our products and services to affiliates in this region.
