English Teachers in Japan Expos

September 27th, 2011By Category: Teaching in Japan

The ETJ Expos are held in six cities around Japan between October and December each year. There are presentations and displays of materials for college teachers, high school teachers, elementary school teachers, kindergarten teachers. The aim is to provide top-class presentations and material displays for every kind of teacher.

The following ELT-related organizations and individuals had displays at last year’s Expos: Abax, Alma Publishing, Bridge Learning, Cactus Education, Compass Publishing, the Daily Yomiuri, Dean Morgan, EFL Press, ELT Books, Eric Kane, Greg Crawford, Hiraki Books, IFG Asia, Intercom Press, IPI, JALT, Language Teaching Professionals, Lexicalport, Lexxica, Macmillan, McGraw Hill, OPM, Oxford University Press,


The admission fee for ETJ members is 500 yen. You pay this on the day of the Expo. It is also 500 yen for JALT and TALE members at the Tohoku Expo. Everybody else pays 1,000 yen. Non-members can join ETJ free of charge on the day of an Expo and pay the lower admission fee.

Information and preregistration

When preregistering, ETJ members only need to fill in your names, email addresses and the name of the Expo you plan to attend. If you do not preregister, you will need to provide more details such as your postal address on the day of the Expo.
Detailed information and a preregistration form is available here. It is OK to attend the Expos without preregistering, but it saves time on the day of the Expo both for yourself and for the volunteers taking care of registration.

Maps/presentation schedules can be found here.
