The Tokyo International Anime Fair
Like every year, there is going to be the Tokyo International Anime Fair. It is the largest anime trade fair in the world. If you get the chance to be in Tokyo on March 23rd and 24th, have a look at the convention and exhibition center Tokyo Big Sight where it will be held.
You will find many booths offering all kinds of animation and character goodies, as well as hundreds of Japanese and foreign companies showing their latest creations. You will also have the opportunity to be part of workshops or to attend shows and lectures given by various artists and voice actors.
The Tokyo International Anime Fair, also known as TAF, is not only a major event for all anime fans. It is also a place to honor young artists and designers. For them it is a good way to meet potential buyers, production anime-related companies, and get into in the animation industry.
