Today’s Highlight@Ikebukuro venue

Today is the second day of JCS2017 at the Ikebukuro venue, and we are happy to see many vibrant international visitors again.
This year, the pavilions and booths of all the countries and regions are also very distinctive and have many prominent eye-catching decorations, creating a friendly atmosphere as an international communication site.
This year’s keyword is “IP”. Expectations for TIFFCOM are also changing year by year.
Various demands generate at different stages and therefore a place of business is needed. These demands are related to original works, merchandising (commercialization), contents prior to becoming video works, and so forth.
This year, many IP related seminars are scheduled, and booths of exhibitors who are seeking for opportunities of IP negotiations have special “IP marks”. Many people are actively carrying on business negotiations.

Three seminars related to animation were held. A large number of visitors participated in these seminars. Overseas development and visualization of manga, service development of Anison are hot topics for visitors. We can understand the high interest in animation which is representative content of Japan. Many business talks were seen in each booths.

The 14th TIMM is the last day today. The marketplace/seminar held on 23, 24 Oct. talked about the world market and overseas expansion of Japanese music.
