About TIMM

The 15th annual Tokyo International Music Market will be held at Shibuya on October 22nd (Mon), 23rd (Tue), and 24th (Wed.)

TIMM had a lot of turning point these past several years such as starting up Japan Content Showcase and changing locations to Shibuya.
In recent years we have been putting more thought in "Inviting trustworthy buyers”, having “Successful business negotiation seminars”, and “Business enrichment seminars.”

With music becoming more global every year, please look forward to TIMM having beneficial contents regarding international relations and music expansion overseas.

We look forward to seeing you at TIMM this year.


TIMM marketplace will take place at Shibuya Excel Hotel Tokyu on October 22 and 23.
Buyers from more than 15 countries/areas will be participating in business meetings with Japanese music companies and officials. This year we plan on enhancing "business matching" for exhibitors.

Business Seminars will also take place at Shibuya Excel Hotel Tokyu on October 22 and 23. Last year we had 8 seminars and this year we will be having 10. We will not only focusing on music industry trends, also providing useful tips for your music careers international.
