Tokyo International Music Market (TIMM) is an event that brings together professionals of the music industry from Japan and abroad with the common goal of taking Japanese music overseas. Last two year, considering the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the event was held in online platform called TIMMONLINE and at where, we offered the same menu as TIMM’s offline event such as business networking, business seminars and showcase live.
This year, the 19th TIMM will be organized once again in fall, October 17 – 19 in hybrid format (Online/Offline) in view of the current situation where regulations due to COVID-19 are being easing around the world.
For those planning to attend TIMM in person, we have prepared various contents including business matching/networking, business seminars at STREAM Hall and artist showcase in Shibuya. Online participants will be able to access to the most of contents from anywhere in the world via TIMMONLINE.
Details of business seminars and showcase live will be announced on the TIMM official website as soon as the contents are finalized.
In addition, depending on the situation of the COVID-19 infection in the future, the holding format, the contents, and the time schedule may change. These will be also informed you on the official site.

・ Exhibitors have their own (self) page in TIMMONLINE, and can engage in business negotiations and networking between related parties and promotion of artists and their music.
