Tokyo Game Show 2022

  • Begins: 15.09.2022
  • Ends: 18.09.2022

City of Sendai, Japan invites game companies from Oulu region to Sendai shared booth introducing your game titles in Tokyo Game Show 2022 (15-16 September)

City of Sendai in Japan, which is the friendship city of Oulu, offers game companies in Oulu region a space to introduce your game in the Sendai shared booth in Tokyo Game Show held on 15-18 September 2022 at Makuhari Messe in Chiba next to Tokyo. Sendai booth will open only for the business days on 15-16 Sep.

As you already know, TGS is one of the biggest international game fairs in the world. This year, it’s organized as hybrid model. Although Japanese government has eased travel restrictions to enter Japan, a process of entering Japan for foreigners still feels to be complicate and difficult. For this invitation, traveling to Japan for TGS is not mandatory. You just send Sendai staffs company & game information and game data to be played by visitors. Sendai staffs take care of your game titles at the booth instead of you.

It’s a hybrid fair, therefore, you can have your own account from Sendai to meet business or interesting people and enjoy online contents in TGS virtual place.

Registration until 3 Jun 2022 (Fri)

(Note) Max 2 Finnish companies can be accepted for the Sendai booth. First come first served!!

Participation fee for the Sendai shared booth is basically free of charge, if you participate in TGS virtually.
