Tokyo International Music Market will be holding their annual TIMM trade event in Tokyo, Japan from 28th - 30th October 2019.

TIMM is an annual 3 day international music trade event located in the bustling Tokyo pop culture centre and IT hub of Shibuya and is held in conjunction with Tokyo’s TIFF (Tokyo International Film Festival) and TIAF (Tokyo International Anime Festival).

TIMM attracts a wide variety of content holders from various industries as well as influential buyers from not only Asia but all over the world. The number of exhibitors, business meetings and total value of deals has been steadily increasing and in recent years has seen TIMM post record-highs.
