What is TIMM?

Tokyo International Music Market (TIMM) is the one and only music market in Japan that offers Japanese music a platform for overseas expansion and international exchange in the rapidly changing global music industry.

The main components of TIMM are the Marketplace/Business Matching with overseas buyers, the Business Seminars, which are very popular every year, and the Live Music Showcase offering an opportunity for musicians to appeal directly to overseas buyers.  

Marketplace/Business Matching

In addition to international music industry professionals from more than  32 different countries (2020 results) gathering to discuss business, measures are also taken to promote business matching between exhibitors and overseas buyers.

Business Seminars

Business seminars will be held on the theme “the latest trends in the music industry immediately helpful for expanding overseas.”

Live Music Showcase

Along with performances by numerous Japanese artists (*) aiming to enter overseas markets, there will also be performances by overseas artists selected from among partner events.  

*Performing artists are required to exhibit at TIMM.

Kick-off Party

A kick-off party will be held exclusively for the overseas buyers and exhibitors at TIMM. We hope you can use this opportunity to engage in exchange with overseas buyers over drinks and a meal and that it will eventually lead to fruitful business relationships.
