Why has TIFFCOM grown over the last three years?

TIFFCOM is growing year by year. In 2017, the number of participants, exhibitors and registered buyers all marked new records as follows.

●Participants 19,549 (107% compared to last year)
●Exhibitors  371 (104% compared to last year)
●Registered Buyers 1,549(101% compared to last year)
(All data is from Japan Content Showcase 2017)

All of the above numbers have grown for three consecutive years. Furthermore, based on a survey taken after the market, the number of business meetings and the total value of contracts have also grown in the last three years.
●Business Meetings 7,798(115% compared to last year)
●Total Value of Contracts $60,050,000(113% compared to last year)
(All data is from Japan Content Showcase 2017)

The reason for the growth is quite clear. The content market in Asia is rapidly expanding and receiving a great deal of attention and under these circumstances, TIFFCOM is recognized as one of the important content markets. Increasing appreciation and expectation of Japanese content including animation is another important factor for the growth of TIFFCOM.
