2014 Musical Instruments Fair Japan Ready To Go

2014 Musical Instruments Fair Japan takes place from November 21 (Fri.) through 23 (Sun.) at a new venue, Tokyo Big Sight Convention Center after 3 years absence. A total of 124 exhibitors, 37 music retailer on-site shops and 12 outlet stores meet together under one roof.


Besides numerous world brands represented by Japanese distributors, 14 companies from China, England, Korea and Taiwan set up booths to appeal their products directly to Japanese consumer.

Being a consumer show, the 2014 Fair entertains the visitors with a host of new exciting products and technologies as well as several hundred musical entertainment programs including seminars and demos staged at Atrium, stages and exhibitor booths.


Musical Instruments Fair Association Japan has taken a bold step this year for the first time in its history to open music store streets where 37 leading music retailers do business on-site for the convenience of the visitors, and serving the retail market with additional business opportunities.


Located at Tokyo’s popular waterfront, the venue is expected to attract prospective music makers and general music fans, and the industry hopes that the Fair inspires desire for music playing among all age groups of the visitors.
