Registration Information
  • Project Anime Tokyo has a specific focus on networking, community building, and creating relationships between Japanese Industry professionals and event organizers. As a refresher, Project Anime is a B2B conference that began in 2012 and is organized under the Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation organization. This conference is for anime convention organizers and vendors to network, discuss challenges and solutions, and learn ways to better organize and promote their events.

    This could be a great opportunity to network with Japanese Pop Culture Industry professionals in Japan, learn the "best practices" of working with them, and how to acquire premier Japanese assets for Anime Cons. We work hard to craft an enriching experience for you and your team to grow, network, and get those hard questions answered in organizing a successful event.

    We plan to cover some common challenges, such as talent acquisition, growth logistics, talent management, budgeting, marketing strategies, and more, as well as host discussions and presentations by Japanese Industry about their companies and how to partner with them.


    Our primary mission for Project Anime is to create a space where we can build a community and uplift each other with the common interest of Anime, Japanese Pop Culture, and providing a great experience to the attendees of our events. We strive to be a secure and open forum for all industry, event organizers, and vendors to connect and aim to make this conference accessible to all levels of events and event organizers.

  • Meet other Event Organizers from around the world and build a community.

  • Learn from Japanese Industry professionals how to partner with them and bring their content to your conventions.

  • Network and grow your conventions by connecting with influential people within the Japanese Pop Culture Industry.

Please Join Us in Tokyo

  • “Project Anime has helped us connect with a few conventions in the United States that we otherwise wouldn't have known existed. We were able to reach more fans of our work thanks to the introductions Project Anime helped us make.”
