Tokyo International Anime Fair (TAF) 2007
The Tokyo International Anime Fair (known as "TAF") is the world's largest anime exhibition. Held every spring at Tokyo Big Sight, the exhibition features a "trade fair" with booth exhibits by anime-related companies, "events" including spectacular stage performances and theater movie showings/displays, and the "Tokyo Anime Awards" in which outstanding anime works are presented with awards. Every year the exhibition attracts the attention of people throughout the world for its extensive program. Through the kind support of a diversity of people including business users, families and anime fans, TAF 2006 (held in March 2006) featured exhibits by 256 companies (73 from overseas) and welcomed a record 98,984 visitors over the four days of the event.
