Determination of Booth Location
The location of booths will be determined at a booth location selection meeting to be held on June 18, 2020 (for exhibitors with 40 booths or more), and June 30, 2020 (for exhibitors with fewer than 40 booths).
If the exhibitor will not be able to attend the booth location selection meeting, the exhibitor must entrust the booth location selection to the OMO in advance.
Available Booth Shape
Exhibitors will choose booth locations in descending order of the number of applied booths.
In the case that there are exhibitors with the same number of booths, the order of selection will be decided as follows.
1. Exhibited last year (TGS2019) and applied for the show before the deadline.
2. Exhibited last year (TGS2019) and applied for the show after the deadline.
3. Did not exhibit last year and applied for the show before the deadline.
4. Did not exhibit last year and applied for the show after the deadline.
5. If there are several companies with the same requirements, CESA (Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association) members will be given the priority. If there are remaining exhibitors with the same condition, the order of selection will be decided by the lottery based on the registration order.
*Depending on the state of applications, there may be cases in which the selection method will be changed in advance. In that case, the OMO will send notification before the booth location selection meeting.
In the case of an exhibitor applying for 40 or more booth spaces, the organizer will assure the exhibitor of an island configuration (a layout without any adjoining booths).
It is not possible to change the number of booths at the booth location selection meeting.
If the number of booths cannot be accommodated during the booth location selection meeting, the exhibitor may have to adjust the number of booths requested in consultation with the OMO, or may be asked to change the depth-to-width ratio of the exhibition area, with the applied area being unchanged.
The exhibitor cannot change the location of booths after their selection. However, there may be cases in which the location of the exhibitor's booth will be changed, based on the exhibitor's consultation with the OMO, due to a booth cancellation by another exhibitor, the addition of new booths or other reasons.
