Pavilion Exhibition

【New Exhibition Style】

2 types of independent tents can be used not only for display, but also for event space. These two tents allow exhibitors to create free-style and original displays with sound and lighting, and they can host their own event and invite special guests to their space.

【Trend Shift】
The visitors of TDW are coming from both outside and inside the design industry. A wide range of visitors is one of the characteristics of TDW which makes the event very different from trade shows. In recent years, more exhibitors aim to approach consumers, attempting better branding and more product promotion. Especially after IT and SNS have prevailed among general public, every person can be an information sender and be the media itself. The visitors to TDW are very active in collecting information as well as sending out the information. It is considered as one of the possibilities to target the audience which does not react to usual commercial forms and advertisements and thus more corporations and companies are focusing on this huge potential market.

【Exhibition Merits】
① Place for Corporate Branding
Deploy branding and product promotion targeting 120,000 consumers including tourists from all over the world through design and art. It aims to spread the information not only among the visitors but also beyond the event space through their social networks, such as twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
② Place for Product Promotion
Regardless age, sex and nationality, TDW visitors are very design-conscious who always follow the source of trends before the general public. It’s an ideal place for releasing and promoting new products.
③ Place for Test Marketing
Not only promoting new products, creators and exhibitors (companies) can also conduct test marketing at the space.
④ Place for Business Matching
This is an event not only for matching with buyers, distributors and media, but for creating new opportunities and possibilities as well. It’s a place for finding out more variety of large and small industries, designers, artists and consumers, thus leading to new product ideas and services in the future.

⑤ Place for exhibition and spot-sales
This is one of the things only TDW does—exhibitors can sell their products whether they purchased a booth space or not. TDW visitors can purchase products on the spot.
