TOKYO DESIGNERS WEEK's main content is the 'Creative Life Exhibition'. It attracts more than 120,000 visitors and creates promotional opportunities for corporations and creators. The visitors include manufactures, buyers, various media, people from the design industry who can be business incubators. TOKYO DESIGNERS WEEK is not just an international design event, but it has two faces: 'Business to Business' (B to B), by matching new business partners, and 'Business to Consumer'(B to C), by creating access and connections between the consumers and creators.r
