Each exhibition hall (1-12) has a category, and is marked with a picture which symbolizes the category.
(See the picture of mask on the balloon? It's for Carnival costumes etc. section)
Today, Kurokawa and our visitor from Japan went to Munich to re-visit shops I have visited for the market research the other day.
I had to stay at the booth all alone for about 9 hours, so was making an overview report (hardest one in any business trips, you know…) for the Toy fair itself and trip to Munich.
Yet I enjoyed talking with visitors to our booth :-)
Some were interested in Manga,Anime or video-games, and others, in our cards.
Especially, meeting with a business coordinator from Paris, who has been involved in inviting Japanese artist to France, Organizing Japan Expo etc. was very important to me.
I could learn a lot from him…
Did you know that now the France is bigger market than the US, for Japanese contents like Anime, Manga, etc!!?
If only they speak Japanese…then we could develop our sales to France immediately!
