TPAM was launched as ”Tokyo Performing Arts Market” in 1995 and renamed ”Market” to ”Meeting” in 2011, when the main venue was moved to Yokohama. Through 11 editions in Yokohama and 25 editions in total, TPAM has developed a variety of projects, exchanges and collaborations with affiliated organizations beyond the function as a market for packaged works, and has participated in international collaboration with Asia since 2015. The achievement led us to gain the international recognition as the one and only in Japan, and the most influential performing arts platform in Asia.

In December 2021, TPAM will take a leap forward as ”YPAM – Yokohama Performing Arts Meeting (Tentative)” to strengthen the cooperation with Creative City Yokohama and pursue the commitment to both the local community and international art exchanges. We sincerely ask for your continued supports and cooperations.
