The annual Tokyo Game Show typically takes place in September, but this year the event will take place from October 9 – 13 at the Makuhari Messe, show organizers Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association (CESA) announced today.
The last Tokyo Game Show took place from September 20 – 23 and marked the first time the event spanned four days. Two of the days were devoted to business while the other two were for consumers to check out the games on the show floor. TGS 2007 also set a new attendance record for the event with 193,040 visitors.
2008 seems to be full of changes for industry events. In addition to TGS being moved back, the Game Developers Conference was moved up into February (Feb. 18-22), putting it too close for comfort with D.I.C.E. this year, which takes places Feb. 6 – 8. In addition, the E3 business summit has left its Santa Monica venue from last year to return to the familiar Los Angeles Convention Center of years past.
