TAF sees a 8.8% jump in attendance in 2007

Anime! Anime! has announced the final attendance numbers for the Tokyo International Anime Fair (TAF), which took place from March 22nd through the 25th at the Tokyo Big Sight Convention Center.

The total number of people who attended TAF is 107,713 people, up 8.8% from last year. 942 of the people at TAF came from overseas, most of whom were also in attendance on the event's two designated "business days." Although the number of Japanese companies attending the festival far exceeded the numbers of foreign companies in attendance, the increase in foreign attendance underscores the continued growth of the international Anime market.

Next year's TAF has been scheduled for March 27th through March 30th. The event will again be held at Tokyo Big Sight, which is also the site of some of the largest comic conventions in Japan.
