SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 30 July 2019 - The Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, Inc. (JAMA) will hold the 46th Tokyo Motor Show 2019 over a period of 12 days from October 24 through November 4.  With "OPEN FUTURE" as its theme and with the participation of 186 companies and organizations from seven countries around the world, the show will offer thrilling vehicle displays and entertaining events, and also enable visitors to see what mobility will look like and how it will be integrated into the urban living experience of the not-so-distant future. [1]

The 46th Tokyo Motor Show 2019 Explores the ‘Open Future’, Highlighting the Limitless Possibilities in Mobility


The "OPEN FUTURE" concept vividly reflects the open-ended scope of possibilities that the exciting new mobility of the future will embody, in addition to the basic enjoyment that motor vehicles and motorcycles provide to their users.  This year's show will demonstrate that the potential of the future is always expanding at the Tokyo Motor Show.


Special excitement will be generated at this year's Tokyo Motor Show through programs and events that have been conceived and organized on the basis of close collaborative efforts with other industries (see Attachment 2 herewith).  In addition, JAMA and the All Japan Business Committee will co-host the "Future Expo" event along with Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).


  • An expanded, wide-OPEN venue

In addition to Odaiba's Ariake area, where the Tokyo Motor Show has until now been held at Tokyo Big Sight, the venue for this year's show has been expanded to include, for the first time, the Aomi area. The show's venue will also include the new "Open Road" connecting the Ariake and Aomi areas, to create one vast "mobility theme park" for visitors to the show.


  • OPEN access to designated venue zones

Various zones within the Tokyo Motor Show venue will be accessible free of charge, to encourage people who might not otherwise visit the Tokyo Motor Show to come and enjoy show-related exhibits and activities.  See details below.

At the "Future Expo" event in the MEGAWEB venue, visitors will have a "typical day in the near future" experience.

Visitors will view and interact with the more than 100 items and cutting-edge technologies and services on display.

In the Aomi Exhibition Hall, an "imaginary city at work" will be set up, in collaboration with KidZania, where children will don the uniforms and "perform" the work of specific professions in the services sector.


In addition, also at MEGAWEB, various exciting, high-profile e-Motorsports competitions featuring the use of "Gran Turismo Sport" PlayStation® software will be held including:

-The global FIA Gran Turismo Championship 2019 World Tour 5 competition in which top players from all over the world will gather to race at the highest level

-The Under-18 All Japan Championships pitting against one another all 47 of the winners of the preliminary competitions held regionally throughout Japan

-The "TMS2019Exhibiting Manufacturers' Competition"

-The "One-Make" races (e.g., the "GR Supra GT-CUP" final) in which all the competitors drive the same specific vehicle model.
