Tokyo International Exhibition Center is the largest international exhibition center in Japan.

Tokyo Big Sight, officially known as Tokyo International Exhibition Center, is a convention and exhibition center in Tokyo, Japan, and the largest one in the country. Opened in April 1996, the center is located in the Ariake Minami district of Tokyo Waterfront City on the Tokyo Bay waterfront. Its most iconic feature is the visually distinctive Conference Tower. The name Tokyo Big Sight in Japanese eventually became the official name, and it also became the name of the operator in April 2003.
The center was a planned venue for the 2020 Summer Olympics hosting wrestling, fencing and taekwondo events, but the reduction of public funds forced the organization committee to choose an alternative location for these events; it instead served as the main broadcasting and press center for the Games.
Located on the shore of Tokyo Bay, about 30 minutes by rail from Tokyo Station, Big Sight is Japan’s largest international convention venue. Its most distinctive feature is the unique architecture of its 58 meters (190 ft) high eight-storey Conference Tower. The site utilizes steel frame with reinforced concrete construction, boasting a total floor area of 230,873 square meters (2,485,100 sq ft) which outsizes Makuhari Messe’s floor space by half, and of which 35% is indoors. The convention center is divided into three main areas, each with their own restaurants and other supporting facilities: The East Exhibition Hall, the West Exhibition Hall and the Conference Tower.
