A very huge conference center

Best to study the layout as well as the transportation option if you are not staying at one of the adjacent hotels.

Makuhari Messe hosted Gastech 2017 Exhibition and Conference in April 2017. I along with my team was representing Gail (India) at the exhibition. The Halls are massive. Hall 1 was the farthest from the entrance gate. It was hosting the conferences for the 4 days of event. The halls have Vending machines all over to serve cold drinks and hot... More

Some of the performers were Shawn Mendes, Austin Mahone, Sabrina Carpenter, DNCE along with Asian groups. We had Gold Tickets that were expensive but we got to avoid the long lines and... More

I visited one of the exhibition during the last year and it was one of the great experience to be in such a large exhibition hall.

The Makuhari Messe is what you would expect - it is an exhibition area! The free WiFi is a problem if you don't have a local SIM / don't want to use international calling to sign up (making it "not free"). This should be resolved. Otherwise it is largely what you would expect from a Messe!

I had been here a total of 3 times to attend Tokyo Game Show and Jump Festa (a Japanese animation related event). First and foremost, you do not have to arrive too early, just about one hour or so before the event opens is fine unless you want to be first to grab some promotional stuff in there. Even though...

I came here for AKB48 Individual handshake. The place is very big and as always it is clean and neat. The number of toilets are sufficient for large amount of people during the event.
