On the 8th of May, 2005, probably the biggest MSX event in years will be held in Tokyo, Japan. Its name? MSX World 2005 (I love MSX). The fair will be held in the heart of Akihabara, on the second floor of a large building close to the subway-station and will take part from 11:00 - 17:00.

During the fair both official companies and members of the MSX community will be represented, offering information on their recent developments and selling recent and older productions. Stand holders who would like to pay attention to 8bit platforms other than MSX are welcome as well, but the MSX platform and MSX related projects will be the center of attention during the entire day.

Visitors and participants are expected from all over the world, although no names have been revealed as of yet. It is, however, clear that the One Chip MSX1 will be demonstrated during the fair and there will be one or more lectures from prominent MSX personalities.

Funny, they even mention Tilbirg -> Tilburg on their website as a reference on how big the fair is going to be. If only they knew about the current state of CGV Tilburg... ^_^

details .. just details .. it's just that I wonder whether JP sees msx users outside JP anyway. It's all so 'closed-JP-comunity' now. Here on MRC there's at least English everyone understands and a number of additional popular msx-languages.

@Wolf: the problem is, that if the site would be an English one, most Japanese wouldn't understand anything of it anymore. Probably none of the organizers can write proper English as well, so in the end you'd get stuck with an Excite translation. But hey, you can make such a thing yourself as well Smile

And possibly the organizers of the event trusted that MRC would post about it (hence the MRC button?), so hey, nothing to complain Smile
