ATypI Tokyo

You’re invited to a celebration of all things typographic! Join us 4–7 September in Tokyo for ATypI 2019, the sixty-third annual conference of the non-profit Association Typographique Internationale. Four type-filled days and nights in this enthralling city will engage, entertain, and inspire you.

Rediscover typography in Tokyo, a city of change and tradition.


ATypI Tokyo will bring together typeface designers, publishers, developers, and educators from Japan and the global typographic community. Tokyo is the perfect environment for a global gathering: it is a crucible of hypermodernity and tradition, globalism and regionalism. ATypI is a global network that spans design professions, company sizes, and geographic areas of activity.

The conference is a stimulating environment where opportunities can arise to meet professionals from related industries, make connections across industries, and develop networks of learning, enterprise, and mentorship.

It is in this spirit of comprehension and inclusion that the ATypI 2019 conference invites designers, typographers, type designers, and type enthusiasts worldwide to Tokyo this September.

ATypI 2019 will take place at the Miraikan Museum in Tokyo, a space dedicated to emerging science and innovation.

  • Wednesday, 4 September: Pre-conference optional workshops and associated events. 
  • Thursday–Saturday, 5–7 September: The main conference programme, exhibitions, demonstrations, and special events. 

Please stay tuned for a conference hotel recommendation and early bird registration.
