Terms and Conditions on Participation
To Participate in TAS
① Only products of those which satisfy the show’s requirements may take part in TOKYO AUTO SALON (TAS), i.e. car-related products, technologies, services and solutions. The organizer Tokyo Auto Salon Association (TASA) deserves the right to order an immediate removal whenever, regardless of before or during the course of the show, we detect improper showpiece or article of any kind that is in breach of such the requirements and/or laws and regulations and/or public order and morality. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may nullify or call off the Exhibitor’s participation itself with immediate effect if such removal is insufficient and the Exhibitor nonetheless has a risk of obstructing us to keep the show running smoothly.
② All Exhibitors shall abide by the law in the strictest manner. On top of that, any action that can cause trouble to other Exhibitors, organizers, officials, visitors and neighbourhood residents are strictly prohibited for any reason whatsoever.
③ Any of the following are totally banned from the show: flammable, explosive or radioactive materials; deadly/poisonous chemicals; intoxicating drugs (including legal highs); products, technologies or whatever that infringe the industrial property rights or other rights of any third party; products subject to embargo or prohibition of sales; and naked flame.
④ Inventive products/technologies of the Exhibitor which are currently in preparation for filing of industrial property rights application will be protected by Paragraph 30, Article 3 of the Patent Act; Paragraph 11, Article 1 of the Utility Model Act; Paragraph 4, Article 2 of the Design Act; and/or Paragraph 9, Article 1 of the Trademark Act.
⑤ Any foreign product must pass through the customs clearance to be exhibited as a domestic product, particularly true for any product to be consumed or fabricated on the show premises.
⑥ All vehicles to be displayed, except for those which TASA gives special approval to (such as purpose-built racing cars), shall conform to the safety standards by Road Transport Vehicle Act, thus street legal in Japan. We deserve the right to order an immediate removal of any non-conforming/illegal vehicle regardless of before or during the course of the show. Such the organizer-approved cars with no licence plate shall be unloaded/loaded only in designated areas within the hall, and shall be transported by car carrier trailer.
⑦ All exhibitors shall adhere to the Road Traffic Act. Any violations such as blipping/revving, driving with illuminations on, immoderate horn-blaring, and mobile phone usage while driving are not allowed both inside and out of the venue.
⑧ The Exhibitor shall read carefully and agree to all the relevant terms and conditions on the “Exhibitors Guide (this booklet)” and the “Exhibitor’s Guidelines (will be sent to successful applicants in mid October)”, and be aware that the Exhibitor’s participation is legally binding. Meanwhile, whenever any issues arising out of or in connection with other than those above, the Exhibitor shall agree to follow TASA’s decision to settle such issues, in a bid to ensure the healthy operation as well as the benefit of all the Exhibitors.
We assume no responsibility whatsoever (including monetary compensation) for any direct or indirect damage, loss or prejudice caused by any of the respective items set forth herein.
Prohibition of Display and/or Sales of Counterfeit, Fake, Pirated and Other Infringing Products
The Exhibitor is strictly prohibited from displaying, selling, distributing, presenting, unveilling or rolling out products/technologies/ solutions that infringe the intellectual property rights of any third party (i.e. counterfeit, fake or pirated products). Intellectual property rights include but not limited to: patent right, trademark right, design right and copyright which are in force both in Japan and any other countries. If the Exhibitor’s exhibits or article of any kind indicate a high likelihood of such infringement, TASA may remove or take other actions against such the showpiece(s).
Any dispute arising from the infringement of the property rights shall be resolved on the Exhibitor’s own responsibility.
TASA’s Policy towards Vehicle on Display
Looking back on the history of TOKYO AUTO SALON, the show in the very early years occasionally drew some negative attention for featuring what they might presume “antisocially-modified cars”. However, in recent years, such skepticism has been dispelled and the idea of modified cars known as custom car, tuned car and dressed-up car has become widely acknowledged. It now achieved social recognition in its own right as a genre of the automobile culture. This would not have been possible without the automotive industry’s, including current and past TAS Exhibitors, ceaseless efforts made to have the custom car culture take root in society. And yet, there still are some thoughtlessly-modified cars found at the show as if jeopardizing such the efforts. Those imprudent behaviours not only go against the times but leave a very bad impression on society. TASA has quite a few authentic voices from various quarters that the bona fide Exhibitors with legitimately-modified cars as well as the whole industry may suffer a disadvantage because of that. TASA takes a zero-tolerance approach towards any illegally-modified car. We would also ask every one of the Exhibitors once again to follow our policy that the Exhibitors duly confirm all the vehicles on display, except for purpose-built racing cars, are roadworthy in conformity with the safety standards. Such being the case, those likely to give the impression of car gang and extremely-modified cars as typified by “vanning”, lowrider and hydraulics are not allowed to take part in TAS.
Notes and Conditions on Construction and Decoration
If TASA deems the Exhibitor’s showpiece, article or decor of any kind being in breach of any of the following, we may order to rectify
such violation or remove the violative object immediately even during the course of the show. Failure to comply may result in
discontinuation of your participation in the show. The Exhibitor shall be responsible for all the cost relating to such measures.
The Exhibitor shall keep all showpiece, decor, fixtures and fittings within his stand. It includes angle bars to enhance the self-supporting ability of
panels, lighting/audio equipment and performers. The limitation is applicable not only to width and depth but to height.

No banners or flags can be hung from the wire/balloon.br> b)The Exhibitor shall set the balloon to hover over his own stand, and not move in on other Exhibitors’ stands or gangways/aisles. The balloon must be 18m or smaller in diametre, and positioned at least one metre inside the boundary line of the Exhibitor’s stand. The same is true for the balloon swinging in the air-conditioning wind.
c)Those who wish to have a balloon of 150m2 or over shall consult TASA in advance. You will be notified after TASA and the venue consider whether to approve it. Some cases may require prior approval from the Fire Authority as well.
* Keep in mind that the Fire Authority not always gives permission to such giant balloons or they may issue a correction order even if TASA approves to.
