Tokyo Big Sight

Address: 3-11-1 Ariake, Koto-ku, Tokyo
Tokyo Big Sight is the popular nickname for the Tokyo International Exhibition Center, a Japanese convention center that opened in April 1996. Located in Odaiba, Tokyo Bay, the center is one of the largest convention venues within the city, and its most iconic representation is the visually distinctive Conference Tower.

Contracted by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government's Bureau of Finance, the construction of the entire site was handled by eight contractors in total, among them companies such as the Hazama and Shimizu Corporations. Construction efforts began in October 1992 and were finalized in October 1995, the contract in total worth no less than 40,392 million Yen.[2] Forty-five percent of that sum went towards the sole handler of the Tower segment, the Hazama Corporation.
The former Governor of Tokyo, Shunichi Suzuki, had the honour of commencing the 1994 lifting-up ceremony on June 30, which initiated the operation of raising the Tower's 6500-ton main structure above ground,[2] a process which took three days to complete using a computer-guided system that precisely jacked the structure up into place. A 250-ton aerial escalator was installed later to formally link the raised structure to the ground floors.

Located within Ariake in Kōtō, Tokyo, the Big Sight's most distinctive feature is the unique architecture of its 58 m-high eight-storey Conference Tower. The site utilizes steel frame with reinforced concrete construction, boasting a total floor area of 230,873 m² 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 supporting facilities such as restaurants: The East Exhibition Hall, the West Exhibition Hall and the Conference Tower.
