Welcome to ATypI 2019 Tokyo!

Here are a few details to get you ready for the conference!

CHECKING IN FOR WEDNESDAY WORKSHOPS AND TYPE INSIGHTS
Workshop check-in opens at 8:30 am on Wednesday, September 4, at the ATypI registration desk on the 7th floor of the Miraikan. Bring your ID and get ready to learn! If you are attending a morning or full-day workshop, you must check in by 9:00 am. If you're only attending an afternoon workshop or the Type Insights sessions, please check in by 2:00 pm.

WEDNESDAY CHECK-IN FOR THE MAIN CONFERENCE
Check-in for the main conference will open at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, September 4. Bring your ID to the ATypI registration desk on the 7th floor of the Miraikan, where you will pick up your badge, program guide, goodie bag, and T-shirt. You must wear your badge to be admitted to the General Session and special events! After you check in, take a stroll around the venue or catch up with friends until it's time for the opening festivities.
 
WEDNESDAY NIGHT—THE MAIN PROGRAM BEGINS!
Starting at 7:00 pm, enjoy drinks and nibbles at the ATypI 2019 opening cocktail reception, sponsored by Monotype. At 8:00 pm, the main program kicks off with a splash—the opening keynote by John Maeda, sponsored by Morisawa.

THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY—GENERAL SESSION Onsite registration opens at 8:00 am daily, along with a light breakfast. The General Session begins at 9:00 am daily. Please check your printed program guide or the online schedule to find out who's speaking when.

We are presenting ATypI 2019 in both English and Japanese. Some blocks of programming will be in English, while others will be in Japanese. Presenters will appear live on stage in the Miraikan Hall theater, with simultaneous oral translation and video broadcast into the Innovation Hall. For example, if there is a Japanese speaker on stage in Miraikan Hall, English-only attendees would move to the Innovation Hall for translation. If an English-speaking presenter is on stage in the Miraikan Hall, Japanese-speaking attendees would move to Innovation. Attendees fluent in both languages may choose to sit in either hall.

SATURDAY NIGHT AND THE CLOSING FESTIVITIES
Eat, drink, and be merry at Big Time in Tokyo, our fabulous closing party, sponsored by Adobe. The venue is the Art Factory, located at 2 Chome-4-10 Jonanjima, Ota Ku, Tokyo. There will be lots of food, drinks, music, dancing, and fun activities. More details and information on how to get to the party will be given to conference attendees at the Miraikan.

IMPORTANT SECURITY AND ADMISSION NOTE
Once you have your badge, make sure you don't lose it! It's required to be admitted to ATypI events, and there is a $50 USD replacement fee if you lose it.
