2024.01.19 The Acceptance of Applications for Satellite Studio Users Begins

The Japan Association for the 2025 World Exposition (hereinafter referred to as “the Association”) has now begun accepting applications for the “Satellite Studios” to be developed at the site of Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan (hereinafter referred to as “the Expo”).
The “Satellite Studios” are broadcasting studios to be constructed in two locations, one on the east of the Expo site and the other on the west, overlooking the Water Plaza. In line with the Expo site design concept of “Unity in Diversity,” the ambitious building designs have been created by young architects. The buildings will contain three broadcast studios of approximately 50 m2 each (six studios in total). From each studio, it will be possible to view the Water Plaza and the rest of the Expo site, as well as feel the bustling atmosphere of the Expo up close and personal.
We are accepting applications for proposals to utilize these six studios to spread the attractions of the Expo to people throughout Japan and around the world through a wide variety of media, including online streaming as well as TV and radio broadcasts.
Please refer to the application details and schedule below.
