Tokyo Game Show’s official attendance data have been released. Showing that the event will draw about half as many attendees as it did prior to the COVID-19 epidemic. According to geometry dash, the Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association, who organized the event, stated in an official press release that there were 138,192 visitors in total.

That’s more than half of the 262,076 people who attended the Tokyo Game Show before COVID-19.

According to Siliconera

this is slightly more than half of the 262,076 visitors who attended the Tokyo Game Show in 2019. Prior to the arrival of the COVID-19 global pandemic.

The dramatic drop in visitor numbers is partly due to restrictions on young visitors. As well as Japan’s continued restrictions on foreign tourists.

TGS 2022 took place over four days, from Thursday, September 15 to Sunday, September 18, at its traditional venue of the Makuhari Messe in Chiba City, and was open to both business and general visitors.

On Covid-19, the local government has sold out a limited number of tickets. However, due to “an uncertain youth immunization situation”; elementary school students and younger children were not able to participate.

Along with Japan’s continued COVID travel restrictions – the country is still not fully open to overseas visitors. There are likely to have had an impact on attendance numbers for the 2022 show.

The latest games industry show to confirm a return to physical events was TGS. The Game Developers Conference will take place in March in San Francisco and Gamescom in August in Germany

Meanwhile, ReedPop, the events company behind PAX, EGX, Star Wars Celebration, and New York Comic Con. It will take over the running of E3 in 2023 as a physical event.

Even while it’s encouraging that public events and gaming conventions are returning after the pandemic. The most recent Tokyo Game Show attendance figures are predictable.
