What is “tide” ?

"tide" is a special exhibiting area created inside IOFT, which is exclusively offered to stylish and unique international eyewear designers.
International designers from various countries such as France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and U.S. gather at IOFT.
You will see the latest original eyeglasses from around the world just here in Tokyo.

Screening of Exhibits

"tide" establishes the screening committee and conducts screening of exhibits to maintain the concept and the quality of the "tide" area.

The criteria of the screening are below.

International Designer Brands

“tide” exhibitors need to be international designers who create eyewear/accessories with their original design. No licencedbrands and Japanese brands are allowed to exhibit.


To respect and maintain the quality of “tide” exhibitors, imitation products are not allowed to exhibit.

* Besides those rules, if Show Management considers the exhibit inappropriate for “tide”, Show Management shall ask the exhibitor to participate in other areas.

Admission fee: JPY 5,000/person without this ticket. Those under the age of 18 are not permitted to enter.
