If you’re wondering how to get a signing from your favorite artist, read this and you’ll know all there is to know!

Posted on


At Japan Expo Sud, signings from guests on official areas are free but still, you have to follow these steps to get one.



  • You must take a signing ticket to get a signing at the session.
  • Now all the signing tickets have your photo on them. You can’t give them to someone else.
  • You can have only one signings per guest during the whole festival.
  • To access the signing area, you must show your entrance ticket.
  • Please note that signings are strictly forbidden for exhibitors, professional as well as amateur.

How does it work?

To get an signing, you must get a signing ticket: you won’t have access to the session without a signing ticket.

  • First go to the Signing Desk to get a signing ticket as early as you can in the day as "first come first served" are distributed at the opening of the show.
  • Wait in the line corresponding to the guest you want an signing from.
  • When it’s your turn, scan the barcode of the guest you want an signing from: then you can see how many tickets left there are on the screen. Check out it’s the right guest and the right session too.
  • Scan your entrance ticket:
    • for lotteries: the lottery is made by the computer. Thus, there is no cheating. If you win, the computer takes your photo and a ticket with your photo on it is printed.
    • for first come first served: the computer just takes your photo and a ticket with your photo on it is printed.
  • When you have your signing ticket, you can go to the session!
  • Then, your ticket is scanned and your identity checked out thanks to your photo (a dirty, damaged or illegible voucher will be refused at the signing session).

Signing material

  • Generally speaking, during signing sessions, you must show an official product from the artist. It may seem obvious but it’s worth a reminder, an official product is in no way a counterfeit!
  • For some artists, the festival gives a free signing ex-libris.


Japan Expo’s guests sign at the signing area. The map will be available in the weeks before the event.


Signing hours can be found:

  • on each guest's page and on the schdule on our website, published in the weeks before the festival
  • on the print schedule given on site 

Signing tickets can be withdrawn from the opening of the festival for first come first served: take them assoon as you arrive to get the best chances.

Lotteries start later in the day, depending on when the session starts.
