Notification of Postponement Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic

In view of the spreading COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone PAPER TOYOTA 2020.
The decision was reached through discussion at an Executive Committee meeting, taking into consideration the opinions of participating organizations and stakeholders, and the health and wellbeing of the participants.

We are currently coordinating plans to hold the event a year later instead.
In order to make the project even more fulfilling, we will use the postponement period to work on the preparations and make PAPER TOYOTA 2020 even more exciting.

We will announce an outline of next year’s event and our future activities on our official website,, as soon as they are decided.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the event.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused, and thank you for your understanding.
