Many prominent speakers from a variety of backgrounds, including renowned illustrators, popular streamers, and YouTubers also attend the event.

Japan Expo 2023

Celsys exhibited at Japan Expo 2023 held in Paris, France in July 2023 in collaboration with publishers and vocational schools in the manga field.

Celsys was the main sponsor of Mangas.io, the first subscription-based manga reading app in Europe, at its booth, Quartier Manga. The Quartier Manga booth was a realistic, immersive booth decorated to resemble a Japanese side street. It had over 13 companies from the manga and anime industry, including comic publishers Kana, Nouvelle Hydre, and Nazca online streaming platform ADN, as well as distributor giant FNAC.

Clip Studio Paint’s functions were introduced at the booth, activation codes for three months of use of Clip Studio Paint EX were distributed, and live drawing sessions using Clip Studio Paint were also held on stage.

Clip Studio Paint also exhibited at a joint booth with Human Academy Europe, a manga, animation, and game school in Angoulême, France. In the demonstration area, the school's students showed how to use the app on a variety of devices, including tablets, iPads, and smartphones. 

Attracting more than 250,000 visitors over the four days, Japan Expo 2023 also featured autograph sessions by France-based artists, games, live demonstrations, and a live drawing contest.
