BackgroundEdit

THE VOC@LOID M@STER, often shortened to VOM@S (ボーマス) is a convention held four times a year in Tokyo or the neighboring Kanagawa Prefecture.

HistoryEdit

The event brings producers and illustrators involved with the production of VOCALOID art and music together so they can sell their work to others. Its title and many of the ideas behind them were influenced by "THE iDOLM@STER", a popular game from Japan. The event, much like the game, is based on promoting upcoming and raising Vocaloid stars. The term common Vocaloid producer term "-P" also originated from and was often used by groups at the events.

The original event was held in 2007 with 48 groups, or "circles", given permission to host stalls at the event for the selling of their goods. The event soon gained popularity and at the 14th event, nearly 500 groups had been chosen to have stalls. Additionally, Japanese companies involved with production of the software also have stalls at the events[1][2]

Special promotions also occur such as those related to Yuzuki Yukari V4 and Rana V4. These have included event exclusive merchandise, trials and early access to upcoming vocals.

Due to its popularity, the event was later expanded and "The UTAU M@STER" event was held for UTAU, the first of which took place on 19 Jul 2012.

The events have been one of the main influences on the success of the Japanese VOCALOIDs, with the magazine DTM MAGAZINE and various early Internet Memes, being two of the other major contributors.
