About the online marketplace, NEOKET


We wanted to create a marketplace atmosphere where fans can visit virtually from all over the world. NEOKET was designed to realize this dream and create a new style of meeting. Fans and creators will be able to gather in the same space, share their passions, and exchange ideas!

NEOKET also welcomes participants bringing only already-published works. We look forward to meeting you, who're all so passionate about the creation and sale of works, at the NEO International Exhibition Center. Let's enjoy the market!
