Destination Presentations

At 10:30 each day JNTO will be presenting all you need to know about Japan as a destination for international business events.

A destination like no other, Japan offers a diverse and unique selection of world-class meeting venues and incentive experiences, with something new and exciting to discover on every visit. Japan was host to 355 international conventions last year, making it the number one destination for business events in Asia. Japan will also host a number of large-scale international sporting events, including the 2019 Rugby World Cup and 2020 Olympic Games.

Japan’s cities are dynamic and sophisticated—an intrinsically Japanese combination of tradition and innovation. A wealth of spectacular natural beauty makes each city a breath-taking backdrop for your meeting. In addition, Japan invites you to discover warm hospitality, stunning hotels, traditional inns, impressive and unusual venues, both ancient and modern, as well as diverse authentic Japanese cuisine, including globally popular sushi and tempura, which has been designated by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage.

A visit to Japan is an opportunity to embrace a range of new ideas. And now, with the devaluation of the yen and the introduction of new direct flight connections, Japan is closer than ever before.
