Japan National Tourism Organization hosts Japan Information Nights
Representatives of Japan’s travel industry gathered last week at the Japan Information Nights in Brisbane on 5 December and Sydney on 7 December, organised by Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO).
This year JNTO invited guest speakers for both cities – with MasterChef Australia 2017’s runner-up Ben Ungermann in Brisbane and Top 9 Finalist Callan Smith in Sydney, to speak about their personal experience of travelling in Japan.
Japan Information Night 2017 featured 17 suppliers in Brisbane and 33 suppliers in Sydney, including representatives from local governments, DMCs, accommodation, attractions, amenities and transportation.
In total 69 travel agents attended the Japan Information Night held in Brisbane, whilst a whopping 117 participants joined the Sydney event, the most participants JNTO has ever hosted at a seminar trade event.
The event provided an opportunity for travel agents to network and get direct updates from Japanese travel suppliers through one-on-one free-flow business meetings as well as learning more about general travel information.
