    Tourism Expo Japan attracts travel brands from 130 countries

    TravelBizNews Online —

    Tokyo : Move over ITB and WTM – for travel brands serious about capturing lucrative Japanese outbound market share, JATA’s Tourism Expo Japan is now the world’s premier exhibiting event. This powerful platform to cost-effectively raise awareness, and engage and conduct meaningful business with qualified buyers, has opened 2018 exhibitor and buyer registration.

    Hiromo Tagawa, Chairman of the Japan Association of Travel Agents (JATA), notes a shift for Japan to not only set global per diem spending standards with outbound tourism, but he also sees his country as a nation based on tourism exchange, citing more than 50 million inbound visitors to Japan annually.

    All of which makes Japan one of the most important global players for both inbound and outbound tourism, and Tourism Expo Japan a crucial trade event to attend in 2018.

    Without fanfare, the Tourism Expo Japan, organized by JATA, has quietly emerged as the leading global travel/tourism show event for brands to capture inbound and outbound market share. This year’s Expo is being staged at Tokyo Big Sight, September 20-23, 2018.

    Launched in 2017, Tourism Expo Japan attracted a remarkable 1,310 travel brands from 130 countries and hosted 191,577 qualified trade buyers that came fully prepared to do real business.

    In 2018, Tourism Expo Japan is again poised to become the must-attend, must-exhibit event and platform for brands serious about outbound Japanese tourism, and for leading hotels, attractions, and venues from Japan to showcase their business to the world.  Source : JATA/EINPresswire.com

    • Connecting you with the world of travel and tourism

      What they say

      Tourism is a people’s sector. One in 10 people in the world are directly or indirectly employed by tourism. Ours is the responsibility to ensure that tourism benefits each and every community, leaving no one behind.
      Tourism’s sustained growth brings immense opportunities for economic welfare and development. Yet, it also brings in many challenges. Adapting our sector to the challenges of safety and security, to constant market changes, to digitalization and the limits of our natural resources should be priorities in our common action.
      As we move towards a future guided by the universal 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), I take upon me to lead UNWTO with a strong focus on building partnerships with public and private sector, fostering jobs and opportunities for all, mastering technology and innovation and advancing sustainability and the fight against climate change.
      I trust that, together with our Member States and our partners from around the world, we can build a more competitive and responsible tourism sector for the benefit of all. I wish you a very happy 2018.
      Zurab Pololikashvili
