"Online Meet Japan, Edu. Fam"

Japan offers a diverse and unique selection of world-class meeting venues and cultural experiences, with something new and exciting to discover on every visit. The MEET JAPAN program is a hosted buyers’ program for association representatives as well as core PCOs/meeting planners of both academic and industrial organizations that gives you an opportunity to discover the diversity of Japan’s convention cities. 

This fiscal year, many of the prospective buyers may not be able to physically visit convention cities and venues on the study tour because of COVID-19. Therefore, we decided to help you prepare for your business recovery by offering our special “ONLINE Meet Japan, Edu. Fam” for the first time.
Meet Japan 2020 will be held in late January 2021, consisting of the following three parts:
 1. Educational Seminar
 2. Live stream “Online Fam. Trip” and
 3. Online Japan Convention Trade Mart, which gives Hosted Buyers the opportunity to meet with potential partners from other cities.
