JATA TABIHAKU 2013 has finalized the outline of the International Business Meetings planned for the first two days of the event, which will run for four days from Sept. 12 to Sept. 15, 2013.
The JATA International Business Meetings – Sept. 12 and 13, 2013 — will encompass professionals specializing in outbound and inbound tourism as well as those from media organizations where they can discuss business in a conducive face-to-face setting. This year for the first time, it will be all held under one roof in the East Hall to allow for more convenience.
The number of exhibitors (sellers) participating this year is expected to set an all-time high record. The second day on Sept. 13 will also be exclusive to the travel industry where they will be able to participate in the JATA International Business Meetings as well as to attend the first day of the TABIHAKU Travel Showcase, designated for the trade and media only.
In a move to enhance the Business Meetings for Inbound Tourism, some 100 companies from North and South America, Asia, Europe, Australia and New Zealand have been invited as buyers to further grow the inbound tourism sector.
Meanwhile, the online deadline to register for the JATA International Business Meetings is Friday, July 19, 2013 (Japan time). To date, responses from travel agencies have been strong.
