The Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) engages in a wide variety of activities and promotions to encourage tourists from all over the world to visit Japan. JNTO Canada's role includes information gathering, market analysis, planning and implementation of marketing and advertising campaigns and other media focused promotional activities for the Canadian market. In addition, the office provides consulting services as well as training and educational programs geared to the development and marketing of Japan-bound tours.
Despite the severe condition of the tourism industry, Japan has always been and will continue to be full of inspiring travel content such as nature, food, traditional culture, folk customs, and history. These attractions will bring opportunity and future possibility to inbound tourism after recovering from pandemic. Meanwhile sustainable tourism is gaining attention world-wide, and we hope to take this opportunity to promote Japan tours with this specific concept.
The objective of this travel expo is to create a unique networking opportunity between 1,000 show visitors (Canadian travel agents/professionals) and exhibitors/suppliers (airlines and Canadian tour operators) with the aim of introducing Japan travel and encouraging post-pandemic bookings. With the 3D platform, it will transform visitors from passive listeners to active participants using live chat, roundtable discussions and interactive capabilities to enable conversations and connections. The visitors can journey through digital platforms in kimono and explore the various cyber locations (10 exhibitor booths, venue for roundtable discussion, auditorium/theatre, and breakout venue for one-on-one meetings).
