Joint chamber event: 2013 Kansai International Meishi Exchange

Thu 31 October 2013 18:30 - 21:00
JPY 8,000

Under one roof, local Japanese businesses will join their foreign counterparts to strengthen existing ties and build new partnerships during an evening of business networking. This event is your opportunity to meet the main players and to explore new market opportunities in the Kansai region and abroad.

Kansai's Consular Corps, as well as City and Prefectural Government officials, will be on hand to facilitate networking and to provide market information to participants. Leaders from both the international and local business Chambers will also be in attendance to offer their expertise on current market conditions and potential business strategies.

In addition, there will be information booths for sponsors to distribute marketing materials and to answer any queries regarding their products. Finally, participants can look forward to a sumptuous buffet with drinks followed by a raffle including numerous grand prizes. All proceeds from the raffle will go towards charity supporting children affected by the Tohoku disaster.

Networking by industry: After last year's successful experiment, this year's format will again offer a 30-minute module for participants to meet and network exclusively among peers, colleagues and new members of their own industry.

The venue has limited capacity so registration will be done on a first come, first served basis. Registration will close upon reaching full capacity.
