Event Overview
Over the past decade, Japan's tourism industry has shifted from a domestic orientation to an international tourist orientation. This shift has been evident in various ways, such as the significant increase in inbound tourists, which has propelled Japanese department store sales to record highs. Additionally, hotel operators have responded to this shift by planning to open properties designed to attract these tourists at new destinations.
The shift in Japan's tourism industry is not just a change in one sector, but a transformation that could have far-reaching effects across industries. This event will delve into how the shift unlocked untapped markets in Japan, presenting a unique chance for growth and development. A networking session will be held shortly after the presentation. Guests are also welcome, but are kindly requested to register in advance.
