CSR Aware DMC Invests In Potential Of Kyoto

The J Team, a leading Japanese DMC is opening an office in Kyoto. James Kent, international marketing manager at the Kyoto Convention Bureau said: “This is wonderful news and will enhance the city’s reputation as a popular destination for both conferences and incentives. Kyoto is a historical yet modern city. It has a wide range of superb facilities and venues for great events and we are looking forward to the creativity The J Team will bring to the market.”

The J Team joined the Kyoto Convention Bureau in 2010. Having previously focused purely on inbound travel, it aims to redefine DMC services in Japan for incentive, event, meeting and leisure travel by raising awareness about Japan’s culture and promoting it as an ideal destination across the professional travel industry.

Currently, the J Team is also involved in two large scale CSR activities for clients, aimed at helping the survivors of the Japanese earthquake and Tsunami earlier this year.

Geraint Holt of the J Team said: “Kyoto has really moved to the forefront of the Japanese market over the course of the last couple of years. Extensive investment by major hoteliers and a focus on marketing make it the ideal place from which to base our Kansai focused operations.”
