Kyoto Convention Bureau Sees 11% Increase in Membership

Kyoto Convention Bureau has seen an 11% increase in membership as the conference, events and incentive markets continues to grow. Since March 2012, the number of members has grown from 244 to 270.

James Kent, international marketing manager at Kyoto Convention Bureau, said: “Kyoto has gone from strength to strength as a business destination. It offers event organisers a mix of cutting edge experiences alongside cultural attractions which is unrivalled by other cities. As the meetings and events market has grown, our members have seen the benefits of being a part of the Kyoto Convention Bureau as the amount of business they get has increased. This has shown other venues and service providers how they can tap into this lucrative market. Kyoto has great infrastructure for the meetings industry. We’re delighted that more organisations are joining and the addition of the new members will help make the city an even more attractive place to do business.”
