Japan Makes Prominent Comeback at IT&CMA, CTW Asia-Pacific

JAPANESE MICE sellers will make their presence felt at this year's IT&CMA and CTW Asia-Pacific, with the largest delegation from the country since 2010.

Fukuoka Convention & Visitors Bureau, Sapporo Convention Bureau, DMC Sapporo Co, Pripress Center and Fujita Kanko Hotels and Resorts will be among the Japanese companies exhibiting at the annual tradeshow in Bangkok, which will be held from October 1-3 at the Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld.

All are new to IT&CMA and CTW Asia-Pacific, except Sapporo Convention Bureau, which had exhibited at the event three years ago.

In a press statement issued by event organiser TTG Asia Media, Japanese MICE sellers are spurred to promote the destination on the back of a falling Japanese yen and recovery from the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.

Yukitsugu Ishikawa, chief representative, Singapore Representative Office of Fujita Kanko Hotels & Resorts, said: “Participating in IT&CMA and CTW Asia-Pacific is our chance to be competitive alongside other MICE hospitality chains in the world. It is also an ideal platform to learn about the needs of the MICE market, not just within Asia but also in the US and Europe. This is the best opportunity to network with people involved in the MICE industry.”

Marico Ogi, deputy director of Sapporo Convention Bureau, said: “With Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau as our new MICE partner, we are pleased to launch joint promotions and announce exciting business opportunities for buyers all over the world. IT&CMA and CTW Asia-Pacific present a vital opportunity for us to experience and engage potential buyers through the events’ official and social programmes.”
