Welcome to VJTM 2017
In Japan, the number of inbound visitors to Japan since reaching the 10 million mark in 2013 has increased to 2.4 times that amount in as little as three years, surpassing 24 million in 2016 and breaking the previous highest record. The Japanese government has established numeric targets of 40 million inbound tourists to Japan and 8 trillion yen in consumption by foreign tourists in Japan for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. Thus, tourism-related businesses have increasingly become important from the viewpoint of inbound tourism in Japanese industries.
"VISIT JAPAN Travel & MICE Mart (VJTM) 2017" is an inbound business talk session where overseas travel agencies for trips to Japan and other related parties as well as tourism-related operators based in Japan meet to create a variety of inbound businesses. In taking part in one of the world's largest international tourist events in tandem the with jointly-held "Tourism EXPO Japan," we will aim to promote the entire tourism industry and stimulate local economies.
The business talk session in VJTM 2017 uses an advance appointment-matching system to enable effective and efficient arrangement of business talks. We are confident that it will be of great assistance to you in developing new products for traveling to Japan and in promoting business and enterprises to plan and arrange MICE. We therefore earnestly encourage you to use "VJTM 2017" as an opportunity to exchange information and expand your business and enterprises related to travel in Japan.
