JNTO announces photo and video contest for MICE

Contest to run from September 18, 2018 to January 7, 2019

The Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) is seeking submissions of photo and video content that will inspire viewers to hold their business events in Japan. If you are a professional in the meetings industry or have attended meetings, conventions, incentives or trade shows in Japan, why not share some of your “Wow!” moments that you captured on film while in Japan?

The Japan Convention Bureau, a section of JNTO is working to promote Japan as an innovative and exciting destination to host international meetings, incentive tours, conventions and events. The slogan, “Japan. Meetings & Events – New ideas start here -” captures the essence of why organizations take their meetings to Japan: coming to Japan brings visitors into contact with the imagination and intelligence of Japan’s people and culture. This is how participants are empowered to gain inspiration and flashes of insight that enables future business growth.

Japan is a treasure trove of world-leading scientific and industrial knowledge and talent. These forces come together to create dynamic and vibrant industries across all fields. The country has produced numerous Nobel Prize winners, and it also has large numbers of corporate headquarters and research centres that possess cutting-edge technology. Japan has a unique culture that combines sophisticated and ancient traditional culture with innovative practices, which are complemented by a background of rich regional diversity. With many years of experience and a spirit of hospitality, high-quality conferences and events are put on with great success here. Japan is known for being one of the safest countries in the world with pristine public spaces so both business event organizers and participants can feel completely at ease whether they are master travellers or it’s their first time abroad.
