In person events are obviously increasing again in Japan.
Hotel and Convention Centers are common choices for organizing B2B meetings or conferences. In Tokyo, there are new venues that were built for the Olympics, so, there is a lot of venues in Tokyo, and all over Japan as well.

Yuko and Colin said that they have been getting a lot of inquiries and discussion about doing physical events this year with their clients. And a lot of companies who are planning to organize their own event are targeting the same venues. The popular venues are being booked up to a half a year in advance. However, before COVID-19, for large-scale events, we used to book a year ahead. So, that means if you are going to have an event this year, you should find a venue and book it right now. Colin said, “you probably should have booked it yesterday!”

However, which venue is suitable for your event depends on your target or theme or what kind of event you want to plan etc. We have several event venues lined up, so we would like you to contact us for more information.

We hope you understand that Japanese people tend to plan things out, so it is better to allow a little leeway in order to plan properly.

*At hotels, they take COVID-19 infection prevention seriously. So, it is one of the better choices, especially when you plan to organize a large-scale event.

*We have also used a traditional Japanese banquet hall for B2B conferences and a temple for B2B events for welcome parties. Please feel free to contact us to find the suitable venue for your event.
