Major Events International to run Japan trade mission during Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2016

Major Events International (MEI) – which has been working with Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2016 on a number of conference panel sessions – will also be running a Trade Mission to Japan during the event.

Attendees at next month’s Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2016 event will not only have the opportunity to visit MEI’s exhibition stand, where they can get advice and introductions from MEI’s expert team, but they can also benefit yet further by extending their visit to take advantage of the bespoke MEI programme, which compliments the objectives of Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2016.

On August 31, 2016, trade mission delegates can attend a pre-mission briefing and training session on how best to succeed in Japan. For more information about how to maximise your time and cost investment for this or indeed future visits, please register your interest by getting in touch with MEI direct (contact details can be found below). As part of the additional MEI trade mission package, you will be offered a full debrief on the visit, establish what steps need to be taken to progress your plans in Japan and outline the range of in-country and wider support available to you.

One of the main goals of the trade mission is to ensure that delegates leave with a detailed market orientation with insights to local culture and behaviours. The programme commences on Sunday 25 September with a conducted tour and social programme. Thereafter, delegates will follow the main Stadia & Arena Conference and Expo programme, which will be complimented by some-out-of-hours MEI-only delegate networking.

On conclusion of Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2016, MEI delegates will be treated to a special networking drinks reception being hosted in Tokyo, where those involved in business support and other stakeholders will gather to gain new local contacts. The following day, there will be the opportunity for MEI delegates to speak on panels about their experiences, lessons learned and objectives for working in Japan, in front of local companies who are seeking partners with expertise. This event will be attended by as many key officials as possible, including sponsors of the Rugby World Cup and Olympics, where they too have business needs.

The visit will be reported on social media and feature in pre-visit and post-visit reports, which will be sent to the major event key stakeholders in line with normal MEI practice in other countries and regions. This ensures that the exposure received from attendance at Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2016 is enhanced by involvement in the MEI trade mission, which is available for all to access.

If you wish to access this highly bespoke support, either for the August 31 pre-mission briefing and training or for the mission being held during next month’s Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific event, please get in contact with MEI direct, who can explain how their partnership with both the event and our PanStadia & Arena Management magazine will accelerate your success in Japan.
