4 MICE Industry Organizations Joint Networking Event

On Wednesday, February 14, 2024, four major Japanese MICE industry organizations joined forces to hold the “4 MICE Industry Organizations Joint Networking Event.“ This was the first time such an event was held jointly by the industry.
Nearly 200 people, far exceeding the set number of participants, attended from about 50 companies.
After an enthusiastic sports tournament befitting the MICE industry, there was a lively networking session, and the joint networking event was a great success.

Many young people from the industry participated in this event, and active networking took place through the sports and networking sessions. We will take this opportunity to further accelerate collaboration within the industry and strengthen our ability to disseminate information, and work together to boost the MICE industry in the future.
