Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) is inviting travel agents and wholesalers to join its 2021 virtual road in November, to connect with Japanese suppliers, skill up, take home a Japanese souvenir and possibly win yourself the grand prize.

Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) says it’s excited to announce the launch of its 2021 virtual roadshow.

Kicking off in November, the roadshow will consist of two specially crafted virtual events, designed to connect agents and wholesalers with local suppliers to better equip them with the tools to sell Japan, once international travel resumes.

Hosted through TravTrade’s virtual events platform and coordinated by GTI, the sessions will provide attendees with updates on the destination, the opportunity to connect with local suppliers – one-on-one meetings for wholesalers and group training sessions for agents – with all attendees receiving a Japanese themed participation gift. 

The agent event will also include an interactive origami demonstration and the chance to win a grand prize for a Japanese experience in Australia or New Zealand, valued at $1,000.
