THE TOURISM SECTOR IN JAPAN

EU-Japan

Today more and more tourism sales and marketing are done online and a handful of global Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) appear to dominate the tourism sector.  Offline and other channels still hold good market shares; however, they are mostly small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) operating locally or regionally and facing increasing threats from those technology-based global giants. In this competitive sector, European SMEs need to design new products meeting traveller’s new needs and promote with new marketing tools.  This webinar will review market trends to pinpoint a niche market for EU SMEs; will reveal travellers’ new characteristics and needs; and will identify Japan as a desirable destination and propose new products for European leisure and business travellers. The webinar will conclude with recommendations as to how successfully European SMEs design and promote tourism experiences in Japan as a redefined product to European outbound travellers.
