The Japan Convention Bureau, a division of the Japan National Tourism Organization, established its fifth international MICE office in Paris beginning April 2017 as an addition to its global team of specialists. The Paris convention specialist, Mr. Aurélien Bandini, will be the main point of contact for association meeting planners in France, Belgium and Monaco.
Associations can now enjoy more direct advice on appropriate venues for their events, ideas for social programs or incentive tour itineraries and provision of promotional materials, such as brochures, videos, images and other resources. The appointment of a specialist in Paris makes JNTO even more accessible as it facilitates communication between host cities and local organising committees.
Ms. Kawasaki, Executive Director of JNTO, says: “Japan has always been a popular destination for European meetings and JNTO can now provide more targeted support to French-speaking meeting planners with our new MICE office in Paris.”
