TOKYO Convention & Visitors Bureau last month refreshed its subvention programmes for planners who hold their events in the Japanese capital.
Corporate groups with at least 50 attendees staying for a minimum of two nights in Tokyo, but are still choosing additional destinations, are entitled to rewards based on a tiered system according to group size.
Delegates within a group of 50 will receive a giveaway per person, while groups of 200 or more will receive a gift, choice of party entertainment from ninjas to awaodori dance performances and welcome parties at Tokyo’s airports.
Groups consisting of 500 or more attendees will receive the same benefits but with an extra choice between a traditional noh performance or a pop culture one.
The event must be held in Tokyo by March 31, 2015 and cannot be affiliated with religious or political agendas.
The second subvention programme is for key decision makers of events with more than 500 delegates planning to stay two or more nights in Tokyo, for a site visit in the city.
The CVB’s support extends to three decision makers who will have their airfare and accommodation sponsored. The site visit must be completed by March 31, 2015 and the event held before March 31, 2016.
