 Demand for tourism, encouraged by the national travel subsidy program and easing of border control for inbound tourists, will certainly make a swift recovery in Kansai, which is host to several development projects including Expos and IRs (integrated restorts). We as tourism operators are now trying look at life after corona in order to adapt to the new lifestyle and to update, realizing more value-added projects. I would like you to make this “Hoteres Japan in Kansai 2023/FOODEX JAPAN in Kansai 2023” a fruitful opportunity to find your solutions through the wide variety of exhibitions of the latest products, solutions, and more.
