Best of Japan snow heads to Sydney and Melbourne

Representatives of Japan’s Snow and Ski industry will attend the Snow and Adventure Travel Mart organised by Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) in Sydney and Melbourne in May.

The travel mart brings together delegates from Japan’s major snow resorts to engage with Australian travel agents and ski tour operators on the latest regional trends through business meetings and presentations.

The aim of the travel mart is to provide travel agents an opportunity to network and get information directly from the Japanese Ski Resorts through one-on-one discussions.

Executive Director of JNTO, Sydney Office, Ms. Mariko Tatsumi, believes the travel mart is instrumental in ensuring Australian travel agents are ready for the next ski season in Japan.

“The Australian ski market has always been an important focus of Japan tourism. With more and more Australians heading there every year, it’s crucial for travel agents to stay up-to-date on the latest developments, so they will have the knowledge and confidence to sell Japan ski holidays,” she said.

“The Snow and Adventure Travel Mart is the best chance Australian agents have to get in touch with Japanese suppliers and get the information they need.”

The event will also give attendees the opportunity to wins prizes such as hotel vouchers and a Sony digital camera.

The event will be held during daytime in Melbourne at the Novotel Hotel on Collins on the 23rd May, and at the Intercontinental Hotel in Sydney on the 30th May.

While RSVPs for pre-scheduled appointments close 12th May, those interested in attending the event can send their name, company name, position, contact email to
