Total Access Japan: Travel Tech - Market Trends and Update on Travel Tech Related Regulations

Seminar | November.21.2019 | 6:00pm - 7:30pm (Tokyo Standard Time)

Orrick Tokyo


Orrick's Total Access Japan Event Series provides entrepreneurs business, tactical, and legal education through complimentary panels and seminars and networking events.

Recently, the Rugby World Cup Japan 2019, the first ever Rugby World Cup to take place in Asia, was a great success along with the breakthrough of the Japanese team on the field. With the 2020 Olympic Games to take place in Tokyo for the first time in 56 years, and Expo to take place in 2025 in Osaka for the first time in 55 years, as well as the opening of integrated resorts scheduled in mid-2020, the Japanese tourist industry is expected to grow. Additionally, with the lack of luxury accommodation and activities targeting high-net-worth tourists in Japan, the development of a new type of business is also expected to arise.

Meanwhile, digitalization has facilitated the planning of a short business trip or a long holiday in a foreign country. With just a few clicks, travelers are now able to research information on a city, book flights, reserve hotels and/or short-stay vacation rental properties.

Featuring experienced players in the field such as KKDay, a travel booking platform at the forefront of travel tech and GOYOH Inc., a provider of Japan-related services to global high-net-worth individuals, this session will discuss the impact of technologies on these industries, the Japanese market and future opportunities, and the areas where these industries can be improved in Japan. Partners from our Tokyo office will also discuss recent legislative developments related to travel tech in Japan.

There will be drinks and light snacks with time set aside for questions and answers. We hope you will be able to join this session.
