J-Team and Granvia Hotel to promote Kyoto at AIME

J-Team and Granvia Hotel to promote Kyoto at AIME

Kyoto, one of Japan’s most popular business destinations, will be represented at the Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo (AIME) by the J Team and the Hotel Granvia.

The J Team - one of Japan’s most original and creative DMCs – and the Hotel Granvia will work in partnership at the event in Melbourne (February 21-22) to showcase Kyoto’s superb mix of heritage and culture as well as the variety of conference venues, hotels and restaurants.

Geraint Holt of the J-Team, says: “The opening of the J-Team’s office in Kyoto perfectly complements the activities in our Tokyo office, and has reinforced our conviction that the J-Team not only offers the most creative but also the most complete destination management service in Japan. Tokyo and Kyoto are yin and yang but combine to make Japan a superb MICE destination. In particular, the unique cultural and historic venues which Kyoto offers make every event and activity held there a potential highlight and lifelong memory. So when arranging an event, organisers should choose Japan, choose Kyoto and choose the J-Team.”

James Kent, Kyoto Convention Bureau’s international marketing manager comments: “AIME is a renowned event in the Asia-Pacific region, and we welcome the decision by the J Team and the Hotel Granvia to work in partnership to promote Kyoto. The city has so much to offer and events like this provide Kyoto with the opportunity to show event organisers how the mix of culture and diversity of venues makes Kyoto a leading business destination.”

Kyoto is consistently ranked as Japan’s second most popular city for meetings, conferences and events – and is increasingly the number-one choice for company incentive travel. Kyoto is one of the most accessible cities in Japan thanks to its proximity to Kansai International Airport gateway and its location on the Shinkansen bullet train line.
