The first Japan IR Expo in Yokohama has been scheduled for January 29 and 30, 2020, moving quickly after Mayor Fumiko Hayashi declared that her city would be joining the IR licensing race.
This event is the latest in the series of IR Showcases and IR Expos organized by Innovent Inc. Previous events in the series have been held in Osaka and Hokkaido, but this will be the first major IR expo of any kind to be held in Yokohama.
The press release commented, “While the birth of the IR market is approaching, we have decided to hold an exhibition that brings together products and services indispensable for Japanese IRs in response to the growing demand for trade fairs from the business world. This is an industrial trade fair specializing in Integrated Resorts that will be held for the first time in the Tokyo metropolitan area.” (AGB Nippon)
