WiT Virtual: Japan, As The Rising Sun Emerges

July 3, 2020 | 4:00 pm 5:15 pm



WiT Japan was launched in 2012 in response to the terrible Tohuku earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in March 2011. Our partners wanted an event to rally the industry together, and we became the bridge between Japan and the rest of the world at a pivotal time.


On July 3, we would have returned to Tokyo for our eighth edition but unfortunately we can’t be there physically. This event will once again be the bridge between Japan and the rest of the world at another moment in history, when the industry is facing its biggest test with Covid-19.


WiT will bring updates from the region to our Japanese friends and we will get updates from key Japanese travel leaders on what’s been happening within their markets. We will blend global perspectives with local insights and connect the dots, as only WiT can.
