About

WIT Japan & North Asia 2018 will celebrate Better Travel. It will take on what's new in the region and blend it with exciting and inspirational new ideas from around the world to create real insights you can act upon to get better at what you do in travel.

In pursuit of Better Travel, WIT Japan & North Asia 2018 will celebrate the five values of Openness, Diversity, Creativity, Love and Respect.

• Open minds, open world, open platforms.
• Diversity in workforce, diversity in humanity, diversity in experiences.
• Creativity in thought, creativity in marketing, products and services
• Building things with love, treating customers and staff with love
• Respect for communities and environment 

Better Technology. Better Experiences. Better Businesses. Better People. Better Travel.

Come join us create Better Travel in Tokyo in 2018.

 

Why attend

In October 2017, it saw a 21.5% increase in arrivals to 2,595,148 and the total number for 2017 was projected to reach 28.7 million, ahead of target.

The first disclosure of how many tourists are using private accommodation revealed that it accounted for 12% of total visitors. Singaporeans were the biggest users (40%) in October, followed by France (36%) and Indonesia (30%).

China remains the biggest influencer of travel trends in North Asia, from Seoul to Taipei as Chinese brands expand beyond their home markets, bringing a new wave of innovation.

What's happening in North Asia as new players enter travel, incumbents defend turf, low cost airlines spread their wings and traditional travel companies evolve their business models for the mobile age?

How are travel brands in Japan adapting their business models? How are destinations persuading travellers to explore beyond the usual tourist hotspots?
