In another milestone step promoting tourism, Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) participated in the four-day Tourism Expo Japan 2018 that was held during September 20-23, 2018 at Tokyo Big Sight.
The four-day expo offered a great platform for representatives in exhibiting their potential tourism destinations.
As part of their efforts to project Nepal as a perfect destination for Japanese, Nepal’s representatives informed participants about the country’s latest tourism updates, especially the Nepal Airlines connecting Kathmandu and Tokyo with direct flight very soon.
The participants hoped that the ongoing developments will ensure Japanese travelers, an easy communication and direct access to Nepal in the near future.
The expo served as an ideal platform for travel professionals, offering them a platform for information exchange, business meetings and other sessions they presented to inspire consumers about the travel experience.
The event also saw wide varieties of presentations that showcased diverse travel & lifestyle and related trends emerging out of that.
Besides NTB, Nepal Airlines and four private tourism operators: Around The Himalayas, Liberty Holidays, Hotel Shambala and Netra Travels and Tours backed Nepal’s participation at the expo.
Nepal-Japan tourism cooperation holds high significance majorly because of their commonalities in spirituality, Buddhist culture, among others, which make Japanese the most usual travelers to most-sought travel destinations of Nepal.
Besides, Japanese travelers also hold high spending power, which makes it beneficiary for Nepal tourism revenues.
Now, the two countries are eagerly waiting for the Tourism Expo Japan 2019 that is scheduled to take place in Osaka, Japan from October 24-27, 2019.
Nepal is currently riding high on its goal of achieving 2 million tourist arrivals. As part of its strategy, the country has been serious about drawing arrivals from close neighbors.
Another recent move in this regard was the appointment of politician-turned Indian actress Jaya Prada as its new goodwill ambassador to India.
It’s really exciting to watch what more Nepal will do to achieve its ‘2 million tourist arrival target’ as part of its ‘Visit Nepal Year 2020’.
