President and CEO, Space Media Japan
It is very positive for our organisation to be involved in the Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific event as the Event Partner. As the world knows, Japan will soon have some massive sports events to organise – 2019 Rugby World Cup as well as Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
In addition to this the Japanese Government has placed great emphasis on the innovation of the National Sports Industry including specific focus on the role of stadium and arena management. It is my opinion that this is the best timing to hold the event in Japan and we, Space Media Japan (part of the Congress Corporation), are very excited to be a part of this new industry.
