Sasebo to hold Business-Connect Seminar in late June

Following the success of a similar event in Wakayama in February, a second Business-Connect Seminar will be held on June 27 in Sasebo, sanctioned by the Nagasaki Prefectural Government and hosted by the Sasebo Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

“The Business-Connect seminar will focus on connecting both Sasebo and Kyushu’s private sector leaders with integrated resort operators and developers who are focused on the region. This will include presence by those operators seeking to develop a resort in Nagasaki, as well as those who see the Kyushu region as a potential opportunity for future investment and development,” the press release stated.

Kosei Tsuji, head of the Nagasaki Marine IR Promotion Council, added, “We are pleased to launch the Business-Connect seminar as the great opportunity to increase the awareness of the scale of IR development, and support for the integrated resort industry within the local private sector of Sasebo. It is important that local business leaders understand the full potential the industry brings to the region and are presented with opportunities to connect with international operators who may invest into our city.”

Marketing for the event is being handled by HOGO, in accordance with the agreement announced last month between the Macau-based marketing and communications company and the Sasebo Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
