Connections Luxury Tokyo to Run in November 2022

Connections, the international private community for trusted decision-makers in luxury travel, will host its third bespoke event in partnership with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Tokyo Convention and Visitors Bureau this autumn.

Connections Luxury Tokyo will run from 13-16 November 2022 and will showcase the destination’s finest luxury product to 30 selected global travel buyers. The event will be the first B2B luxury travel event to take place in Tokyo since the pandemic.

Luxury buyers will meet with leading suppliers including hotels, venues and experience providers using the ‘Connections Way’ – a pioneering approach to facilitating long-lasting business relationships through memorable, shared experiences. During one-to-one business meetings, delegates will be able to enjoy authentic, local experiences that showcase Tokyo’s culture, cuisine and luxury offering.

Kazuomi Yamashita, tourist promotion department director for Tokyo Convention and Visitors Bureau, said: “Connections Luxury Tokyo 2022 will be the first event since the pandemic to showcase the destination to global luxury agencies. It will be pivotal to the recovery of our tourism industry.

“We are thrilled to once again welcome luxury travel buyers to our ever-evolving city, and we are confident that this event will make a substantial contribution to both buyers and Tokyo suppliers to rebuild their network and kick-start business.”

Greg Reeves, managing director of Connections, added: “We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with Tokyo Convention and Visitors Bureau to deliver the third edition of this bespoke event.

“Since 2020, Tokyo has been consistently preparing and waiting to welcome guests from around the world, and we recognise the importance of Connections Luxury Tokyo in supporting the recovery and resurgence of the city’s tourism industry. It remains a key destination for the luxury traveller, and we are looking forward to presenting its unique experiences first-hand to our luxury buyers.”
