Japan Weekend 2016 – Press Conference
The BIG GUNS are here & working together to make this event happen despite a bit of 11th hour stuff… which we all know is NOT their style. Who are the ‘big guns’? Who is ‘in da house’ today?? Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO), Foundation for Promotion of Music Industry and Culture (PROMIC), Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), MANGA Festival Executive Committee, Tourism Authority, Japan National Tourism Organisation (JNTO). Now I feel like calling this team “the powers that be” that can green light any JPOP concert, Manga artist Appearance, mascot appearance etc. Very powerful, they are… so Yoda would say.
Doing stuff in a rush or at the last minute is really not the trend fancied by the Japanese folks so I am stoked they went ahead and still did this event. We get an amazing MANGA artist meet & greet with current popular titles + publishers, we get a MANGA exhibition… we get a free J POP Signature artist concert!! DAMN!!
A big thanks to SOZO too the same folks who brought us AFA – ANIME FESTIVAL ASIA. Looking forward to 2017.. hopefully it will happen at a better time!
