Event / program overview
As one part of a familiarization trip program for meeting planners invited from Europe and North America, a reception was held at Tokyo Sea Life Park.
On the day of the event, 12 meeting planners were welcomed in front of the aquarium's large tank which houses Bluefin tuna. The Director gave a welcome speech which touched on the highlights of the facility and introduced some of the sea creatures living in the ocean around Tokyo.
Professionals working in the fields of meetings, incentive travel, conventions, and exhibitions/events (MICE) also had the opportunity to network while watching the fish, and the reception was based around the theme of a deep sea club. The event featured a variety of entertainment which made the most of the venue space and location bordering the ocean.
