Aviareps extends in presence in Japan
AVIAREPS, the global leader in tourism, aviation, hospitality and trade promotion representation, has extended its market presence in Japan with the opening of its second office in this key market.
The newly opened Osaka office in western Japan will complement the services and activities offered by the Tokyo office, by providing localised expertise on the ground in Osaka, and professional services for organisations seeking to target the Greater Kansai region.
The Osaka office opening brings AVIAREPS’ international network to a total of 56 offices in 43 countries.
Says Michael Gaebler, Chairman & CEO AVIAREPS Group: “The opening of our second office in Japan is testimony to the increasing interest and desire of our international partners to secure an expanded and ever-deepening market presence in the world’s third largest economy. The exemplary performance and dedication of AVIAREPS’ Tokyo office to offer quality and bespoke marketing and public relations representation since its establishment in 2000 has
been exceptional. We are excited to now introduce this results-driven tailored approach with an on-the-ground presence in Osaka targeting the greater Kansai region including Kyoto, Hyogo, Nara, Shiga and Wakayama Prefectures.”
Heading the AVIAREPS Osaka office as Director is Masaki Sakamoto, whose decorated career includes over 30 years of experience in sales, advertising and marketing, including senior sales positions at Four Seasons Resorts Lana’i,
InterContinental Hotels, and the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau as well as previous positions with AVIAREPS as Director for Hawai’i Tourism Asia and Tourism Ireland Japan.
Since opening its doors, the AVIAREPS Osaka office has been conducting sales, marketing and public relations activities for the Dubai Department of Tourism, Commerce and Marketing (DTCM), Tahiti Tourisme and Tigerair Taiwan.
