Press Release – Cool Japan Business Matching Seminar

Amended Press Release: Cool Japan Business Seminar 2016

Organized by the Cool Japan Public-Private Partnership Platform, co-sponsored by Japan External Trade Organization(JETRO) and with support of The Association of Japanese Animations and Anime Japan, this initiative targets outstanding manufacturers and service companies in Japan and world-famous content creation companies in anime and character making.

Cool Japan Business Seminar 2016 will contain information on the latest trends of business matchmaking for companies in different fields alongside a partner matching networking session. The seminar and event will be held at Tokyo Big Sight. Cyest Corporation (based in Minato Ward, Tokyo with President Yoshinao Tsukasaki), which provides international business development services, will be the coordinating office to attract companies to join the seminar and event.


One effective way to create new consumer markets for “Cool Japan” overseas is for companies in different industries to partner and create innovative products and services. The Cool Japan Public-private Partnership Platform has planned an event for companies in manufacturing/services and content creation to meet each other and deepen their mutual understanding. As a result, they can start business projects to develop products having high PR value or to execute effective promotion. A seminar featuring Cool Japan experts in Japan and overseas will be held along with a business card exchange event for companies in different fields. They will be held during Anime Japan 2016 ( that attracts over 120,000 people. For companies who have highly appealing products and want to partner with content creators but do not know how or companies who have never thought of hooking up with content creators, this opportunity will improve their understanding of hooking up with different fields and doing it.


Application for corporate participation is now open.

Companies who are interested in success stories of partnering with content creators, who have a very marketable product and want to create a new consumer market, or who want to expand their sales overseas are welcome to see the website below. (*If the number of applicants exceeds the limit, participants will be determined through a lottery.)
