The event was held in various venues. The main venue was the Okinawa Convention Centre, while the welcome reception was held at the Hilton Okinawa Chatan Resort and networking events were held in a third nearby venue. The arrangement of holding in various venues was to give delegates an authentic Okinawan experience during the networking events and tours of the island.
Rebecca Teale, senior host and project manager, UBM, commented, “The peripatetic nature of the events means that we are always looking for new suppliers. This time it was compounded by the fact that Okinawa is some distance from the Japanese mainland. However, we took guidance from our host, the Government of Okinawa Prefecture, and UBM Japan to overcome this.”
The next edition of Routes Asia will held at Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in Australia, from 18th to 20th March 2018.
