Incentive award

The Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) announced the winners of the 2018 JAPAN Best Incentive Travel Awards: Comfort Travel Service Co. Ltd (Taiwan), Kulin Kumar Holidays Pvt. Ltd. (India), and JTB Australia Pty Ltd (Australia).

The winners of the 2018 edition of the JAPAN Best Incentive Travel Awards 2018 were invited to Japan, and on September 19, 2018, were recognised for their achievements at the award ceremony. Held at the Hotel New Otani Tokyo, the ceremony celebrated the attendees for their creativity and superb event planning. Each of the three winners shared the case study of their event with the audience and was presented with a crystal trophy. 

The winners also participated in a special familiarisation trip, enjoying an exclusive opportunity to visit inspiring activities and venues in Tokyo. They visited the “NIPPON GALLERY TABIDO MARUNOUCHI”(by Toppan Printing Co., Ltd.), the soon-to-be Olympic venue “New National Stadium”(under-construction), the Central Wholesale Market in Toyosu (scheduled to replace the wholesale Tsukiji Market in October 2018), and experienced a class by professional Noh Masters on how to move and sing according to the tradition of this ancient form of theatre.

The awards have been held every year since 2016. Please check the Japan Best Incentive Travel Awards website for information about the submissions process for 2019.
