Tokyo welcomes a large-scale Indonesian incentive

July 7, 2015

CASE STUDY: Tokyo welcomes a large-scale Indonesian incentive

A well-known Indonesian insurance company incentive group of 1,150 participants visited Tokyo during May 13-17, 2015 to enjoy the traditional and modern spots of Tokyo, the Japanese capital, as well as local cuisine and shopping at world-famous districts.

As one of the highlights of the event, the Gala Dinner was held on May 15 in the Konron Ballroom of the International Convention Center “Pamir” located in the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa.

Gorgeously appareled Indonesian participants were welcomed at the ballroom entrance by beautiful Japanese Kimono Girls, the entertainers from Asakusa, a traditional district in Tokyo. The participants were greatly impressed by the furisode* kimonos specially prepared as a treat. These pink-colored kimonos richly patterned with seasonal flowers are only worn in May during the Sanja Matsuri**.

The Gala Dinner began with the national anthem sang in unison. When the party was reaching the climax after the awards ceremony of the top performers of the year, the Ryoma String Quartet featuring a female singer, Mikiko-san, appeared on the stage. Being composed by traditional Japanese instruments and violin, the band played several numbers, specially arranged Indonesian melodies and songs. When the nationally famous “Coffee rumba” began, the participants joined the band to sing and dance to the music on the stage and the floor. They fully enjoyed the final night in Tokyo to their heart’s content.

As TCVB’s special offer, financial support was provided including airfare, accommodation fee, ground transportation for Tokyo study tours held in 2014 and arrangement for the cultural entertainment programs at the Gala Dinner such as Kimono Girls and Ryoma String Quartet.

Business Events Team did the very best to work as a point of contact for the local community in Tokyo by introducing the venues and suppliers as well as giving recommendation on the gifts to the participants. The big success of this Gala Dinner has proven that Tokyo has a great potential.

Welcome to a new AIME tradition

Welcome to a new AIME tradition

It will be a night of firsts as Hosted Buyers, Media and Exhibitors get together at the inaugural 2015 Asia Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo (AIME) Gala Dinner.

Attendees will be treated to an entertaining and fun night out at a distinctly Melbourne, yet-to-be-revealed waterfront events hub, Melbourne Convention Bureau (MCB) CEO, Karen Bollinger revealed today.

For the first time, the showcase social event will follow AIME on Wednesday, 25th February, rather than precede the show, which is all part of the new AIME experience.

“Those who have attended AIME in the past will notice a few changes this year, and our Gala Dinner is no different,” said Bolinger.

“We’ve shaken things up and refreshed the entire social and networking program, with a view of creating the most valuable experience for our AIME attendees.”

“Holding our major networking function at the end of AIME means buyers and sellers can continue the conversations and relationships developed during the previous two days.”

The new style of event, Bolinger continued, also provides a more intimate and relaxed environment for guests.

“In true Melbourne style, both the venue and the entertainment promise to reflect the city’s reputation as an energetic, vibrant and creative place of hidden gems,” Bolinger said.

“While both the location and the format are, for the time being, a well-kept secret, I can tell you that the 2015 AIME Gala Dinner will be strictly ‘wow’ and a not to be missed show.”

“I’m looking forward to an exciting evening filled with dazzling entertainment and fabulous food, at a unique and surprising venue – all of which is to me, very ‘Melbourne’,” she said.
