Luxurique Inc. and Dentsu Live Inc. Launch a Joint Project Team to Address the Needs of the Inbound Market "INBOUND CREATIVE SOLUTION” 

PRESS RELEASE 

 

April 24, 2024 



Luxurique Inc. (Head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President: Naomi Mano; hereinafter "Luxurique") and Dentsu Live Inc. (Head office: Chuo-ku, Tokyo; President: Masahiko Takagi; hereinafter "Dentsu Live") have launched a project team "INBOUND CREATIVE SOLUTION" to address the needs of the growing inbound market.  


Since April 2023, when border measures for COVID-19 were eliminated, inbound travel to Japan rapidly recovered, with 25.07 million inbound travellers and 5,292.3 billion yen in inbound travel expenditures in 2023*, according to the Japan Tourism Agency, Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Travel and Tourism.  

 

The new National Tourism Promotion Basic Plan, approved by the government on March 31, 2023, set a goal of 60 million inbound travellers and 15 trillion yen in inbound tourism spending for 2030**. To achieve these high targets, there is a pressing need to secure specialised personnel for inbound travel and MICE*** for global companies and to develop and expand on experience content.
