Participants encounter significant planning and operational complexities when engaging in one of the world's largest and longest events. Multi-year planning, multi-month operation, and a foreign environment all pose numerous challenges. During the planning phase, participants must focus on how best to represent their image and messages. In the operational phase, the focus shifts to maximizing the return on their Expo investment through cultural, business, and trade interactions. A major challenge is achieving these goals while staying focused on the detailed planning and operation of the Pavilion.
Our team, with extensive experience in operating Expos and other complex global events, especially in the specific environment of Japan, offers a range of services to help participants meet these challenges. Leveraging our team’s knowledge and experience will maximize the overall return from Expo 2025. Our behind-the-scenes and back-of-house planning and operation will enable participants to navigate freely in front of the house, allowing them to concentrate on their Expo 2025 mission: developing relationships, engaging with the host and other countries, and, most importantly, focusing on designing the future society for our lives.
Our team can assist in all projects, whether large or small, and some examples of the services are outlined on the other pages.
