The WSTA and DIT Tokyo working in partnership with local industry experts, are inviting you to a WSTA ‘Members Only’ webinar about exporting to Japan.


Following an introduction by WSTA and DIT, a presentation will follow by Takeshi Itani of Sake Experience Japan, who has extensive experience working with local and imported brands and categories in the Japanese Market.


Ian Hafferty of Distinctive Drinks, who has worked on export projects with a variety of companies looking to enter Japan and other Asian markets, will also be on hand to offer his experience and advice to companies on exporting to Tokyo and beyond.


Expect to receive a market overview of the latest trends by category, to learn how Covid-19 has impacted the drinks market in Japan and also hear what the latest in-market promotions look like and what is getting through to the Japanese end-consumer.


The experts’ presentation will be followed by an opportunity to take part in a live Q&A, allowing you to try find answers to the questions of most importance to your business.
