Japan and Business interested professionals:
BIS x BIJ events aim to help you make substantive contacts that turn into real relationships, as well as build and nurture a community both online and offline
This months theme is COMIC CON! Yes, this “multi-genre entertainment and comic convention held annually in San Diego, California.” is finally coming to the country that probably most naturally identifies with such an Event!
Speaking this month is Mitsuaki Munegumi (Mune) CEO of Tokyo Comic Con. (for around 10 mins)
Also CEO of Hollywood Collector’s Gallery – ‘HCG’ manufacturers and distributes Hollywood movie merchandise, especially hi-end products like movie prop-replicas. HCG has been producing DC Comic and other superhero items, too.
Recognizing changes in customer preferences, Mune-san decided to organize his own Hollywood Convention (HollyCon) in 2012, with the first guest from Hollywood being Christopher Lloyd, known as DOC BROWN in Back To The Future.
The 10th HollyCon will have been held August 27 & 28, the two days before Mune-san’s talk with us! In his talk, he will explain about the Comic Con event, his collaboration with Steve Wozniak and how the first Tokyo Comic Con came about. The Tokyo Comic Con will be a unique blend of US and Asian pop cultures. Mune-san will of course give us a bit of a sneak peek about which Hollywood stars are coming.
Second Speaking Spot OPEN If you or your company would be interested in being involved with Tokyo Comic Con and indeed you would be interested in speaking along side Munegumi-san about something keenly relevant to Comic Con and it’s fans, please contact us ASAP! Equally if this is the type of event your business would like to be involved with as a sponsor, please also let us know.
And finally, let’s not forget Cosplay…..feel free to dress up!!
