VDZ Digital Publishers‘ Tokio/Japan Tour 2015

08.-11. November 2015

Why you should care about this tour

When it comes to digital trends and innovation, Japan is THE most interesting country in this region. 2014 “the Land of the Rising Sun” was ranked number 1 in Thomson Reuters Innovation Hot Spot Ranking. Nowhere else in the world is the mobile monetization rate higher than here! Looking at Japans e-commerce industry, almost 50% of all purchases are made by mobile phone. Forrester states that the internet access through mobile devices is with 47% twice as high than in the US.

Big players like LINE (one of the fastest growing instant messengers) and DeNA (the strongest revenue based mobile games platform in the world) were founded here. Additional stops on our tour include also traditional publishing houses, in particular Asahi Publishing and Kadokawa that are both heavily investing in the online business.
