Background

On July 20, 2018, the Specific Complex Tourism Facilities Area Development Bill, the so-called IR (Integrated Resorts) Bill, passed and was approved by the Diet. As a result, the development of complex tourism facilities including casinos to realize staying type tourism will progress in Japan.

Although we still do not know which cities will be the first three limited places, Osaka - Kansai, among the many candidate cities, has been working on attracting IR to the artificial island Yumeshima from early.

Under such circumstances, we decided to hold Japan's first exhibition for the IR industry "1st JAPAN IR EXPO in Osaka" aiming at revitalizing and developing IR, a whole new industry for Japan.

Through this exhibition, it is hoped that the Japanese IR industry will develop soundly and that the development of the "Japanese type IR" will promptly progress, which can attract a large number of tourists from all over the world.
