ABC Ark, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2020, will use the monthly magazine “History People” brand and the company’s know-how to discover and solidify the region’s “attractive cultural resources centered on history”. We are promoting regional revitalization projects that widely convey the charm of the region both domestically and internationally through the creation of quality “contents”.
In addition, Pony Canyon has developed a regional revitalization business since 2015, utilizing entertainment content planning and production, promotion know-how cultivated over more than 50 years. In June 2017, the entertainment industry’s first specialized department “Area Alliance Department” was created, focusing on collaboration with ministries and agencies, local governments, and regional corporations, and has completed more than 300 projects by this year.
Ayumu Nomura, ABC Ark Business Director, said, “Our company’s expertise and media power in the area of historical content, and the entertainment expression and appeal of Pony Canyon, which has collaborated with many regions, will contribute to this business alliance. By boosting it, we want to push the utilization of history, the most sustainable cultural resource, into the mainstream of regional revitalization measures.” By combining resource utilization methods with our company’s resources, we will solve the historical resource utilization issues faced by the region and accelerate regional revitalization based on them.”
In addition, the two companies have decided to collaborate in Tarui Town, Gifu Prefecture, Numazu City, Shizuoka Prefecture, etc. Details will be lifted soon.
