Thinking about the next-generation tourism industry that needs a change in business model after the corona disaster
[Details of this matter]
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government aims to improve the management capabilities of tourism-related businesses and revitalize the tourism industry. We are providing support for the development of new educational programs for those engaged in
Recently, due to the impact of the new coronavirus, a change in business model is required, and it is expected that the
next-generation tourism business will need to shift from a “supply model” to a “demand creation model.” This project, which was adopted this time, aims to develop human resources who can create demand, so to speak, with entrepreneurship (the spirit of creating new points of contact with society, not defined only by entrepreneurs). In addition to repeatedly inputting and outputting through academic and business frameworks, aiming to acquire entrepreneurship, guest speakers who are involved in regional management as practical role models share knowledge, study tours by volunteers, and lectures for the next generation of regional managers. After that, we plan to organize a community where we can interact with each other.
Ultimately, we will try to develop educational content, including video archives of all 10 courses, and develop programs and teaching materials.
