BLEND BATCH 2 - TravelTech -

BLEND BATCH 2 - TravelTech -

    Embassy of Japan in Thailand, Digital Economy Promotion Agency (depa) and Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) are proudly co-hosting “Blend Batch 2 - TravelTech -” on 23 December 2019 from 8 am to 12 pm on 7th floor at depa.

    At the Embassy of Japan, we have been actively creating opportunities for collaboration between startups and big companies through our platform of “Open Innovation Columbus” program.

    After conducting preliminary events for this purpose, we have come to the realization that it is most useful to create a matching event focusing on a particular industry sector. In this regard we held "BLEND Batch 1" focusing on electronics and machinery sector.

    In this time, we are going to hold "BLEND Batch 2 - TravelTech - " in collaboration with Japanese and Thai travel related companies. We will give you an overview of Thailand's TravelTech startup ecosystem as well as the opportunity to meet very innovative traveltech startups in Thailand.

    * The event is to be conducted in English.
