Digital technology utilization event Partial subsidy for small and medium-sized organizers September 27, 5:26
While various events have been canceled or postponed due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has paid for the organizers of events that use digital technology such as online business meetings to take on new initiatives. It was decided to assist a part.
Events such as large-scale product exhibitions are also a valuable opportunity for small and medium-sized enterprises to have business talks, but the spread of the new coronavirus has forced them to cancel or postpone them all.
For this reason, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has decided to support the organizers of relatively small-scale events and also aim to build a new business model for the event industry.
Specifically, we will subsidize part of the cost of holding an event for small and medium-sized organizers who are making new efforts using digital technology, such as holding business meetings online.
In addition, we would like to support the development of a system that enables online business negotiations while checking products three-dimensionally by utilizing VR = virtual reality, aiming to build a new business model for the event industry. It is said.
The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has a policy of requesting 500 million yen for the budget request for the next fiscal year as the project cost required for such efforts.
