In line with government’s call to embrace the new normal and maintain social distancing, JEMY 2020 is set to go online to ensure safety of our exhibitors, artistes, staff and visitors,” added Yupharet. This is both a pragmatic response to the current situation and a major initiative for participants to reach out to global audience.The event will be creating history as the “THE FIRST ALL JAPAN VIRTUAL EVENT IN ASIA”.
Last year ‘s inaugural event was a star-studded affair that drew more than 180,000 crowd to Pavillion, Kuala Lumpur. The floor was abuzz with fans cheering for the worldwide viral sensation, AKB48 and 75 other Japanese artistes. The shoppers were entertained with a perfect blend of Japanese culture, martial arts, cosplay, food, travel and education.
Organized by G-Yu Creative Co.,Ltd, JEMY 2020 is committed to boost unfettered trade for Japanese products and foster good relationship between Malaysia and Japan. The pandemic has caused a major shift for the worldwide business community with many being unable to resume normal business operations during lockdown. It brought travel to a standstill. Amid the ongoing changes, this virtual event will be an opportunity for the business fraternity to reach more customers and gain revenue. The online international trade provides a platform of quality and specialty products that covers 6 major categories, such as anime, art & fashion, F& B, travel, and education .
In addition, JEMY 2020 allows cross-border e-commerce activities allowing exhibitors to explore new possibilities to connect to worldwide audience from Malaysia, Japan, Thailand, etc. The expo will be broadcasted live on JEMY’s Facebook and Youtube pages enabling a mass reach of 1 million audience. This includes a 15 minutes live stream slot for exhibitors.
The audience will be able to immerse themselves and experience Japanese traditions, culture and art through a virtual sensory journey. Cosplay and fashion parade, manga, origami, kyudo will be among the exciting activities. In addition, JEMY 2020 will enable buyers to communicate directly with exhibitors on their official website or other platforms deemed convenient for both parties.
Since staying in is the new going out, we have mobilized all forces to ensure that the star-studded concert is hosted online and fans still get to stream the brilliant performances of their favourite artiste. “With a unique message “TOGETHER WE ARE ONE, we want to help people to take their minds off the massive challenges faced now,” explained Yupharet.
“We are continously improving technical and supporting services to enhance the online experience of all exhibitors and visitors. We vow to hold a memorable JEMY 2020 with significance through special measures in this unprecedented time.
