Gathering information from various source and analyzing them from different perspective is very important. The ICCA database is a very reliable source when gathering information like this. Due to Covid-19, I was given more time to concentrate on doing research, -something I didn’t have before the pandemic. I hope to use these information to attract more events in Chiba, to develop a closer ties with local stakeholders towards the expansion of local businesses and to contribute in the economy as a whole.
