Upon providing an overview of relevant B2C market trends and Covid19-related opportunities for EU SMEs on the Japanese market, this webinar presents a critical discussion of distribution and sales channels on the Japanese B2C market, and practical guidance on how to evaluate the different sales channels and options for market entry.
Prescriptions for how to do business in the Japanese B2C sector are largely the same that dominated Western thinking three decades ago, as if Japan has not moved on. Based on case studies of European brands entering the Japanese B2C market, a clear picture will emerge that the conventional ‘push strategy’ does not work well in the current and future Japanese market. In this webinar we will discuss several company cases to introduce pull strategy as a very effective way for European SMEs to enter the Japanese B2C market.
The webinar targets EU companies seeking a fresh perspective on market entry strategy for Japan.
Registration deadline: 9 January 2023
