From Wednesday, July 14 to Friday, July 16, 2021, Osaka saw the return of the Hotel & Restaurant Show at INTEX Osaka as the 13th "Hoteres," held alongside FOODEX Japan in Kansai.

In order to promote the revival of the MICE industry that will come from Osaka and to instigate economic recovery, the Osaka Convention & Tourism Bureau strives to support the organizers of all current and future MICE events.
