■ Vpon JAPAN
In order to increase domestic consumption in travel, organizations need to identify their target consumers and then define the target’s needs, interests, lifestyle, and demographics. Then, organizations must develop and offer unique tourism packages and contents that cater to the target consumer.

These solutions include analytical insight on inbound travelers, the domestic travel industry, and outbound tourism.

The platform, while also making use of pamphlets and other existing media content, combines information from different sources on what's currently popular with travelers into a comprehensive format, letting travelers make decisions based on the most up-to-date information and more thoroughly enjoy the destination.
