YOKOHAMA Networking Session for Foreign Companies 2019NEW!

The city of Yokohama is going to offer the annual event “YOKOHAMA Networking Session for Foreign Companies.” It is a great opportunity for foreign affiliated companies to have networking with various companies.

This is the third year since the event started, and we focus on “AI” this year. The use of “AI” not only helps daily works to be more efficient, but also solves problems as lack of human resources. The potential of AI in business is larger than ever. In this event, “IBM Japan, Ltd.” and “MACNICA, Inc.”, companies well known in the field of AI, are going to have presentations to show how to apply AI in yours business.

Please join the event also for the networking with international companies in Yokohama. We hope to see you in the event.
