David Scowsill, president and CEO of the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), will join Taleb Rifai, Secretary General of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) as featured speakers during the JATA International Forum (Sept. 13 and 14, 2013), under the four-day JATA TABIHAKU Travel Showcase 2013, set from Sept. 12 to Sept. 15, 2013 at BigSight in Tokyo.

Meanwhile, with travel as the buzzword, two unique Japanese pioneers of travel will speak at lectures on different days: Sept. 14: Yuichiro Miura, who early in 2013 climbed to the summit of Mt. Everest at age 80; and Sept. 15: Mamoru Mohri, a veteran astronaut who completed two NASA space shuttle missions.

The four-day event includes programs for travel industry professionals and consumers visiting the exhibition show.
