Exclusively Kyoto… IMEX Stand B420 – Nintendo game based excursion launched in Kyoto and

Win a Nintendo DS with “Samurai Inside” game on Stand B420 at IMEX

Kyoto Convention Bureau member, Kyoto Toei Uzumasa Movie Studios, now offer business event and incentive groups an activity making the most of Nintendo’s DS game consuls and the city’s famous film studios.

Nintendo is based in Kyoto.

“As meetings and technology move closer together, this link between an household name and our city demonstrates that technology can also be used to make excursions and packages even more exciting.”  Kyoto Convention Bureau, international marketing manager, James Kent.

To celebrate the launch of this package, Kyoto Convention Bureau will be giving away a Nintendo DS as part of a prize draw during their visit to IMEX in May 2010.

Each delegate / Nintendo DS user can download the game to play onsite, interacting with whichever part of the studio’s set they are in.  The game takes the individuals on an adventure through the studios, during which they take on the role of Seizo Fukumoto, known in Japan as the man who has suffered more sword deaths than any other actor – but better known to cinema-goers worldwide as the Silent Samurai who trailed Tom Cruise in Hollywood’s 2003 hit The Last Samurai .

Normally users would have to travel all the way to Japan to download the game; however the Kyoto Convention Bureau give-away will have the Samurai pre-loaded!

Business events manager at the Kyoto Toei Uzumasa Movie Studios, Akihiro Miyazaki comments that this provides a whole new angle for meeting planners who charter the set for their event. “What better way to reward people than set them off on an adventure with a new Nintendo DS unit and then present it to them as a prize on successful completion of the mission?!”

Kyoto Convention Bureau will be exhibiting at IMEX 2010 in Frankfurt on stand B420 from 25-27 May.  Throughout the exhibition visitors to the stand will be invited to enter a prize draw to win a Nintendo DS.
