Why Sponsor JMEC

By becoming a sponsor of the Japan Market Expansion Competition (JMEC), your organization demonstrates its commitment to community-based initiatives, thereby strengthening your brand's equity and customer trust in both the foreign and Japanese business communities. Your support also allows us to keep our costs low so that we may continue to help businesses and individuals become well-educated, productive members of the business community.

Additional benefits of sponsorship include:

  • Exposure to over 15,000 foreigners and Japanese through various networking organizations, chambers of commerce and JMEC events such as program information sessions and the annual JMEC Awards Ceremony.

  • Media exposure to over 80,000 foreigners and Japanese through such outlets as Metropolis magazine.

  • Presence in JMEC marketing efforts including logo placement on the JMEC website, JMEC brochures, JMEC's quarterly newsletter and on sponsor boards at JMEC events.

  • Opportunity for employees to receive business training through JMEC at little or no cost.

How It Works

JMEC has a wide range of sponsors and sponsorship agreements, including cash donation and in-kind services. Once a donation has been made to JMEC, an organization is considered a JMEC sponsor from the time of donation until the Awards Ceremony to be held the following year (July 1 - 1st week of June). For example, if a company donates prizes for the JMEC winning team in May of 2013, the company will remain a sponsor of the program through the first week of June 2014, and will receive all benefits of the organization's corresponding sponsorship level for the duration of that time period.
