SIETAR Kansai is offering this event as its July 2017 meeting. It is special because it is a two-day conference with three plenary speakers, several international business-related and educational presentations, posters, an intercultural workshop and a panel discussion. This is certainly a value-added SIETAR Kansai meeting. While this conference is mainly organized by the Business Communication SIG of JALT, SIETAR Kansai has been included in the preparations.
