Tom Nieman, JCM’s Vice President of Global Marketing, said: “I think for the first time the political planets in Japan are aligned in terms of gaming and we are extremely excited about the opportunity of being able to bring our industry home. It’s going to be an exciting time in May and Clarion’s timing for the Congress could be perfect. We see ourselves not just as a commercial partner, but also as something akin to a cultural ambassador – we are fluent in both Japanese and gaming.
