The DMC will be represented by the Kyoto Convention Bureau at Imex in Frankfurt.
The DMC is based in Tokyo but it will focus on bringing overseas groups to Kyoto.
Kyoto Convention Bureau international marketing co-ordinator James Kent said: "A purely in-bound focus gives The J-Team the time and energy required to seek out the best Kyoto has to offer the MICE industry. As Japan's historic capital and a centre for culture, we offer groups a wealth of event opportunities."
