Press release from: Vision-Box

Vision-Box, the global provider of biometric-based digital identity solutions, and the world's first developer of facial recognition-based travel experiences, expands reach in Asia-Pacific to the Far East, opening new office and Center of Excellence in Tokyo, Japan:
"Vision-Box aims to increase market presence in Asia-Pacific and drive the future innovation projects in seamless travel and identity management in the region. We want to be partners and change-makers in the modernization of airport operations in Japan", commented CEO Miguel Leitmann.

The inauguration has been celebrated through the organization of a special Seamless Travel Lab seminar and workshop with market experts. For the first time ever in Japan, airports, airlines and government representatives had the chance to interact with Vision-Box state-of-the-art Seamless Travel technology, already being deployed at some of the most innovative airports in the world, such as Sydney, Amsterdam Schiphol, Los Angeles International Airport and Dubai International Airport.

This inauguration event marked the first of many gatherings of the leading Travel actors in the region to discuss trends and opportunities in Airports’ Digitization, towards successful airport operations in modern-day Japan ‒ this is the main Reason for Being of this Excellence center, its Ikigai, as said in Japan. The new location will be a cross-sector platform for business activities and development projects in Digital Airport and Seamless Travel technology innovation.

The growth of the Japanese market is foreseeing one of the largest changes in both domestic and international passenger numbers. Undergoing an unprecedented growth rate, Japan will welcome more than 40 million overseas passengers by 2020, according to figures from the United Nations World Tourism Organization, with a forecasted total 8.2 billion passengers crossing the skies by 2037. Vision-Box is now well positioned to support this exponential growth and be a driver of the modern passenger experience and future proof aviation in Japan.

Vision-Box is ready to become a strategic and consistent partner that helps Japan in its aviation development commitments to modernization programmes and policies – most notably The International Civil Aviation Organization’s ‘No Country Left Behind’ assistance and capacity-building Initiative, and the International Air Transport Association’s One ID initiative. In Japan, Vision-Box will continue to be an advocate for these organizations to promote and deliver a safe, secure and efficient air transport ecosystem to the country.

"Vision-Box is now even closer to Japan’s airports, airlines, government and other key stakeholders. This helps us to cater to their specific needs, modernize their processes, and deliver first-class digital identity, biometrics and privacy management solutions", says Koichi Mikami, Managing Director of Vision-Box in Japan.
