Become a Sponsor for the 28th Japan-America Grassroots Summit in Washington State
September 18-24, 2018
What is the Grassroots Summit?
The Japan America Grassroots Summit is an annual large-scale exchange of Japanese and American people, held alternatively in Japan and America. The Summit aims to strengthen the peaceful relationship between our two countries by fostering friendship at the grassroots level.
See the event brochure for more information.
What am I Sponsoring?
Though the visitors pay their travel expenses and personal tour fees, we are raising $115,000 to provide proper welcome and farewell ceremonies. These ceremonies are important staples of the program and offer a wider international platform for exposure from program participants to high-level government representatives and diplomats.
Sponsors will receive admission to our opening and closing ceremonies and be recognized at both ceremonies, on our website, and on promotional materials leading up to the Summit.
Thank you to our Current Sponsors:
