On Saturday, July 2024, 7, the Information Management Study Group at Keiai University (Inage-ku, Chiba City) will hold a symposium titled "Airport Town Development in the Digital Age." In addition to learning about the further functional enhancements that Narita International Airport is aiming for against the backdrop of the digital age, participants will also have a deeper discussion about the direction of town development that Chiba Prefecture should aim for with the airport at its core.

 International airports, which are highly convenient and have sufficient capacity, are important transportation and logistics infrastructure, and at the same time, they create jobs in many industries. As the starting point and destination for people and goods, they generate demand in related industries such as transportation, logistics, and tourism, contributing to the revitalization of local economies.

 At Narita International Airport, the number of passengers on both international and domestic flights has increased since the COVID-2023 pandemic was moved to Category 5 in XNUMX, and plans are being made to build new runways and improve airport access to meet future demand. At the symposium "Airport Urban Development in the Digital Age," participants will learn about the further functional enhancements that Narita International Airport is aiming for, and will deepen discussions on the direction of urban development that Chiba Prefecture should aim for, with the airport at its core.

 The program is divided into two parts.
