Other Information

Those who have already come to Japan Impact have certainly noticed that prices will be higher in 2017, and that new price categories are created to minimize the impact this will have on families. This is necessary, because the convention is moving to the Beaulieu Lausanne Convention Center. Indeed, our move created new expenses that we did not have while the convention took place in EPFL, such as rent of the convention grounds and rent of furniture. Our expenses are hence double those we had last year. Below is an explanatory chart of those expenses :



As you can see, new rent expenses are a very important portion of our budget. Furthermore, the communal tax in Lausanne is twice as high as the one we had in Epenex.

We have done everything we could to avoid an excessive increase in ticket prices. Since buying multiple tickets for a family can be very expensive, we have decided to create a “family” and a “children” ticket to make Japan Impact tickets more affordable to these categories of visitors.

We remind you that Japan Impact activities are completely free once you are inside (except for purchases of food drinks and commercial stall merchandise), therefore you will not pay for any of the activities, concerts or screenings organized by Japan Impact.

PolyJapan (the organizer of Japan Impact) is a non-profit EPFL student association, which aims to promote and make Japanese culture as accessible as possible, not to make money. None of the committee or staff are paid anything for the work they do for Japan Impact. It is our wish to be completely transparent towards you.
