I recently spent a day talking business with Garin Dart, principle at Bluesilver K.K. in Tokyo, and was quite impressed with his business philosophy, which seems to be a simple one: provide great service at a reasonable price, and do it with honesty and integrity. Garin gives his honest assessment of a situation and only gets behind ideas that he himself would stand behind. Many people will tell you what you want to hear in order to get the sale, so Garin’s integrity is what makes Bluesilver unique, and valuable, in my opinion. Honyaku Plus has provided Bluesilver with interpreters for some of their events, and interpreting services usually come with large equipment costs. But in each case, Garin worked out the best deal for his client, by cutting these costs as much as possible without cutting the quality. I highly recommend Bluesilver to anyone trying to hold an event in Japan or in need of assistance getting started here. In addition to straight-up event management, Bluesilver can help with booth design and construction at trade shows and other events.
