More information and a registration link are on the event’s website, which says:

In 2021, JAXA and X-Nihonbashi will implement “X-NIHONBASHI Global Hub’21” which is a business matching program between Japan and the U.S. aiming to promote collaboration between Japanese and U.S. companies in the space domain, as well as entry from non-space domains. JAXA and X-Nihonbashi will be doing so in cooperation with NASA Ames Research Center.

For this program, we are planning a series of events throughout the year.
The first event, which will be the kick-off event, will have “The Future of US-Japan Collaboration in the Space Business Industry” as it’s main theme.

There will be an input session by a Japanese global analyst on the current status of the U.S. and Japanese markets regarding the space business and the importance of global partnerships.
In addition, a panel discussion will be held with NASA, JAXA, and Japanese and U.S. space related companies who all have extensive international experience to discuss the successes and challenges of U.S.-Japan partnerships on the topic of overseas business development, including some points that they learned in the process of concluding deals.
