LINE CONFERENCE 2019 official website: (Japanese)




Since launching the LINE messaging app in June 2011, LINE’s corporate mission of “Closing the Distance” has driven development of a diverse range of services and businesses to transform the LINE app into a gateway for an all-encompassing "Smart Portal"—connecting everything from people to services (both online and offline), as close as they want, wherever they are, 24/7.


In the upcoming LINE CONFERENCE 2019, talks will cover future developments and new services for the LINE messaging app—the cornerstone of the Smart Portal—as well as each of LINE's different businesses: the Core Business of advertisements, entertainment, news, the Strategic Businesses of FinTech, AI, and O2O (including LINE Pay), and more.


The event will be broadcast live on LINE's own live-streaming service, LINE LIVE. Guest commentators will also sit in on this year's simulcast and give their input on the Conference, which attendees can listen to by tuning into a sub-channel.
