Tokyo – a great place to have an international conference!
Around 700 professionals from all over the world recently gathered in Tokyo for American Bar Association Section of International Law (ABA-SIL) 2016 Fall Meeting.

With high evaluation about the support of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) and Tokyo Convention & Visitors Bureau (TCVB), Ms. Sara P. Sandford, the Chair, commented on the significance and merit to hold the Associations meeting in Tokyo as follows; “It was our first meeting of that size held in Asia, which could be a very exciting event. Since the Section decided to have an event in Asia, we looked at different options and obviously Tokyo was among the top from the initial stage because of its scale and global recognition. In addition to that, we have the largest membership in Tokyo and from that point of view Tokyo was the right choice. Incidentally, I have lived and worked in Japan in the past and I knew that the logistics in Japan would be very smooth and easy in comparing to other destinations.

Sara continued, “Furthermore, Tokyo was one of the best places to organize the event because we could really count on local staff. They are good at communicating, acting promptly and very helpful, which makes the organizing the event particular easy with great comfort. Especially, TCVB was a wonderful addition to our conference. They were very professional in sharing the information about venues, which helped us to identify the possible details quickly and their assistance in welcoming the participants at the airport was hugely appreciated. I have heard very favorable comments from the participants about the wonderful cultural programs as well as complimentary city tours sponsored by the TMG. Moreover, Tokyo Information Desk prepared as one of their supports for the conference, allowed the participants to arrange things right onsite in terms of visiting somewhere in Tokyo. I totally appreciate their whole support, which convinced me Tokyo is a great place to have an international conference!

International Continence Society back to Tokyo this Fall

International Continence Society back to Tokyo this Fall

More than 2000 specialists from around the world gathered in Tokyo this fall for the International Continence Society (ICS) annual meeting.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) and Tokyo Convention and Visitors Bureau (TCVB) jointly contributed to the success of the meeting in sponsoring/organizing the welcome desks at the airports, Japanese cultural programs, city tours and the technical visit to be arranged for the overseas participants.

Dr. Adrian WAGG, General Secretary of the ICS highly evaluated the support of the TCVB and commented on the entire meeting: “For the International Continents Society coming to Tokyo was very exciting opportunity for the 1st time since 1997. Clearly a lot has changed since that time and for our international audience Tokyo presents a very excited destination. What is different this time, I think, it is the setting – we have a marvelous setting for the conference and the city itself.

As a result of a survey carried out with the members of International Continents Society about their preferred city to hold the ICS meeting 4 years ago, Tokyo was the most popular city with the high voting by the members.

Tokyo, as a destination, presented some unique challenges for a non-Japanese speaking audience, but we have seen how great the hospitality is and extremely friendly reception, very polite people, very clean and well maintained city.

As far as the International Continents Society meeting goes, the Tokyo Hospitality team staff have been polite, courteous, welcoming and friendly with continuous smile and abundant assistance. I am sure that given a chance the International Continents Society would certainly come to Tokyo again”.
