Yokohama to Host 10 Large International Convention in 2020

Yokohama will host ten large international conventions which respectively will attract 1,000 or more participants in 2020.

These are the fruit of the support the City of Yokohama, Yokohama Convention & Visitors Bureau and Pacific Convention Plaza Yokohama (PACIFICO Yokohama) have together given to convention organizers through public subsidies and other means designed to support their efforts to attract international conventions to Yokohama. Promotional activities began up to approximately nine years ago for these conventions to be held in 2020.

The Minato Mirai 21 district will further enhance its MICE functions with the successive openings of PACIFICO Yokohama North, hotels and concert venues. Highlighting our track record of hosting events including the APEC JAPAN 2010 meeting and the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7) and our advantages in hosting MICE, we will continue proactive promotion activities targeting medium- and large-scale international conventions and medical conventions, which have strong economic synergies, as well as conventions on IoT and other growing areas.
