∨ ∧ Overview
Located on the northern island of Hokkaido, Sapporo is both geographically and metaphorically, at the top of Japan. The average snow accumulation in Sapporo reaches about 6 meters every year, which is the heaviest among all other metropolises around the world. However, such conditions have never had any negative economic or social impacts on the city and its citizens. With forest covering 71,680ha, 64% of the total area of the city, the coexistence with nature is what makes Sapporo so unique, giving countless opportunities for visitors to get out and explore the picturesque countryside abound with natural hot springs and ski resorts. Offering numerous cultural activities, shopping sites, a wide variety of entertainment, alongside its famous Sapporo beer, fresh sea food and delicious cuisine, there is plenty to experience in the northern capital of Japan. As the former host city of the Winter Olympics and FIFA World Cup, we have been dealing with large scale events for more than twenty years. A city with four distinct seasons, Sapporo offers a great variety of high quality facilities, accommodations, and easy access to the city with sufficient flight connections. Hokkaido has previously been the location of the G8 Summit in 2008, proving that we can handle high profile events in style, provide comfort and assure safety. As a team, we favor to refer to our daily accomplishments through the term “MaxiMICE”. The efforts and the creativity of our staff members are what allow our organization to deliver an extra value to our clients. As an organization, Sapporo Convention Bureau follows its 3C (Communication-Convention-Citizen) concept, basing on the idea to connect MICE industry players and the community at large.
