∨ ∧ Overview

Yokohama is a beautiful port city conveniently located 30 minutes from Metropolitan Tokyo by car or rail. As the first Japanese port to open its gate to the world 150 years ago, Yokohama has created a unique blend of Japanese and global culture. The city offers diverse experiences, from authentic Japanese customs to the exciting world class metropolis that offers all the modern amenities and conveniences.
Yokohama is one of Japan’s top three convention cities thanks to its excellent access, state-of-the art meetings infrastructure, facilities, local government support, and people who are ever ready to welcome visitors and conference delegates.
Whether it is a high profile meeting like the APEC (2011, 8,000 attendees) or an association congress with wide socio-economic implications like the 10th Annual Meeting of the International Society for Stem Cell Research (2012, 3,500 attendees), Yokohama has an extensive range of facilities, from international brand hotels to the world-class convention complex PACIFICO Yokohama, to Nissan Stadium, which proudly hosted the FIFA World Cup Final in 2002. Yokohama is easily accessible by two international airports, Haneda and Narita, which make it the perfect location for international meetings. Japan’s active trade and professional association community also mean a high number of local participants for international association congresses.
