Hachioji was chosen as the venue for an international competition in bouldering, a sports climbing discipline that is listed among the sports for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Top climbers from all over the world gathered in Hachioji for this event. The organizers were successful in having Hachioji chosen to host this international competition, with participants from inside and outside the city, for the following year and onwards. Staff set up a tourist information booth and a souvenir stand selling items unique to Hachioji at the convention venue. The staff successfully publicized Hachioji to the domestic and international visitors to the convention. A party was also held in the arena, with Hachioji Kuruma Ningyo (a form of puppet theater) entertaining the participants.
