Conference/Convention

From October 19 to 24, 2014, the Annual Conference of IBA was held in Tokyo at the Tokyo International Forum as the main venue.

The DMO TOKYO Marunouchi initiative is used for this conference; for example, setting up an open café and other facilities on Marunouchi Naka-Dori Street and using part of the outdoor terrace as a reception space on weekday evenings during the period of the conference. A music concert and cultural experience were held in the space. Conference participants received a map with coupons introducing MICE-related facilities (such as shops) in the Marunouchi area.
With this international conference, a system to proactively make use of local space for MICE events has been created.
