Kyoto’s congress wins highlight ancient city’s modern appeal
Historic Japanese city secures a series of bids to host four scientific and academic congresses between 2018 and 2020

12 Sep 2016

A tribute to Kyoto’s growing appeal among meeting planners, the Japanese city recently secured four high-profile bids for international scientific and academic congresses.

Matthew Stevens, of Kyoto Convention & Visitors Burea (KCVB), said there was comprehensive bureau support, world-class meeting facilities, strong local hosts, and cultural heritage. But cutting-edge innovation, added to a perfect mix of what high quality scientific and scholarly conferences need to make the first big step into Asia.


The World Conference on Carbon (CARBON 2020)

CARBON, taking place June 28 – July 3, 2020 at Miyako Messe congress and exhibition centre, is due to welcome 800 delegates from 30 countries.

Kyoto was selected on the basis of its dedication to environmentally friendly practice, and Japan’s relationship with carbon innovation. Three of the world’s greatest carbon material manufacturers are located in Japan.


The 46th Annual Meeting of the International Society for the Study of Lumber Spine (ISSLS 2019)

After a year of bidding preparations, Kyoto secured the deal for the 2019 ISSLS back in May. The event will take place June 3-7 2019 at the Westin Miyaho Hotel, with an expected turn out of 520 attendees from 28 countries.

ISSLS has been picking up steam in the Asia Pacific region in recent years. Former hosts include Seoul (2014) and Singapore (2016). Kyoto 2019 will mark the third Asia gathering in seven years.


The 31st Annual Meeting of the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE 2018)

Scheduled for June 23-25, SASE 2018 is due to attract 1,000 attendees from 18 countries.

This will be the first time that the event has been held outside of Europe of America. The named venue, Doshisha University, is internationally recognised in the socio-economics field.

SASE 2018 is expected to promote socio-economic study in Kyoto.


5th World Parkinson Congress (WPC 2019)

The World Parkinson Congress voted unanimously in favour of holding their 2019 congress in Kyoto. The Asia debut of the event is expected to attract 3,200 delegates representing 50 countries.

Factors that influenced the decision were Japan’s highly respected Parkinson’s specialists, the safety of the destination and the bureau’s efforts to support the congress’ vision.

The event is hoped to have a significant impact on the lives of those with Parkinson’s in Japan and Asia.
