But why should you select Tokyo as the location to hold your conference or business event? Let's have a look.

Why Tokyo?

First of all, choosing a Japanese event management company means choosing excellence. Event companies here are finely tuned machines that utilize Japan’s many advantages to craft the perfect academic conference .

These advantages include being:

● a robust economy and business center of the world
● a world leader in IT and robotics
● a global hub for academic research

Let`s dive a bit further into these advantages.

Tokyo: economic giant and global business center

Tokyo has evolved into an economic giant that’s unrecognizable from its humble beginnings as a fishing village known as Edo. The Greater Tokyo Area is vast and has a population of more than 37 million people. That population powers the world’s largest metropolitan economy.

According to CityLab, Tokyo’s $1.6 trillion GDP-PPP is only slightly less than that of the whole of South Korea. Tokyo’s economy is so staggering, were it a country, it would rank 18th in the world, giving it a similar ranking to Canada or Australia.

What does all this have to do with an academic conference? Hosting an academic conference with a Japanese event management company in Tokyo gives you access to all of the benefits of a top metropolis and thriving business center.

>Recognized as the best city in the world by Conde Nast Traveler, Tokyo is a dream destination. With efficient public transport, world-class hotels, and arguably the world’s best cuisine, Tokyo is safe and easy to explore. Your academic conference attendees are sure to be thrilled to get the chance to visit Tokyo and will leave the conference feeling inspired and motivated.

Tokyo: world leader in IT and robotics

Tokyo is also home to more Global 500 companies than London or New York City. The majority of Japan’s major corporations operate out of Tokyo, making it the perfect place to connect with businesses and seek out new opportunities.

Japan is known for its curious and inventive approach to IT. Embracing new technologies as they happen, Japan stays ahead of the curve in industries like electronics, IT and robotics. As a result, Tokyo’s information and communications industry alone accounts for 34.1% of Tokyo’s GDP-GPP.

To encourage new talent in IT, technology and engineering, the Tokyo Metropolitan government actively nurtures startups. The Shibuya region of Tokyo is a startup village known as Bit Valley, in homage to California’s Silicon Valley. Over 20 years, hundreds of enthusiastic newcomers to the industry have worked hard to make their wildest dreams a reality. These startups have boosted Japan’s already flourishing robotics industry, promising to change our lives with service robots sooner than we think.

Tokyo is Asia’s wellspring of innovation. Whatever your research discipline or subject, Tokyo is the best place to host an academic conference and learn about how Japanese IT and robotics are changing the world we live in.

Tokyo: global hub for academic research

Tokyo’s universities stand out as some of the most productive learning establishments in the world. There are more than 140 universities and 150 research institutions in Tokyo, nurturing the minds of more than 700,000 students.

A hub of academic excellence, Tokyo will immerse your research associates in cutting-edge research in areas such as:

● revolutionary treatments for spinal cord injuries
● 3D printer use for genetic engineering
● microrobotics
● theoretical physics
● hydrogen energy
● aerospace sciences
● life sciences and drug discovery

Pharmaceutical companies are expanding into Japan to utilize research excellence. The investment afforded by pharmaceutical companies helps finance the work of Japanese researchers. This industry-academia collaboration boosts research, spurring on big impact breakthroughs.

Tokyo is at the forefront of research excellence in areas that can truly change the world. Whatever your academic discipline or area of study, Tokyo is the most exciting and dynamic place to host an academic conference.
