Award Wins for Three Kyoto International Conferences
Three international conferences held in Kyoto have been presented with awards by the Japan National Tourism Organisation (JNTO).
The conferences were recognised at the JNTO Award Ceremony, held on December 11 2012, with events being held in Kyoto winning three of the eight awards presented. The awards formed part of the 22nd International Meetings Exhibition at the Tokyo International Forum.
The World Economic History Congress (WEHC), which will hold its annual conference at Kyoto International Conference Center in 2015, received the Winning Bid Award.
The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) received the Successful Conference Award for its XXIII Congress of ISTH, which was held in Kyoto in July 2011.
And the IEEE International Conference on Communications held in June 2011 took an award for exceeding predicted delegate participation despite being held in the aftermath of the earthquake.
James Kent, Kyoto Convention Bureau’s international marketing manager said: “Kyoto Convention Bureau would like to congratulate all three organisations on their award wins. The success demonstrates Kyoto’s appeal as an international business destination. Kyoto is an unique city as not only does it offer business event organisers modern facilities but it also allows delegates to enhance their experience through the city’s rich heritage and culture. With more new venues coming on board and new infrastructure being built I’m sure we will continue to see an increase in business opportunities within the international incentives and conferences market in the future."
