Global MICE Cities

Hiroshima is a historical and cultural town with two UNESCO World Heritage sites—the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park (Atomic Bomb Dome) and Itsukushima Shrine—and is also known as a hub for manufacturing technology. Hiroshima has peacefully developed from the ashes of devastation, with achievements in research by Hiroshima University, the Japan Fisheries Research and Education Agency and others as well as global success by corporations in the automotive, machinery, chemical and other industries. Hiroshima is an ideal location for conferences that strive to solve problems through peaceful, intellectual exchange. The compact city center is home to several facilities that can accommodate over 10,000 participants when combined.
