Japan Conference Ambassador Program

Founded in 2013, the Japan Conference Ambassador Program recognizes notable professionals from leading academic institutions and industries who contribute to the Meeting & Events Industry in Japan. Appointed by the Japan National Tourism Organization based on recommendation letters of local convention bureaus, currently there are more than 50 professionals serving as ambassadors. With outstanding achievements, status, and connections in diverse fields, ambassadors help to raise awareness of the appeal of Japan as a meetings destination, by acting as a bridge between local research communities and the world of international conferences.

A leader in Asia: Japan ranks as the number one meeting and events destination in the region

Having hosted 414 registered international congresses in 2017 according to the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA), Japan places first in Asia and 7th in the global rankings as a destination for hosting international meetings.

A key part of this success is attributed to the efforts of the Japan Conference Ambassadors. Working hand in hand with global organizations, ambassadors act as their local counterpart, helping organize and promote world congresses in Japan, achieving a legacy of high quality contents and participation.
