PACIFICO Yokohama, one of the largest MICE complexes in Japan*1, was ranked as the top Japanese MICE facility in 2017 in terms of the number of conferences hosted, the number of attendees, and the number of overseas attendees, according to the breakdown of “Statistics Regarding International Conferences held in Japan in 2017”*2, published by Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO).
Spending by participants in international conferences and other MICE events is believed to generate more economic impact than that by general tourists and also create business opportunities and innovations. These events are also said to have high social significance as they help promote cultural, artistic, and academic activities. Our new MICE facility, "Pacifico Yokohama North", is scheduled to open on an adjacent piece of land in the spring of 2020, and already more than 50 international conferences, etc. are confirmed. We will continue contributing to the local community by inviting and hosting many international conferences and other MICE events.
