Our Business Portfolio

The business of creating communication
With conventions as our core business, Congress Corporation now creates fora for communication in many forms. Our portfolio covers a broad range of domains, from high-profile state-level meetings such as G7 summits, to medical research and treatment, energy, environmental issues, science and technology, finance, gender equality, culture and sport. Wherever issues of concern to society are being debated, Congress Corporation is there.

Our convention management business led us to expand into facility management. We have also broadened our business portfolio even further to include running our own MICE facilities and hosting our own exhibitions and other events.

Our Business Context

Supporting fora where social issues are debated
Due to a number of factors, including its declining birthrate, aging population and dwindling labor force, Japan is confronting a variety of social issues. As a developed nation facing new challenges, our country could be said to be ahead of the curve. In order to ride out those challenges and create a better future, it is essential for our society to innovate and bring forth new knowledge.

In various ways, Congress Corporation supports the fora that catalyze the birth of new knowledge destined to shape the future. Through our work, we are helping science and industry to advance and helping our society to solve its problems. We believe that this will also lead to a peaceful future where people treat one another with consideration.

Five Business Domains

Congress Corporation supports the success of high-profile international governmental meetings by providing specialist planning and management services.
We also manage large-scale scientific and academic conferences.
By supporting fora that generate new knowledge, we contribute to the growth of scholarship in Japan. Our management portfolio also includes corporate events in a wide range of industries.

In recent years, in our capacity as a member of the regional community rather than simply as an operating company, we have also been participating, right from the conceptual stage, in urban planning projects that have conference facilities at their core. Some examples include Knowledge Capital - Congrès Convention Center, in front of Osaka Station, and CongresSquare Nihonbashi in the heart of Tokyo.

Congress Corporation manages the operation of some 80 cultural and tourism facilities, including science museums and commercial facilities, as well as more operationally-challenging facilities such as observation decks and aquaria. We provide each facility with a full complement of staff and a site director who handles recruitment and training, shift management, service improvement, etc. in delivering services to the customers.

Interacting with visitors at luxury brand events and trade shows, handling registration duties at international film festivals, and running the Japan pavilion at international expos, all require first-class hospitality skills. Congress Corporation can provide the right personnel. We have also established a solid reputation for delivering high-quality multilingual services at international meetings and events.

Congress Corporation has taken up the new challenge of hosting our own exhibitions. One of these is Japan Drone, now in its 4th year, the first specialist exhibition serving Japan's unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) industry. Going forward, we will continue to seek out opportunities, organizing specialist exhibitions in promising new fields, energizing Japanese industry, and helping it to grow and develop.

Convention planning and management
50th Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors of the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
Held at PACIFICO Yokohama over the four-day period from May 4 to 7, 2017, this event went off very successfully. It was not the first Japan-based ADB Annual Meeting to have been supported by Congress Corporation: we also handled the 30th (held in Fukuoka) and the 40th (held in Kyoto).

Urban planning projects and MICE facilities
In 2009, Nagoya Congress Center was selected as the first large government MICE facility to be operated by a private company – none other than Congress Corporation.
Shortly after the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011, we held a charity concert at this venue. Until then, we had focused exclusively on hiring out the venue for events hosted by other organizations. This concert marked the beginning of our expansion into hosting our own events.
