Conventions comprise a diverse range of large-scale gatherings, including prestigious inter-governmental meetings of high-level officials and academic meetings where researchers present cutting-edge findings. Since our establishment, Congrès Inc. has been engaged in bidding for, planning and operating conventions, building up a solid record of achievements and earning the trust of our clients.
We have been privileged to manage numerous international meetings that left a legacy, starting with the International Conference on AIDS convened in 1994, which at the time was one of the largest meetings ever held in Japan (12,000 participants), then the 3rd Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework on Climate Change (COP3) in 1997, on to the G8 Hokkaido Toyako Summit in 2008, the 2012 Tokyo Annual Meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank Group, the G7 Japan 2016 Ise-Shima Summit, the Asian Development Bank’s 50th Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors in 2017, and more.
Congrès also manages numerous large-scale medical conferences, including the General Assembly of the Japan Medical Congress, one of the biggest academic conferences in Japan with approx. 30,000 attendees.
In 2014, the World Ophthalmology Congress (WOC2014) took place in Tokyo, drawing some 20,000 participants, a new record for the largest international medical congress held in Japan. Congrès was appointed the PCO for all aspects of WOC2014, from the promotional activities that started 5 years before, through the preparatory stages and the actual on-site operations.
