Characteristics of Sendai City

 ①The city is a harmony of urban conveniences and nature.
Sendai city is the focal point for politics, economy and culture in the Tohoku region, but is called “the city of trees” due to the lush natural environment such as the avenues of zelkova trees in the city. It is also known as an “academic city” because of Tohoku University, constantly attracting attention from various fields around the world as a center of academic research, and many other diverse higher education institutions.

②A wonderful environment for holding conventions plus many past achievements.
In Sendai City, we aim to provide three unique convention styles: the “City Convention” held at city hotels, “Large-scale Conventions” at the International Conference Hall, and “Resort Conventions” held at hot springs away from the hustle and bustle of everyday. We are able to make suggestions to meet your requests. We have extensive experience in holding international government conventions such as the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Senior Officials’ Meeting III, the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction 2015 Sendai Japan, G7 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors’ Meeting, Sendai, as well as large scale conventions such as the 80th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Japanese Circulation Society, the 137th Annual Meeting of the Pharmaceutical Society of Japan, and the 90th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Orthopaedic Association.
