Tokyo was chosen to host the 2014 Annual Meeting of the International Bar Association (IBA) as a result of a voting at the IBA Board Meeting held on February 21 in Dubai. The Annual Meeting is a large-scale international conference where approximately 5, 000 lawyers gather from about 195 countries worldwide. A general meeting, conferences, exhibitions and a variety of other events are held during the roughly six-day period. The Annual Meeting is planned to be held at the Tokyo International Forum, and the TCVB predicts to gain considerably high economic ripple effects from this event in terms of tourism in Tokyo.
