TCVB has been supporting Tokyo in a bid to host the 2014 APCN (event scale: 1, 000 people). At a meeting of APCN’s Board of Directors held in Seoul on June 5, 2010, it was officially decided that Tokyo will become the host, outperforming competitors China and India.

It will be the first time in 35 years that the APCN will be held in Japan, the host of the inaugural Congress in 1979. The event is planned to be held in Shinagawa Prince Hotel which is popular among Asian participants and is conveniently accessible to and from Haneda Airport which is fast becoming an international hub.
