MICE Future Action 2020: Symposium in a “New-normal” Style
Exactly one year before the Olympics, a hybrid event, the MICE Future Action Symposium, was held at Roppongi Academy Hills on July 24. The event had a total of over 2,000 participants, both in-person and online. The buffet-style party held after the Symposium with multiple safety measures was a splendid showcase of a new social gathering in the “new normal” era.
JSS120 Successfully Concludes First Fully Remote Conference
The 120th Annual Congress of Japan Surgical Society (JSS120) successfully concluded as a completely online conference from August 13 to 15. The Congress gained an impressive record number of over 19,000 registrations from all over Japan and overseas. Some of the sessions (over 250 in total), including the opening ceremony, plenary, and the special lectures, were streamed live from Kioi Conference in Tokyo and other sessions from PACIFICO Yokohama in the neighboring city of Yokohama, where the Congress originally planned to take place.
Congress organizers and participants crave in-person events to return; however, through full-online JSS120, they experienced and realized the benefits of remote gathering.

The number greatly exceeded last year’s total of 2,600 participants.
The meeting was a wonderful opportunity for the organizers, the venue, and various suppliers to learn about the benefits and challenges of a gathering with simultaneous online and in-person experiences.
