we propose Okinawa as the
“place where you can encounter inspiration and creativity.”

expresses the creation of “new value” through inspiration
and connected ideas that emerge from “dialogue.”
The symbol in the upper right means that ideas born from MICE will evolve significantly
and that the businesses of the MICE participants will take a great leap forward in the world.
The four balloons symbolize the four elements of MICE and are
symbolically superimposed on the islands of Okinawa that are developing as business cities.

Okinawa is attractive because it is possible to hold meetings by the sea, with its beautiful coral reefs and natural environment. In addition, holding meetings away from the everyday atmosphere of gathered researchers provides stimulus for more vigorous communication at meetings.
The beautiful coral reefs, subtropical greenery forests, unique culture and customs, food, and warm hospitality passed down from the Ryukyu dynasty will allow all participants to get out of their daily life and that generates active communication and inspiration during the meetings. I In addition to its attractive location and excellent connection to major airports in Asia, the Okinawa’s greatest strength lies in the right combination of its ability to provide ample urban functions for conferences and refreshing feeling that motivates the participants.
Friendship / deep affection and praying for world peace
In addition to the invitation lectures, the poster session, the reception and the banquet at the plenary session, we had various opportunities like campus tours, lectures at the local universities and satellite workshops to build and deepen the networks between participants, local universities’ staffs and students.
Okinawa is blessed with bountiful nature, and has the effect of enriching conversations at gatherings held within this natural paradise. Also, while giving the impression of being “far away”, Okinawa has the added big attraction of having infrastructure that allows for easy access from within Japan and Asia, infrastructure that will continue to be enhanced.
