Immerse Yourself at Congress '19

Come to Congress in Tokyo and immerse yourself—in the city, the culture, the food, the technology and, of course, our dynamic schedule of incomparable content and inspiring speakers.

This year's venue, the Miraikan – The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, is a fittingly futuristic home for the event and promise a rich and interactive experience. You'll have encounters with autonomous robots, marvel at immersive films under an impressive dome theatre, experience NHK's new 8K VR technology, and even virtually stroll through King Tut's tomb.

In our sessions, we'll explore new strategies and the latest tech, provide inspiration for future projects, meet one of Japan's leading roboticists, and maybe even have a visit from the King of Monsters: Godzilla. Plus the return of popular sessions including What's the Buzz, Speed Dating, Close Encounters, and a sequel to last year's millennials session.


Cultural Getaway to Kyoto

Depart Tokyo and embark on the Shinkansen, Japan’s famed bullet train, to the Kansai region for a cultural getaway to Kyoto. As Japan’s capital city for more than 1,000 years until 1868, Kyoto has protected much of the history and traditional landmarks that once made it the epicentre for Japan.

This trip includes an extremely special and exclusive visit to Sugimoto Residence, a private home and one of the largest machiya (traditional townhouses) in Kyoto. Visitors will have the chance to experience what life was like in Kyoto during the 18th and 19th centuries, and will enjoy a traditional breakfast with the family.

Booking Deadline: October 31, 2019
