Today, on April 24, PACIFICO Yokohama North is celebrating its first anniversary.
PACIFICO Yokohama North faced an unexpectedly difficult start, postponing its opening ceremony as it opened during a declared state of emergency. Since then, however, it has welcomed use incorporating a new style of hybrid event format that combines a web-based online format and conventional physical format.
The hybrid format has made it possible to hold international conferences in a form that connects participants from remote areas online. These events have included the ICCA Asia Pacific Chapter Summit
and the 2020 JCI World Congress Yokohama
. PACIFICO Yokohama North was also used as the venue for examinations and for events such as the Yokohama City coming-of-age ceremony, with social distancing-considerate layouts that effectively draw on the venue's features as a multipurpose hall offering Japan's largest space of approximately 6,300㎡.
Looking ahead, our staff will work as one to provide a MICE holding environment that meets international standards for safety and security, while enacting proper measures against contagious diseases in accordance with our newly acquired certification in the GBAC international standard. We hope to become a shore for exchanges that connect Japan and Yokohama with the world, and to serve as a beloved facility. We ask for your continued warm support.
We have decided to continue the well-received 3D & VR virtual private showing of PACIFICO Yokohama North, which we have offered online from last year. You can experience the venue freely in 360 degrees, as if actually walking through the space.
