Highlighting Kagawa's MICE

The mild climate and calm, beautiful scenery along the coast of the Seto Inland Sea, the numerous impressive modern artworks, a food culture nurtured from nature’s bounty, archetypal images of Japan still strongly evident, culture and traditions, maritime transportation, unique industries…
Located along the coast of the Seto Inland Sea, Kagawa Prefecture retains undiscovered charms of Japan that cannot be found in other larger or tourist cities. These charms are nestled in a small area as if in a miniature garden, making Kagawa the perfect place for enjoying Japan to the full.
When organizing MICE, such as international meetings and academic conferences, efficient meeting management is made possible by partnering with nearby facilities and networks, with Sunport Takamatsu, the location of the G7 ICT Minsters' Meeting in Takamatsu, Kagawa, as a focal point. We look forward to seeing you in Kagawa Prefecture.

About the Kagawa Prefecture MICE Promotion Council

In addition to increasing Kagawa's brand visibility and bringing positive economic effects to the area where the events are held, MICE events are expected to facilitate interpersonal networking within the businesses and fields of research of the participants. MICE also creates a venue for sharing knowledge and information, which in turn generates new business opportunities.
In April 2016, the G7 ICT Ministers’ Meeting was held in Takamatsu. Hosting such a world-renowned international conference provided the momentum to further promote MICE in Kagawa. The Kagawa Prefecture MICE Promotion Council was formed in November 2016, with the Governor of Kagawa as Chairperson and the Mayor of Takamatsu as Vice Chairperson. The Council is comprised of the Kagawa Prefectural Government, Takamatsu City Government, and MICE-related organizations (venue facilities, accommodation facilities, travel agencies and related companies, economic associations, and more), all coming together with the goal of promoting international governmental meetings and large-scale MICE events in Kagawa.
