Convention Center

The main facility for the conference is located at “Sunport Takamatsu” Convention Center. It faces the calm and beautiful Seto Inland Sea and the sea breeze will refresh you during breaks in the conference. The convention area is compact, yet meeting and exhibition spaces are conveniently arranged in one facility, providing an excellent setting for our community conference.

The facility is located across from Japan Railway (JR) Takamatsu Station, so it is just a few minutes walk from the train station and the limousine terminal from Takamatsu Airport. It is also close to Takamatsu Port, which is a gateway to leisure trips on the islands.
