The 2018 World Congress will be held at the International Conference Center in Hiroshima (ICCH).

The ICCH opened in 1989 and lies within Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. This central venue is easily accessible by bus, streetcar, taxi or just walk there if you're staying nearby!

We are very excited to be holding our World Congress at this wonderful venue which we believe will offer delegates a great congress experience. The ICCH's location within the Peace Memorial Park means delegates can take time to explore the park after a day listening to presentations, or go for a walk during a lunch break to take advantage of the peace and quiet if you want some time out.
