Why Sapporo

The capital of the northern island and prefecture of Hokkaido and the fifth-largest city in Japan, Sapporo gained international prominence when it was chosen as the host to the Winter Olympic Games in 1972. Since then, it has gone from strength to strength, and not only in the field of sports or because of its breweries. When it comes to business events indeed, Sapporo has many assets up its sleeves, starting with a wealth of knowledge in many areas of endeavors, as well as all the facilities you can expect in a fast-growing environment.

It helps, of course, that the Sapporo New Chitose Airport is connected by a number of international routes, while it is only a 1.5 hour flight away from Tokyo - one of the world's busiest air routes with over 70 flights per day. The most special of Japanese cities maybe, over 60% of the city is covered by greenery and 6 meters of snow for the period of 130 days a year, Sapporo's diverse natural surroundings and unforgettable outdoor adventures in both the green and white seasons is another specialty that puts Sapporo on the map as a premier destination in the Asia Pacific.
