The Summit will be held primarily in the Maranouchi area of Tokyo. We've arranged a room block via JTB at the prestigious Imperial Hotel. The hotel is within walking distance of many of our Summit venues. Additionally, we'll be providing transportation service to and from this hotel to some of our special events.
