Welcome Reception - Sapporo TV Tower: Monday, July 3, 18:00 - 20:00

A welcome reception with a stand-up buffet and free drinks will be held on the second floor (about 5th floor level of surrounding buildings) of the Sapporo TV Tower located on the east edge of Odori Park, downtown Sapporo. The Sapporo TV Tower, built in 1956, is only 147.2 meters high but brings you a nostalgic moment. We hope you enjoy seeing the beautiful landscape transition from sunset to night. A complementary single ticket to the higher observation deck will be provided to each person.

Sundowner Reception - Cafeteria: Tuesday, July 4, 17:15 - 18:30

An additional reception with a limited number of selected wines and cheeses produced in Hokkaido will be held at the cafeteria (lunch venue). The Sundowner Reception will be closed when we run out of wine. Don't be late!

Banquet - Sapporo Park Hotel: Wednesday, July 5, 18:30 - 21:00

A sit-down banquet with a buffet dinner and free drinks will be held at the Sapporo Park Hotel located at the gate of Nakajima Park, which is another beautiful park in downtown Sapporo. The attendees can walk around the park before the sundown. An entertainment program in addition to the speeches from committee members is planned. Don't miss it!

Lunches - Cafeteria: Tuesday, July 4 - Thursday, July 6, 13:00 - 14:30
