It is hoped that the congress will help Chiba Prefecture in its recovery efforts after suffering damage from the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011.

The event will take place on 14 August 14 to 18 August and is expected to attract 300 members from more than 40 countries.

The Chiba Convention Bureau and International Center has given financial support, consulting, and attraction and entertainment options.
