The Congress, held every four years and attended by over 2,000 actuaries, including 1,500 foreign actuaries representing 100 countries around the world, will be held in the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa International Convention Center Pamir in November 2026.

The recognition of Japan’s long-standing contribution to the International Acturial Assocation (IAA) was one of the main factors that helped Tokyo to secure the bid at the end of last year. The ICA was previously held in Tokyo in 1976. The IAA is the worldwide association of professional actuarial associations, with a number of special interest sections for individual actuaries. 

A number of bodies were involved in securing the bid, including the Japanese government, Tokyo Metropolitan Government, global firms and companies.
