Planned 2020 Opening of New Convention Facilities in Yokohama

Plans are underway for the construction of new convention facilities covering 20,000 sqm
to be located adjacent to the PACIFICO Yokohama convention center.
The new site will help Yokohama gain a competitive edge by meeting the increased demand
for international business events.

Scheduled for a spring 2020 opening, the Takenaka Group will be responsible for the design
and construction.
The Takenaka Corporation is one of the Japan's largest contractors.
From five domed stadiums in Japan (in Sapporo, Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, and Fukuoka), to museums,
hospitals, and office buildings, they have a wealth of experience in a wide range of projects.
More locally, they were responsible for the construction of Yokohama Arena and Nissan Stadium
in the city, venues that can accommodate large events, such as sports matches and concerts.

The Resort Trust Corporation will be responsible for the management of the new hotel planned
adjacent to the convention facilities. 
It will be a fourteen-storied building which has 270 guest rooms (including for both general
guests and members only) . 
The company manages various resort related ventures including exclusive membership hotels and
golf clubs.
The Resort Trust Group also manages the prestigious Kahala Hotel & Resort in Hawaii.

Convention Facilities Overview
*One floor underground. Six floors above ground
*Multi-purpose hall with 7,604 sqm of space  (10,007 sqm including the foyer)
*Meeting room space of 6,562 sqm, 30 meeting rooms
(Roughly the same size as the PACIFICO Yokohama convention center)

Upon completion, the new Convention Center combined with the PACIFICO Yokohama convention center,
will allow for large scale meetings of 5,000 people to be held in both centers at the same time.

In addition to the above projects, progress is being made in the construction of
the Apa Hotel & Resort Yokohama Bay Tower in the harbor area.
With over 2,400 rooms spread over 37 floors, the hotel will be the largest of its kind in Japan
