The International Conference for Women in Business, the largest conference of its kind in Japan, is open to anyone who is positive and highly motivated.
This Conference has been held every summer since 1996. The aim of the Conference is for highly motivated people from both Japan and abroad to share time together discovering and reaching a higher version of themselves.
The Conference works to provide participants who want to contribute via their work as proud professionals, with a forum to share knowledge, skills, attitude and ways of thinking.Full of opportunity for active exchange, stimulation from international perspectives, and mutual support among peers who share a strong determination to succeed.
Between 800-1,000 highly motivated women join the Conference every year!
Attendee satisfaction rate is over 99%!
The Conference, a ten-hour event, begins at 10 am and ends at 8 pm. The average rate of attendee satisfaction, from the 1st Conference through to last year’s 21st Conference, has consistently exceeded 99%, making it unique among business conferences for women.
The reason behind the high level of satisfaction is the strong motivation of the participants. From high school girls to government officials, entrepreneurs, executives, and CEOs. Positive-minded people from all over the world come to the Conference of their own accord, fostering an inspiring atmosphere for everyone. Approximately 70% of the attendees come alone. Yet by the time the Conference ends at 8 pm, most participants are exicited to find their new friends.
The doors open at 9 am, with the first main session starting at 10 am. The 800-1,000 participants quickly take seats at the round tables in the main venue. The main morning session, which goes until lunchtime, is packed with exciting presentations based on the annual theme. (Simultaneous interpretation is provided for all speeches during this session.) Participants can then enjoy the culinary skills of the hotel chefs by the course lunch served at their tables.
In the lobby, participants mingle and peruse the booths set up by partner companies or browse through the many books authored by the Conference speakers that are available for purchase.
In the afternoon, participants select two from a list of 70-minute Roundtable, interactive discussions. Led by renowned speakers, these interactive discussions provide for, as their name implies, some interactive discussion between the speakers and participants. To enable the flow of the discussion, none of these afternoon sessions use interpreters, with English discussions held entirely in English, and Japanese sessions conducted entirely in Japanese.
The day ends with a networking party featuring a delicious buffet specially prepared by the hotel chefs. This is a time when participants eat, drink, socialize, and converse. Participants from all walks of life and the speakers can be seen enjoying each other’s conversation and company, the ideal way to end a fulfilling and exciting day.

If you are looking to discover new role models, find like-minded friends, share your experiences, and acquire skills and knowledge to enrich your life and career, then this is the exact conference for you. We sincerely look forward to you joining us.Program
