The Incredible Impact of ISTH in Kyoto

Our partner The Iceberg is currently running a series of videos recorded at the event which celebrate “Incredible Impacts” and the wider effects meetings have on a destination and its region. The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) won its grant for creating legacy through the World Thrombosis Day Campaign.

Placing a global spotlight on the often overlooked and misunderstood condition of thrombosis, the ISTH’s World Thrombosis Day campaign organised more than 8,200 events across the globe in 2016. The team demonstrated creative thinking in a number of ways, reaching beyond tourism, with one standout example being their annual Twitter Chat digital event. By creating a platform for people to talk about the condition, sharing expert advice and insights, the project garnered an impressive 45 million impressions worldwide.

This time, they focus on a different ISTH legacy project that was also submitted to “Incredible Impacts”: the holding of the society’s 2011 Congress and Annual SSC Meeting in Kyoto after the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.
