Tokyo Wins Major International Conferences

Tokyo has placed the winning bids for two international conferences; the 29th Harvard World Model United Nations (WorldMUN2020) and the World Confederation for Physical Therapy General Meeting and Congress in 2023.

The WCPT Congress will be held on 30 May – June 4 and is expected to be one of WCPT’s largest with over 6,000 delegates from over 120 countries, as the Japanese Physical Therapy Association (JPTA) is currently WCPT’s largest member organisation. As part of the congress a range of events will be planned to maximise participation from physical therapists in Japan and the global physical therapy community.

WorldMUN 2020, set for 16-20 March, is expected to attract over 2,100 university students, including 2,000 foreign participants from more than 110 countries. These participants will engage in debate and discussion on a variety of significant modern and historical issues while simulating committees of the United Nations, featuring a multitude of member states, international organisations, and related governmental and non-governmental bodies.

Mr. Anirudh Suresh, Secretary General of the Harvard World Model United Nations Secretariat commented: “We have chosen Tokyo because of the unique venues that present a mix of tradition and modernity and because of the financial and logistical support from the Tokyo government (TCVB) and the host team.”
