James Widgren, international marketing co-ordinator, Kyoto Convention Bureau comments: “As Japan’s leading destination for international meetings and events we welcome the arrival of the redeveloped ROHM Theatre. It will be a fantastic space for meetings and events, balancing our cultural and artistic creativity with excellence in the field of meetings events and incentives.”
