Core facility of Kobe, a global MICE city
Kobe Convention Center opened on Port Island, the world’s first marine culture city, in 1981 as a device to attract many intellectuals and industries to Kobe both from home and abroad for their interaction through the holding of various events such as international meetings, medical conferences, and other events. Kobe International Exhibition Hall opened Hall No.2 in 1991 and No.3 in 2006 to meet the needs of the time and for the improvement of the facilities and functions. As the Conference Center, Exhibition Hall, Hotel, and Multi-purpose Hall are all located around a train station and the facilities are connected with corridors, it is possible to move around safely and smoothly even in a large-scale event to simultaneously use multiple facilities. Located 8 minutes on the Port Liner from Kobe Airport and about 20 minutes from Shinkansen Shin-Kobe Station via the subway and Port Liner, high accessibility is one of the many features of this major convention center.
