A Visit to the Land of Cherry Blossoms Ahead of the Crowds: IMF Japan Patient and Doctor Meetings: July 2012
We have just returned from a series of meetings in Kyoto, Japan: July 6-8, 2012. Kyoto is the site for the IMW (International Myeloma Workshop) meeting in April 2013 so it was especially helpful to have a preview of the city and International Conference Center (ICC) venue. The ICC is a large center and well capable of hosting the IMW 2013 meeting. However, it will certainly be a challenge to organize all the myeloma scientific activities next year in a city known for and annually overwhelmed by visitors to the Cherry Blossom Festivals, which occur at that exact time in April 2013.
