Convention Facility Being Built in Yokohama, Japan

A 216,000-square-foot convention facility is being built in Yokohama, Japan, next to the like-sized Pacifico Yokohoma convention center. The new venue will open in spring 2020.

The new space will have an 82,100-square-foot exhibition hall and 30 meeting rooms. Combined with the existing facilities, the convention center will be able to handle two 5,000-person events at the same time.

A new 270-room hotel also is planned adjacent to the convention facilities. Near the harbor, the 2,400-room Apa Hotel & Resort Yokohama Bay Tower is under construction; it will open in 2019.
