Although we are continuing to prepare for WOODRISE 2021 KYOTO to be held from October 15, as of September 17, 2021, due to COVID-19, state-of-emergency measures remain in place in Kyoto Prefecture, and the government continues to urge people to avoid moving between prefectures whenever possible. After careful consideration of these circumstances, we have decided to make the following changes to the event.
The event, provisionally announced as “WOODRISE 2021+1,” is now going to be held in late May, 2022 in Tokyo, as “WOODRISE 2021 BUSINESS SESSION” to provide an opportunity to exchange opinions and network with many Japanese and overseas companies that are involved in medium- and high-rise wooden buildings, including participants from overseas who wish to attend the conference in Kyoto in October but are unable to come to Japan due to COVID-19. We are considering the inclusion of seminars and BtoB meetings, as well as social events, such as a gala dinner and technical tours, which were postponed from WOODRISE 2021 KYOTO agenda. Details will be announced on our website once confirmed.
Note 1: You will be asked to fill out a health-check sheet at the entrance of the Kyoto International Conference Center.
Note 2: If you are an in-person participant (pre-registered) and wish to have a PCR test, the conference secretariat will send you a PCR test kit. The kit asks you to provide a saliva sample in a tube that will be provided, and mail it using the enclosed package. You will receive the result by email within 24 hours after your sample arrives at the laboratory. We will cover the cost of the kit and shipping. If you wish to be tested, please submit the request form, below.
