The Tokyo Convention & Visitors Bureau (TCVB) has won the bid to host the 1st Meeting of the International Societies for Investigative Dermatology in 2023 (ISID2023).
ISID2023 is to be held from May 10-14, 2023 at Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo. The event â€“ anticipated to lead to future breakthroughs in investigative dermatology and cutaneous biology â€“ expects to attract over 2,500 specialists from more than 50 countries.’
The main factor for Tokyoâ€™s bid win was the recognition of Japanâ€™s long-standing contribution to the ISIDâ€™s mission to strengthen the field of dermatology, both scientifically and internationally. Japanese Society for Investigative Dermatology (JSID) also plans to foster education and collaboration, and create a strong network between specialists and researchers in the Asia/Oceania region.
This win would not have happened without the strong support from academia and government institutions, with TCVB fully supporting the local bid committee in preparing a full bid proposal and presentation materials. Furthermore, assured financial and in-kind support from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government were decisive factors.
The ISID was founded in Edinburgh in 2013 through close cooperation between three sister societies – the JSID, the Society for Investigative Dermatology and the European Society for Dermatological Research. It is the first meeting to include other Asian/Oceanian societies.
