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 – anticipated to lead to future breakthroughs in investigative dermatology and cutaneous biology – expects to attract over 2,500 specialists from more than 50 countries.’
The main factor for Tokyo’s bid win was the recognition of Japan’s long-standing contribution to the ISID’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.
