Fukuoka Convention & Visitors Bureau on behalf of Fukuoka City would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to the indispensable support by International Director Furo of LCI, the cooperators from Fukuoka Prefectural Governor to convention facilities including convention zone and Fukuoka Yahoo!
