Fukuoka was selected after heated competition with other cities in Japan and overseas, for its capability as a host of internaional convention. The world-class access efficiency, concentrated facilities for accomodation, along with the city's good experience in handling international conventions were among the many factors that made Fukuoka the second Japanese site in SIU's history after Tokyo (1970) .
