Online Registration for AsiaTIDES is now closed

Online registration is now closed for AsiaTIDES 2020. If you wish to attend and have not registered yet, we do have onsite registration. Onsite registration is located in the Mizuho Foyer of the Westin Hotel -- and will be open Monday, February 24 from 8:00am - 4:45pm as well as Tuesday, February 25 from 8:00am to 6:00pm and Wednesday, February 26 from 7:45am to 4:30pm. 


No WHO or government travel restrictions have been issued for Japan, and this event is scheduled to go ahead as planned. It’s business as usual and we continue to closely monitor the situation from official sources including the World Health Organisation and Japan’s government and local authorities. We are part of an international organisation with dedicated health, safety, security and travel experts, who are monitoring developments, sharing relevant information with our team and providing and confirming guidance.

Our number one priority is the safety of our delegates and colleagues attending our events. Considering the recent virus outbreaks in Wuhan China, we encourage all attendees to follow WHO guidelines for general hygiene at our event in Japan next week.
