The 62nd Annual Spring Meeting of the Japanese Society of Clinical Cytology held at Makuhari Messe
In 2020, the organization’s annual meeting was held online due to the growing concerns on Covid19 infection. After a year of thorough preparation following the last year’s meeting, and where vaccination on medical personnel had been administered, the organizer had decided to pursue delivering the hybrid meeting to allow more presence of in-person participation. Yet, eliminating any possibility of virus infection among the participants, and implementing necessary preventive measures including the installation of the automated thermal body scanner, application of electronic check-in system, social distancing policy, and remote system monitoring, etc. Participants were also issued an ID showing they have satisfied the medical qualification to participate in person. These precautions are to ensure the safety and ease of mind of people at the venue. The Professor of Reproduction Medicine of Chiba University and the Congress President, Professor Makio Shozu expressed his appreciation to people who contributed to the success of the meeting despite the pandemic, and commented on the positive outcome of the meeting especially in the field of Medical Science.
Chiba Convention Bureau (CCB) and the Congress President Professor Shozu started the collaboration in 2017, and worked together towards the realization of the Meeting. Since then, CCB has provided assistance from venue introduction and PCO selection to reception planning, and information and giveaway provision, and more. Since the meeting was held in the midst of a pandemic, was a tricky decision for the organizer to pursue on the ‘face-to-face’ side of the meeting. Yet, through the proper consultation and collaboration between the Bureau, the venue which is Makuhari Messe, and the organizer, resulted in a successful deliberation of the Annual Meeting. CCB hopes that the positive outcomes rooted here bring an even deeper relationship to all the people involved that will lead to even more fruitful encounters in the road ahead.
