Panoramic Meeting Place
The Kagawa International Conference Hall can accommodate many different styles of conferences that satisfy the contents and scale of conferences such as horse-shoe, classroom or theatre style seating.
The horse-shoe style seating presents the poise and style appropriate for a full-scale conference, which is set up with a conference unit in all center circle seats to support the running of the conference smoothly.
The 7th floor has a 94-fixed-seat room (as well as space provided for 4wheelchairs), which can also be used for seating observers and the media.
The front wall of the conference hall can be opened freely by touching the operating panel.
The breathtaking view of Seto Inland Sea spreads outside the window and provides the best backdrop unique to this conference hall as it gives an impression that a painting has come to life in front of your eyes.
Take in the sight created by the nature of Seto Inland Sea and its waterfront setting during break while your conference is in transition.

The Greenroom can be used as a waiting room for guests or staff meeting room. It is useful in managing the progress of a conference as the status of the conference captured on camera can be checked via the monitor.
This is the main area for office work and operation for conference organizers. It also functions as a press-room and is fully equipped with a display system that allows for the monitoring of the conference. It allows for an accurate grasp of the progress status of the conference.
A 250-inch screen is set up at the front of the conference room to respond to the various usage formats of the conference. There is also a cover for the electronic touch panel at the front of the screen, which can be opened easily when needed.
The Control Room supports the smooth and pleasant running of the conference with the latest facilities for sound, acoustics, lighting and video. The sound of the conference comes through very clearly as it is transmitted in a digital format.
The Interpreter Booth can support six different languages. It is positioned to oversee the conference hall, which allows the interpreters to provide accurate interpretation by watching the speaker captured on camera.
Entrance Lobby & Reception
The tranquil colors create a calm balance and the vaulted structure through the 6th and 7th floors gives the place a sense of openness. The reception can also be used as a cloak area.
The entrance lobby area is connected to the exhibition hall, the Great Hall of Sunport Takamatsu and conference spaces via an access-way. It allows for a smooth integral use of the facilities.
The art work that greets the visitors at the entrance lobby represents Takamatsu Symbol Tower, which came into being in Sunport Takamatsu based on the concept of creating the new Tamamo Castle of the 21st Century. It depicts a mother and child snuggling against each other in a sun disk and it expresses the hope that the Symbol Tower would represent peace and prosperity.
