Message from FACP Chairperson

Masami Shigeta
FACP Chairperson
Dear FACP members

This is the first time that the FACP’s Conference will be held in Busan.

I am so glad it was possible to organize our 36th Annual Conference on the beautiful waterfront of Haeundae.

Asia's largest port city, the City of Busan is a gateway city to the world. It has grown a strong bond to many cities all over the world, and it is famous for the successful hosting of various large-scale international conventions and festivals.

This year our theme will be “A New Horizon for Cultural Industries”.
I am excited to welcome Mr. Seung-Whan Song, the General Manager of Ceremonies of PyeongChang Winter Olympics 2018 as a keynote speaker. We all remember the marvelous opening ceremony of PyeongChang Winter Olympics 2018.

I am also glad to welcome Mr. Alan Fletcher, President and CEO at Aspen Music Festival and School, which will celebrate its 70th anniversary next year. I am sure it will be inspiring to hear about one of the oldest Music Festivals in North America.

I hope nobody will miss the opportunity to attend their presentations.
