  • Annual Ireland Japan Business Awards - every November in a Tokyo hotel
  • Guest Speaker events - Irish politicians, economists, CEO's travelling to Japan visit the IJCC to share their views with our members
  • Events with other Chambers of Commerce - we have yearly networking events with colleagues from other chambers including ACCJ, BCCJ, European chambers
  • Ambassador Briefings - Corporate members receive regular updates from the Ambassador at a breakfast or dinner event

Chamber events are a great opportunity to network and gain knowledge about various aspects of the Ireland-Japan relationship and doing business in Japan. And to keep up with developments in Ireland. Our members are busy people, so we aim to offer added value in the choice of speakers and the type of activity. We hope that you will find something of interest in our programme of events throughout the year.

The Chamber also works closely with other Chambers of Commerce and is a member of the influential European Business Council (EBC), the trade policy arm for European business interests in Japan.

Non-members interested in attending an event are also very welcome where space permits.
