The Shangri-La Hotel Tokyo is a swish affair, occupying the top 11 floors of a skyscraper in the Marunouchi district: the perfect pied-a-terre for visitors here for business or pleasure.  A stunning art collection, lavish floral arrangements, an abundance of dripping chandeliers, and generously-sized rooms are just some of the things you can expect, besides enormous windows that boast some of the best panoramas of the city.

The Workshop covered many relevant themes and topics facing institutional investors.
