Finally decided Okinawa as a venue for the Award 2023!

After careful consideration over the various conditions regarding fluidity of international circumstances including potential concerns about security and foreign exchange, the HvO Academy has finally come to the decision to hold the Award 2023 within the nation again, but in Okinawa where we believe is the most appropriate place for all the stakeholders to reunite once a year to share the invaluable moment. And for the timing of the annual occasion, the Academy has also decided to bring it back to mid-July as it used to be in the regular world tours before the pandemic, we assure, anyone to join the occasion would enjoy the best season of the year for the finest beach resort in a paradise on earth to remember forever!
