    World Rugby and the Japan 2019 Organising Committee have confirmed that the RWC 2019 pool draw will take place on 10 May 2017*.

    As with past Rugby World Cups, the draw is expected to spark excitement and momentum both in Japan and throughout the global rugby community as the event marks the start of planning by teams and fans for the Rugby World Cup 2019 experience.

    In addition, the results of the pool have an implication for business services such as hospitality, ticketing, tours and travel. Which games will generate the most excitement and therefore largest crowds? What happens to low interest games in large metropolitan areas – do they offer opportunity?

    Join us at the Roppongi Hills Club for a recorded screening of the draw followed by an expert panel to discuss these implications and more.

    One lucky guest will go home with two tickets to New Zealand, courtesy of Air New Zealand!
