The presentation ceremony was held on the occasion of the convention of Japanese Rotarians at the New Takanawa Prince Hotel in Tokyo, to celebrate the Rotary's successes in promoting vocational ethics over the past century. Approximately 1,500 Japanese Rotarians were there to witness the presentation and hear Dr. Sen's acceptance speech. Past laurates of this high award have all been international heads or former heads of state.
