to groups and the

market at PAICE 2016.

Korea is encouraging

incentive and meeting

managers to look beyond

Seoul and out to regional

areas such as its ‘second

area of Gyeongju and the

beachside centre of Yeosu.

Hee Jin Cho, director MICE promotion team

with the Korean National Tourism Organization,

says the office works with regional tourism

bureaux to promote overseas through trade

shows and familiarisation tours. Korea is a

frequent exhibitor at PAICE and recently hosted

a Meeting Newz journalist to boost its media and

trade profile in New Zealand.

Busan, a city that originally arose fromrefugees

fleeing the Korean War between 1950 and 1953,

has a strong infrastructure that includes the

BEXCO convention and exhibition centre. Along

with a large auditorium and various exhibition

halls it includes smaller meeting rooms, banquet

space and foyers.

Cho says Busan is an ideal centre for

conferences relating to marine technology and

biology, ship building and other port and sea

transport issues.

Yeosu, alternatively, is a seaside destination

that came into prominence during the World

Expo 2012 and many of the facilities that were

developed for that occasion are now being used

by the meetings sector.

For history and tradition buffs, Gyeongju is

an obvious choice. The city has taken a leap in

business events with the opening of the new

HICO (Hwaebaek International Convention

Centre) but Gyeogju is best known for its three

UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites. Most

famous are the giant tombs, where Silla kings

were buried thousands of years ago.
